The Nanocoast range: Hard-wearing no matter the weather!

Published on 10 April, 2018


If you’re looking for door hardware that proves to be hard-wearing no matter the weather than look no further than our Nanocoast range!

Our Nanocoast stainless steel door hardware is designed to combat corrosion and discoloration – often a result of being exposed to the likes of water, salt and acid rain.

Rusting and pitting can not only affect the appearance and quality of door hardware, but can affect its operational performance too.

Stainless Steel Coating

Using 316 grade stainless steel, Nanocoast products are designed with the perfect material to resist rust and corrosion. They are put through vigorous testing to make sure the door hardware can withstand harsh environments, specifically areas with a high sea salt concentrated air, acid rain and industrially polluted areas.

As part of the Nanocoast range, our products will continue to function and look at their best no matter what environments you put them in. In fact we are so confident about the quality of our Nanocoast range that each product comes with a LIFETIME coating guarantee.


Why Have We Used 316 Grade Stainless Steel?

We believe 316 grade stainless steel is the perfect grade of stainless steel to use at the coast for the cost price versus performance of the products. 316 grade is an austenitic stainless steel, containing 18% chromium and 10% nickel, and also a low carbon content. Due to this it has an excellent corrosion resistance in a wide variety of environments, and has good resistance to oxidation.  It also offers a higher resistance to solutions such as sulfuric acid and chlorides at high temperatures


Salt Spray Testing

ALL Nanocoast products are salt spray tested to ASTM B117 standards for at least 2,000 hours – to ensure corrosion resistance quality.

This makes the Nanocoast range the perfect choice for areas within a 25 mile radius of the coast or within 5 miles of industrial areas – offering not only maximum security but also maximum protection.
