Here at PPS whilst we are known for polishing flat stainless steel products such as sheet and plate, we are also heavily involved in prestigious architectural projects polishing flat bar and balustrade uprights. The Commercial Team have recently been negotiating the polishing of a 60 tonne order of stainless steel flat bar to be polished to a 1K Finish under EN 10088-2. This fine abrasive finish not only removes any surface scale but also the majority of material defects in the 6 mtr lengths, as well as providing a surface finish suitable to help combat corrosion contamination.
The project itself is an incredibly high end fencing arrangement in Europe and has been designed to offer both strength and stunning good looks!
For more information on how we can help you with your architectural project contact our Commercial Team who will be happy to advise on the right finish for the right environment. Remember, Stainless Steel has a fantastic life-cycle and is heavily recycled so it's an amazing material to work with for architectural applications,
