Do you sell steel sheets?

Steel is what we do! We sell a huge range of steel sheets including galvanized steel, big bright spangled steel, cold reduced steel, hot rolled steel, hot rolled, pickled and oiled steel, rusted hot rolled steel and loads more. You can browse our website, or email [email protected] to speak to our sales team for advice.

Does galvanized steel rust?

Galvanized steel does not rust, the process of galvanising applies a protective zinc coating to the steel to protect it.

Is Steel Magnetic?

Yes, all of our mild steel sheets are magnetic. Some stainless steel is not magnetic due to the treatment process used in making it. Austenitic stainless steel is usually used industrially and is not magnetic, however ferritic stainless steel is mainly used in home appliances like fridges and is magnetic.

Do you sell magnetic boards?

We sell a variety of custom made sizes of magnetic boards. Our magnetic boards are available in steel or white finishes. For a sleeker look select our glass white effect magnetic boards that come with chrome effect fittings, pens, magnets and an eraser. Contact us with your requirements.

How would you attach magnetic boards to the wall?

Hanging a magnetic board in your home or office space will usually require a drill, wall plugs and screws. The type and length of screws and plugs you use will depend on what the wall is made of.
