Why Use Stainless Steel Screws and Nuts in Furniture Construction

Last Updated on March 13, 2023 by Marsh Fasteners

Stainless steel screws and stainless steel nuts are always an excellent choice when you are involved in a project that will be subject to humid or corrosive environments. This is especially critical in furniture construction as the dependability of the end products is paramount, whether you manufacture chairs or an entire range of office furniture. With regular, untreated metals, you are limited to what you can build and where you can operate from in terms of climatic conditions, harsh environments and so on.

Stainless Steel Nuts and Screws are Inherently Corrosive-Resistant

When compared to other products that claim corrosion resistance, nothing quite beats the effectiveness of stainless steel when constructing furniture that can withstand rapid wear and tear, moisture corrosion over time and so forth. The reason is due to the inherent properties of stainless steel, being a material that is not simply coated with a protective layer but in itself is an entirely resistant material. This, coupled with appropriate care and maintenance, offers far more durability in humid and corrosive environments for all kinds of furniture where metal is used.

Nonetheless, it is important to remember that stainless steel is not anti-corrosive thus you still need to maintain stainless steel screws and stainless steel nuts to enjoy the full benefits of the metal.

Further Benefits of Stainless Steel Screws and Nuts

  • Stainless steel is less magnetic than regular metals, meaning that you don’t have to worry about magnetic disturbance. This may be a factor where furniture is used in a laboratory setting or where there is sensitive equipment.
  • Stainless steel bolts and marine fasteners are self-repairing in a sense, in that they form an invisible chromium-oxide layer. This layer protects the metal from corrosion and forms wherever the steel is scratched, ensuring extra protection. This means that furniture for marine crafts, yachts, outdoor furniture especially near coastal lines and the likes, can be reinforced by using these fasteners.
