Stainless Metals & Alloys Ltd and UKF Stainless Ltd are delighted to have been selected as significant material suppliers on the construction of Portstewart Promenade’s coastal hand-railing.
For such a project, the material had to be capable of withstanding the chloride-rich atmosphere, while being long-lasting, easy-to-maintain and affordable. The companies selected Grade 316/L plate for its excellent corrosion resistance and the mirror polish tube for its added protection and aesthetics.
Located along Northern Ireland’s famous and incredibly beautiful Causeway Coast, Portstewart is a popular location for tourists and visitors and has recently seen an increase in footfall due to the region being a popular Game of Thrones filming location.
This rise in tourism is expected to continue, with neighbouring resort town Portrush being the venue for the 2019 British Open Golf Tournament.
The UKF Group have been providing high-quality service to the UK and European Manufacturing Industries for over 20 years.
The Group’s portfolio includes UKF Stainless, The Joint Perforating Company, Ferrari Stainless and Alloys, and Stainless Metals & Alloys. Through these brands, the UKF Group supplies stainless steel and aluminium materials into various industries, including automotive, pharmaceutical, architectural, food & beverage, and sanitation.
