One of the newest design ideas for stainless steel, is stainless steel backsplash tiles. It’s an ultra-modern, polished look that adds a bit of creativity to your kitchen or bathroom. Naturally, stainless steel tiles are the perfect accent to stainless steel appliances and accessories.

They also come in a variety of designs like squares or subway tiles. Square tiles can be found in different sizes and finishes like 4 x 4 inch or 12-inch tiles. They can also be installed in different directions for a unique, patterned look.

Although subway tiles have long been used as a classic decorative accent to kitchen back splashes, stainless steel back splash tiles can now be added to achieve a sleek contemporary look. They can also be installed as a full wall or used to combination with a glass shower enclosure to reflect light within a room.

Micro tiles also come in different sizes, sparkling shapes, and designs. They allow you to change the color scheme of a room without having to replace the tiles. Stainless steel tiles can be added as a highlight to cut costs, and create beautiful highlights.

Stainless Steel Sheet Metal Uses

 :: Posted by MelW on 04-16-2013

Stainless Steel Sheet Metal at its very basic is metal formed into thin, flat pieces. From this point, it can be bent, shaped, and cut into different shapes and sizes. We use metal for a variety of things like gas grills, napkin and mail holders, coat racks, and barbeque grills. The possibilities are endless.

Sheet metal can also come in varying thicknesses – thin sheet metal is considered foil or leaf: thicker pieces of metal are known as plate. A gauge is used to measure the thickness of the metal and the greater the gauge number, the thinner the metal. The most commonly used sheet metal runs anywhere from about 30 gauge to 8 gauge. Ferrous and nonferrouse metals have different gauges-copeer and alunimum being two examples.

Sheet metal of iron has a high magnetic permeability and was once used in calvary’s plate armor, but can also be found in the body of cars, airplane wings, and building roofs. It can also be used to make everyday items like cookie sheets and kitchen back splashes. Starland Metals specializes in stainless steel sheet metals and offers top-quality products with the most competitive prices on the market!

Also, be sure to check that the steel is bonded to the bottom of the  grill. The type of cookware you choose to use with your stainless steel grill also makes a difference in the quality of your foods
