We generally cut stainless steel to 8-10mm thick but it can be cut to 16mm in special circumstances.
Stainless steel creates a fantastic look that is not achieved by any other material; it gives a reflection and mirrors shapes and light beautifully.
Stainless steel has a high resistance to corrosion. This resistance to attack from the elements is due to the naturally occurring chromium-rich oxide film formed on the surface of the steel. The film, although very thin is rapidly self-repairing in the presence of oxygen, and damage by abrasion, cutting or machining, which is why this material is so effective against rusting and wear and tear.
