What Are The Environmental Benefits Of Stainless Steel?

Stainless steel is one of the most popular materials used in the industrial market. It is strong, versatile, durable, corrosion resistant and requires no maintenance. Besides this, it is an environmentally friendly material to work with. To know more, let us check out the environmental benefits of Stainless Steel.

  • Fewer carbon emissions on site Most steel profiles are customized and shaped cut to size in the factory. The pre-engineered profiles are then efficiently assembled once they arrive on the job site, either with field welds or with mechanical fasteners. This results in less field labor and fewer carbon emissions on-site, as there is little to no cutting or waste. Construction times and the associated energy usage are reduced.
  • Energy efficient Steel framing is a perfect choice for facades. Due to better insulation and the ability for the facade to the system to remove moisture quickly, building interiors are warmer in cold weather, cooler in hot weather, and moisture free in wet climates. This ultimately puts less of a strain on our fuel reserves of oil, gas, and coal.
  • Natural ventilation Due to long span capability, stainless steel sashes are used for large windows that enable natural ventilation. Fresh air or natural daylight is an element that helps to keep people healthier and feel better, thus reducing the need for mechanically introduced ventilation.
  • Increased durability Stainless steel products arewell suited for projects that require resistance to natural forces, such as high winds, moisture, and sea salt. It is very durable in such cases and does not succumb to rust easily. Also, it is more fire-resistant than any other metal building components.
  • Repurposing As per the World Steel Association, steel is the world most recyclable material. Being able to repurpose or remanufacture stainless steel over and over again leads to less depletion of our natural environment. The result is significant savings on energy costs and emissions in the manufacturing of new products without compromising on strength whenrecycled. Furthermore, recycling ensures that a lot of metal does not end up in landfills.

Going green is a choice that customers continue to make throughout the world today. It is an easier decision to make with the increasing rise in the price of fuel and energy. Keeping this in mind, Rhinox the leading stainless-steel pipe fittings, tubes and gas pipeline supplier in the USA offers high-quality, highly sustainable products designed to meet the evolving needs of customers across the world. So, its about time to choose a product that ensures quality along with enhancing the health of the environment. For more information about Rhinox, visit: www.rhinoxusa.com.
