Marine Grade Stainless Steel
To ensure the long life of your outdoor furniture we use marine grade 316 stainless steel for all of our outdoor furniture. We are one of the few outdoor furniture companies who use Marine Grade 316 Stainless Steel. This means our tables will be significantly outlast our competitors who only offer 304 stainless steel and powder coated aluminium. This strong and durable ferrous alloy is highly resistant to staining and corrosion. A testament to its strength and long lasting qualities is that 316 grade stainless steel is the 1st choice among boat owners and builders alike to withstand this highly corrosive environment.
Marine grade 316 stainless steel is up to 600 times more corrosion resistant than galvanized mild steel and twice as effective at avoiding corrosion as 304 grade stainless steel.
At Le Bench we pride ourselves on producing quality furniture that will outlast all others. It is for this reason that 316 stainless steel is our first and only choice for outdoor environments.
What this means for our customers…
Instead of replacing your outdoor 304 grade stainless steel furniture every 5 – 10 years because or corrosion and staining, you can expect a life of over 50 years for the 316 stainless steel frame MINIMUM! Our product is also more resistant to staining and tarnishing. What this means is that our furniture goes the distance, wherever you live, no matter what environment you subject it to. It will save you money and hold its resale value. This allows us to offer a 25 year structural warranty on our fully welded table and bench seat frames, even near the coast.
Not just the frame…..
We also use marine grade 316 stainless steel for all our screws, chain, ice buckets, bolts and any other metal item you find on our furniture.
