Are stainless steel doors and frames available?

Yes, stainless steel doors and frames are available.

  1. Door Construction:
    • LS-Series:
      • Visible edge seams
      • Door construction similar to the L-Series
    • LSW-Series:
      • Seamless with welded edge seams
      • Door construction similar to the LW-Series
  2. Frame Construction:
    • FS-Series:
      • Face welded corners
      • Frame construction similar to F-Series
    • MS-Series
      • Face welded corners
      • Frame construction similar to MU-Series
    • KS-Series
      • Knock Down(KD) corner construction 
      • Frame construction similar to K-Series

Steel options are as follows:

  1. 304 stainless steel - basic chromium-nickel stainless steel that offers excellent resistance to corrosion and weather. 304 stainless steel is the most commonly used alloy.
  2. 316 stainless steel - a premium stainless steel containing an added element, molybdenum. 316 alloy offers corrosion resistance in heavy chemical or wet industrial atmospheres, and marine or coastal environments.
  3. Surface Finish - all exposed surfaces are finished to the following options:
    • #4 Brushed Satin (this is a match for 32D hardware finish) somewhat low reflectivity 
    • #2 Mill finish

Door and Frame components - All internal components are made from Stainless Steel.

CAUTION Galvanic Corrosion. This is a risk when dissimilar metals are in direct contact. To understand the reaction you need to know stainless steel's position on a galvanic series chart, and the relative mass of each metal in direct contact. On the galvanic series chart, stainless steel is a more noble metal than aluminum, mild steel, copper or brass.

Example: If mild steel was used for hardware reinforcements inside stainless steel doors and frames, galvanic corrosion would occur at the contact points and corrode the doors and frames from the inside out.
