Strength There are several stainless steel alloys, but the types used for industrial applications are prized for their ultimate tensile, compressive, and yield strength. Since stainless steel workbenches are strong and durable, they can sustain heavy loads. This is especially advantageous for applications requiring the placement or storage of heavy castings, machine and automotive parts, and metal stock. If you need a heavy-duty table for assembly, material handling, or other activities that require a work surface with high resistance to wear-and-tear, stainless steel is an excellent choice.
Durability Stainless steel is known for its corrosion resistance, which stems from a minimum chromium content of 10.5%. This prevents the iron in the alloy from rusting, which allows the material to maintain its structural integrity and strength in a wide variety of environments, including those that are humid. Stainless steel also has significant impact resistance, so if you drop it, drop a heavy object on it, or a forklift operator collides with it, it remains functional.
Easy to Clean Stainless steel is easier to clean than many other materials. This means you can maintain cleanliness standards in commercial kitchens and industrial workspaces using stainless steel work tables. Dirt, grime, and chemical residues don’t adhere as well to a stainless steel workbench, so you can scrub these away using general household cleaning products. This is also why flat-top stainless steel products are suitable for medical facilities.
