Why 316 Stainless Steel?

316 stainless steel is a higher grade stainless. It is suitable for external corrosive environments such as near the ocean or around swimming pools. 

The higher the grade of stainless steel the better it can withstand better in corrosive elements. Typically in external environments such as around pool areas, near coastal environments, on external balconies and patios etc, 316 stainless steel is preferred as it requires less maintenance. 

 If taken care of correctly, stainless steel is built to last in any external environment.
