Powder Coated Steel – Advantages

DURABLE: WORRIED ABOUT DAMAGE? IT’S NO BIG DEAL.

Upkeep of bathroom stalls can be exceptionally expensive, especially in an environment that not only receives high traffic, but also high abuse. The durability of a powder coated steel gives owners the opportunity to restore their materials to better condition.

VANDAL-RESISTANT: ROWDY USERS ARE NO MATCH.

For those areas that are more openly impacted by graffiti as a form of vandalism, there is a special option to add an anti-graffiti powder coating. This anti-graffiti coating allows for specialized graffiti removers to be used in an effort to eliminate marks/ghosting.

CORROSION-RESISTANT: RUST WILL NEVER BE A PROBLEM AGAIN.

Metal and steel typically have a negative association with being susceptible to rust. Previously, powder coated steel fell victim to these situations when placed in high-moisture areas. However, steel used in more recently manufactured powder coated stalls is galvanized — or given a protective coating of zinc. Zinc carries a remarkable resistance to rust, and this galvanisation provides similar benefits to powder coated steel toiet stalls.

FIRE-RESISTANT: ONE OF THE BEST IN THE INDUSTRY.

Powder coated steel restroom stalls are ASTM E84 compliant, and graded CLASS A for their fire resistance. This characteristic of being fireproof means that harmful smoke will not be emitted when exposed to intense levels of heat or flames. CLASS A is the highest fire rating achievable.

ENVIRONMENTALLY RESPONSIBLE: GOOD FOR THE PLANET, AND GOOD FOR PROJECTS.

With a 50% recycled content, using PCS is not only efficient, but also beneficial in a number of ways. The process of powder coating minimizes waste and Utilization of powder coated steel in a project can assist those looking to become LEED-certified.

LOW-COST: THE BEST BANG FOR THE BUCK.

Finding a maaterial that is environmentally friendly, resilient, fire-resistant, or low cost is not difficult — however, finding one that possesses all of those characteristics is somewhat difficult. To top it off, all of these perks come at a price that is friendly for those looking to keep their project costs low. On average, powder coated steel costs roughly half the price of the more premium solid plastic, solid phenolic, and stainless steel.

FAST: FOR THOSE WITH DIFFICULT PROJECT TIMING, POWDER COATED STEEL LEAD TIMES ARE FASTER THAN MOST OTHER MATERIALS.

Powder coated steel has a speedy turnaround time. Those with the tightest of time constraints can utilize the listed colors on our website and have a lead time of two to three days.
