Enhancing the outdoor spaces of a Washington home, our Miami Round cable railing system mounted on cement brings excellent stainless steel accents that unify both projects.
To ensure the longevity of your stainless steel railing, we recommend including our passivating kit in your purchase. Although stainless steel is naturally resistant to corrosion, exposure to weather or salty conditions can cause surface buildup over time. Our passivation solution or a stainless polish can effectively prevent such issues.
Our Miami cable fittings are crafted from 316 stainless steel, which contains a higher concentration of molybdenum. This alloy provides exceptional resistance to pitting and corrosion that may occur from stress, scratches, or other blemishes. While 316 stainless steel is highly resistant to corrosion, it is not entirely corrosion-proof. However, our passivation solution ensures optimal protection by cleaning and sealing the railing immediately after installation.
The frequency of passivation application depends on the climate and conditions of your area. Harsher climates may require a yearly or semi-annual application, while milder climates may only need an annual or biennial application. Applying the passivation kit is a simple process. Just spray the railing with the solution for 15-30 minutes at room temperature, then rinse the surface with clean water. Finally, wipe the surface dry with a clean cloth or appropriate absorbent medium.
By following these maintenance steps, you can ensure the long-lasting beauty and durability of your stainless steel cable railing system.
