STAINLESS STEEL SHEET: FROM KITCHEN EQUIPMENT TO SKYSCRAPERS

Stainless steel sheet refers to thin metal sheets of stainless steel up to 6mm thick. Pieces thicker than 6 mm (0.25 in) are generally referred to as plate, though this definition can vary from supplier to supplier and also in different countries.

A MULTITUDE OF USES

Stainless steel sheet products are used in both consumer and industrial applications where the corrosion resistance, heat resistance or design characteristics of stainless steel are required. Sheet is often used in the manufacture of factory equipment and assembly line machinery for fabricating other products, and because of its attractive appearance, it is also used for its aesthetic appeal in construction.

Often seen in lift doors and on escalators, stainless steel sheet’s excellent corrosion resistance makes it an ideal material for creating exterior decorations and ornaments on buildings. Corrosion resistance is also a major reason why stainless sheet is widely used for chemical processing, water treatment and bre

Choosing the Right Decorative Jar

Are you thinking of creating your own jams or other preserves? Want to make a batch and gift them to friends and familty? Then why not source some high-quality decorative jars to make your gift that extra bit special.

From round Um jars to faceted and hexagonal jars, there's a world of choice out there. Wavy jars (for the extra bit of kookiness), jars with beautiful patterned lids , from white, gold, silver, or black to red gingham- the choices and combinations are endless!

And once you've selected the right decorative jar, take some time to think about labelling. Do you go with handwritten labels for that personal, homemade touch? Or do you want to add a small illustration, message or fun branding? Labels can easily be printed with most home printers, or if you're making a huge batch, you could even get a run done at your local printers.

Add a bit of character to your jams with items from your local craft shop. You'll find all sorts to get your imagination running wild, from glitte

Sash Window Cords: Do Yours Need Replacing?

by mikeneptune6 months ago

This month we have a guest post from our friends at Sash Window Restorations in Brighton, specialists in repair, restoring and manufaturing from scratch beautiful sash windows from their Brighton workshop:

Everyone that has original period sash windows will at some point need to (or have needed to) replace the cords which hold the windows in place. The fact they should need replacing is perfectly understandable, as the braided cotton typically used for the original cords is organic matter after all, and thus cannot be expected to last forever – you may find that the ropes you’re replacing are 100 years old or more.

 

Inevitable demise

When a sash window is raised or lowered, the weights, attached to the sash by the cording, travel up and down in the hollow channels either side of the window, allowing the windows to stay open without any additional props or stays. It’s a functional system that’s served us well for centuries now with little change to the mechanics, but with anything

The Link Between Social Media and Anti-Social Behaviour

by mikeneptune6 months ago

We’ve all done it. You’ve been working hard for months on end and are getting increasingly more excited about your upcoming holiday; so excited, in fact, that you cannot help but shout about it from the (social media) rooftops! And why not? Facebook, Twitter and the like are not just there for sharing cat videos, crazy news stories and political opinions – they’re there to share events that you’re excited about (and for showing off, let’s face it...)

 

Well, unfortunately there is in fact a very good reason to think twice before announcing things like holidays and breaks away on social media: burglars. Unless you’re very careful about whom you allow access to your pages and are sufficiently tech-savvy to make sure your security settings mean that only your close friends have access to your most sensitive information and posts, you could be in danger of unwittingly indicating to unscrupulous individuals exactly when and where you’re going to be (or not going to be i.e. at home).
