Extra Strength Where it's Needed Most

One of the most important qualities of stainless steel is its extraordinary strength, which makes it one of the most common construction materials. It is also highly resistant to the damaging effects of corrosion. When conditions get really intensive, as has been seen recently with hurricanes Harvey and Irma, the need for strength and durability becomes even greater; BS Stainless supply a large and diverse selection of components designed to provide that extra line of defence.

Stainless Steel Banding

A picture is worth a thousand words and the recent image of a traffic signal ripped from its moorings yet with signs intact said it all: what held the sign firmly in place was of course stainless steel banding. Another picture of a failed stainless steel tank showed that, when you’re dealing with hurricanes, it pays to add extra support.

BS Stainless offer the solution in the form of wider bands and bigger wing seals. The commonly-used size is 19mm (¾”) but we produce and supply banding in 25mm, 40mm and 50mm sizes along with the matching wing seals. We can also increase the thickness of the band from 0.5mm up to 0.8mm.

Springs

The mighty spring is becoming widely used in preference to standard expansion springs and delivers a massive increase in strength and durability. To give the ultimate protection, you can take it a step further with BS Stainless and use our powerful ultra springs. These can be used along with larger widths bands such as 40mm or 50mm.

Tying Wire

High winds can cause all sorts of damage and often carry objects miles from their original locations. Stone wool and mineral wool are particularly hard-hit victims of this but lacing wire can be purchased from BS Stainless with a size increase from 1mm (20swg) to 1.2mm (18 swg) or even as high as 1.6mm ( 16 swg).

Corrugated Sheets

You can’t control when and how hard the wind blows but what you DO have a certain amount of control over is the direction and path it takes. Corrugated sheets can be used to provide wind deflection, helping to direct its damaging force away from vulnerable areas. Secured using rivets, screws or banding.

Fixings

Selecting the right grade is essential. 410 Tek screws also known as self drillers or Tek screws are commonly used across North America but are at risk of corrosion and could fail during a heavy storm. Duplex self-tapping screws are a much more reliable solution. Or as an alternative if self drilling screws are required use bimetallic for better corrosion resistance and strength.

Toggles

Adjustable eccentric toggles are widely used offshore where winds often reach speeds much faster than those on land. With a strength of 3000 N/mm2, they are also ideal for onshore usage when extra protection is required. The performance is designed to meet the most rigorous of weather and standards such as NORSOK.

Don't leave anything to chance: purchase all these components and more from BS Stainless.
