Why Use Stainless Steel?

Stainless steel plaques and signs are extremely durable and robust.   As a result, they are often used in areas and applications that are subject to high risk of corrosion and environmental degradation.

Some common places for stainless steel signs would be in marine environments and roads and highway signage and artwork.  Stainless steel is also commonly used in interpretive signage and is ideal for trail markers, way-finding and educational plaques and signage.  This is more common in remote locations due to stainless steels extremely robust nature and ability to withstand abuse.

Our engraved signs and labels are paint-filled after engraving.

As stainless steel is tough to machine, light cuts and multiple passes are usually needed – hence this is more costly than other materials.

What Types Of Steel?

We offer a range of high quality stainless steel, using either 316 (Marine) Grade or 304 Grade with a standard No.4 finish (brushed) although we also offer bright and mirror finishes if required.

316 Marine Grade steel is especially suited for Australian conditions.

Stainless steel comes in a natural, silver colour only however some customers require their stainless steel signage to have a different coloured background.

If this is required we outsource the powder coating for this process to a local and trusted provider.  We would usually engrave the plates first, then have them powder coated and then finish off the paint filling as the final step.
