As the name suggests, this long-term favourite of the metal world is resistant to rusting, corrosion and (you guessed it) staining. It gained its title around the time it was invented, at the beginning of the 20th century. Back then, one of the most common uses for the metal was the production of cutlery, where hygiene was (and still is) obviously a must. These days, stainless steel is used for all manner of varying needs, but the name has stood the test of time (and it is still the most popular metal for making cutlery). Unlike the carbon steel (also known as mild steel) used as a basis for many metals, stainless steel has a minimum of 10.5% of chromium content by mass – and often contains up to 20%.

As the name suggests, this long-term favourite of the metal world is resistant to rusting, corrosion and (you guessed it) staining. It gained its title around the time it was invented, at the beginning of the 20th century. Back then, one of the most common uses for the metal was the production of cutlery, where hygiene was (and still is) obviously a must. These days, stainless steel is used for all manner of varying needs, but the name has stood the test of time (and it is still the most popular metal for making cutlery).

Unlike the carbon steel (also known as mild steel) used as a basis for many metals, stainless steel has a minimum of 10.5% of chromium content by mass – and often contains up to 20%. Our stainless steel sheeting comes in a huge range of thicknesses to suit your project and we offer two types: 304 and 316 stainless steel.

Prices are competitive and we have lots of options. Choose the size you need, or take advantage of our free cutting service and have it trimmed down to precisely the amount that’s right for you. There’s also a choice of two finishes: dull polished or mill finished. Mill finished steel doesn’t have the “brushed” effect that’s commonly associated with this type of metal. If that’s what you’re looking for, select dull polished stainless steel sheet from the box above; this metal has been specially treated to give it the fine-line, satin-textured pattern that can often be seen on jewellery, domestic appliances and watches.

Good for: Industrial equipment, hardware, catering machinery and furniture, food processing, cookware, cutlery, crockery, household uses, surgical instruments, construction materials, tools, shipbuilding, manufacturing and many more. Brushed stainless steel plate (or dull-polished) is popular for household sockets, sink splash-backs and other stylish features.

How it’s made: Steel is one of the most refined metals that can be taken from iron. It’s also 100% recyclable; experts reckon that in the future, the vast majority of the steel products we use will be manufactured from recycled steel items. Stainless steel is an alloy, which is a mixture of more than one metal. It is blended with at least 10.5% chromium (also known as chrome), which gives it tough protection against oxidisation (rust).

What our customers say about us:

“A great range of products.” –Marc, Trustpilot

“Excellent advice followed by excellent service.” – Fiona, Trustpilot

Random Fact: The record for the largest stainless steel cooking spoon was set in Marktoberdorf, Germany in 2006. Measuring in at a lengthy 10.01 metres, the spoon was manufactured by the Rösle GmbH & Co. KG.

Metal kick plates from Buy Metal Online are designed to protect doors in high-traffic areas. They provide a tough, resistant surface where feet, trolleys, dollies and carts can open doors without marking or damaging them. Metal kick plates attach to the bottom of doors, where you would kick, push or bang a door open when you’re working quickly or carrying loads. It’s a small but important way to protect the building and its doors from damage.

Key qualities of metal kick plates

Metal kick plates are manufactured to a high standard from a range of different metals including aluminium and steel. Our metal kick plates are strong and durable with key qualities including:
  1. Protection: Metal kick plates are affixed to the bottom of any door to protect it from impact. Ideal in warehouses, factories, schools, hospitals and anywhere doors often get marked or damaged.

  2. Flexible: Metal kick plates can be cut to any size or shape and be used for protective or decorative purposes.

  3. Low maintenance: Screw or glue in place, keep clean and easily wipe off or polish out any marks or scratches. They are simple and very low maintenance.

  4. Cost-effective: Make doors last longer with a simple metal sheet and keep them looking good at the same time.

How to use metal kick plates

Metal kick plates can be attached to the bottom of a door to enable hands-free opening with feet or allow doors to be opened with material handling equipment like dollies and trolleys. These are ideal for businesses or institutions where doors tend to get marked or damaged. They are also suitable for use in the home. The metal plates absorb the brunt of the impact, extending the lifespan of your doors and reducing the need for repairs or repainting. These kick plates are also easy to clean compared to challenging scuffs, scratches or dents in doors. All you need to do is prepare the surface of the door, drill holes in the kick plate where required and screw it into place. You can also bond them onto the door with a strong adhesive if you prefer.
