Stainless Steel - 100 Not Out!100 years of Stainless Steel

2013 marks 100 years since stainless steel was discovered in Sheffield. The BSSA have selected 50 applications and features that demonstrate how stainless steel has influenced our lives so far.



Lighting the Way

Road studs are now being replaced by solar versions to provide better lighting, thereby making roads safer and said to reduce casualties by 70%. The top covers for these road studs are made from marine grade stainless steel. The material was chosen because of its high strength and corrosion resistance so the studs can endure the harsh and wet weather conditions often seen on UK roads.

With low maintenance and low power consumption they are lighting the way for thousands of drivers throughout the UK.
