Why choose a stainless steel home lift ?
Reducing the environmental impact of our products by choosing eco-friendly materials has become essential today.
Stainless steel perfectly meets this expectation. Its basic chemical composition (iron, carbon and chromium) gives it specific properties, more advantageous compared to other alloys. It is recyclable, making it a perfect asset to preserve the planet.
Its major advantage: high resistance to oxidation
It is mainly due to the presence of chromium which forms a thin layer of chromium oxide on the surface of the steel, in contact with the oxygen in the atmosphere.
This thin layer gives stainless steel its corrosion resistance properties.
Its other advantage is mainly aesthetic.
Stainless steel is the universal material favoured by architects thanks to the different texture that it is possible to give it. It also has a very long lifetime.
Stainless steel is also an easy-to-clean material, making it the perfect coating for high-traffic areas, such as a home lift.
