HARDWARE& SECURITY Weathering the storm »»If your customer’s door viewers are looking a little under the weather, or they live in a coastal or particularly polluted area and find rust and corrosion is ruining their door hardware, why not look at UAP’s range of products that can withstand the elements like no other on the market. ‘UAP’s range of products can withstand the elements like no other on the market’ Nanocoast technology is available from UAP, the door and window security specialists and gives products the ability to stand up to harsh environments. Manufactured from 304 grade stainless steel; the perfect material and grading to supply rust free, corrosion resistant door furniture, Nanocoast products are put through vigorous testing to make sure it can hold up in high sea salt concentrated air, acid rain and general industrially polluted areas and each product has been salt spray tested to ASTM B117, a minimum of 2,000 hours. Mark Rushton from UAP comments: “All the Nanocoast products are made from 304 grade stainless steel, which contains only 18% chromium and 8% nickel, as well as having low carbon content. The reason we have chosen this grade is the cost to material effectiveness comparative. Upgrading to a 316 grade stainless is considerably more expensive and is often only used when you need a higher resistance to solutions such as sulphuric acid and chlorides at high temperatures.” Mark continues: “Alternatively, downgrading to a 200 grade stainless steel will ensure an even cheaper product, but in turn will jeopardise the corrosion busting qualities. A 200 grade stainless steel product would carry lower nickel content and the replacement would come from magnese, which is much less effective at resisting rust and acid wear.” Visit or call 0161 796 7268 WE’RE EXPECTING A NEW ADDITION TO THE DYNAMIC FAMILY.....
