Stainless Steel Sheet Metal and Fabrication Services for Melbourne Commercial Kitchens

29 June 2020

Companies that offer great, high-quality stainless steel sheet metal and fabrication services are usually hired by commercial kitchens here in Melbourne due to various reasons. Their services are integral for business owners since commercial kitchens need certain equipment and furniture that are not readily available in the market. They are also hired since they have adequate knowledge and experience in fabricating products out of food-grade stainless steel sheet metal.

Commercial kitchens must have benchtops, prep tables, kitchen cupboards and shelving, kitchen sink, dish tables, beverages tables, exhaust hoods, and other pieces of furniture that can assist and support meal preparation and food storage. Ovens, cooking ranges, deep fryers, grills, toasters, grills, and other equipment are also needed to produce different types of meals. All these equipment and furniture can be fabricated out of food-grade stainless steel, which can only be done by a metal fabrication company.

All Available Fabrication Services

Stainless steel is a material that boasts several properties. It is widely known for its resistance against corrosion and extreme temperatures. Its high cryogenic toughness helps the material endure freezing temperatures. It also has great strength, hardness, and ductility. Another great thing about stainless steel is that it has a high work hardening rate and can be maintained easily.

Metal fabrication companies take advantage of the properties of stainless steel by creating commercial kitchen equipment and furniture. They would typically form, punch, shear, bend, weld, roll, or drill stainless steel sheet metal into useful kitchen tools and products first. Afterward, they will subject these commercial kitchen products under brushing, anodising, or powder-coating processes for the products’ finish.

Almost all fabrication jobs that companies take are unique as different business owners have different sets of preferences and needs. Luckily, most of these fabrication companies have adequate knowledge and experience to readily create products out of stainless steel without sacrificing value and quality.

304 Food-Grade Stainless Steel

When it comes to fabricating commercial kitchen equipment and furniture, most metal fabrication companies would use 304 food-grade stainless steel. This type of stainless steel contains around 16% to 24% of chromium and up to 35% of nickel, which helps it withstand a wide range of atmospheric environments and corrosive products. 304 food-grade stainless steel also exhibits high tensile strength and smooth surface, making all products out of this material appear classy and clean all the time.

Speaking of clean surfaces, products that are made from 304 food-grade stainless steel can handle multiple washes by the application of certain detergents and chemical cleaners without ruining and damaging their surface. This type of stainless steel is also used in commercial kitchen equipment and furniture since it is not easily affected by hot or cold temperatures. Moreover, equipment and furniture out of 304 food-grade stainless steel are expected to last for a long time,
