Edge-Dressing: For Safer Strip Coil
In every Industrial project, safety is of paramount importance. BS Stainless are committed to improving health and safety across the spectrum of industry and, as part of this commitment, we are proud to supply stainless steel strip coil products that have undergone an edge-dressing process.
Stainless steel strip coil is extensively used in the construction industry for a variety of applications. BS Stainless have always looked at ways of improving the product and edge-dressing, which dramatically improves safety, is one of the most important factors in creating the versatile coil.
During the production of steel strip and coil, the material gains a sharp edge which is also known as a burr. This edge presents a clear safety hazard and also makes the material thicker and more difficult to work, hindering the welding process and creating unnecessary expense by lengthening the time required to successfully complete the work. Strip and coil with this edge must be handled extremely carefully and its inferior quality can lead to problems further down the line, costing the owner time and money in repairs.
Our dedicated premises in Preston has benefited from heavy investment in edge dressing and deburring technology. We now possess multiple state-of-the-art machines capable of producing large quantities of stainless steel strip and coil with a safe, high-quality burr-free edge and can also apply the technology to Aluzinc products. Specialising in particularly thin material from 5mm down to a tiny 0.3mm, we can also supply the product with a comprehensive selection of edge shapes including square, round and contoured, offering true versatility.
BS Stainless are major international suppliers of burr-free stainless steel strip and coil, exporting the material to a number of countries worldwide. Within the United Kingdom, we are the market leader of this essential material.
Our precision-slit stainless steel strip coil is widely used within the construction, heating, catering, automotive and ventilation industries, as well as heavy industry such as gas and oil extraction.
