Mpumalanga Balustrade Installations

Two similar balustrade jobs were completed in Secunda and Ermelo.  These clients opted for the stainless steel balustrade options.

Even though stainless steel is a bit more pricey than the mild steel option, its really better in the long run, as it is much more durable and long lasting. Stainless steel does not rust or corrode and does not require any maintenance after it has been installed. Read more!

Stainless Steel Washing Line Nelspruit, Mpumlanga

Stainless Steel Washing Line

Here at DuraTrend Specialized Metal Fabrication, no job is too big or too small for us. We recently installed stainless steel balustrades for a customer and also added a stainless steel washing line with cable inserts. These stainless steel washing lines work great as they are not only more aesthetically appealing than your standard washing lines, but being stainless steel, they are also rust resistant, making it the ideal material to use outdoors.

Swimming Pool Entry Stairs

Stainless Steel Swimming Pool Stairs

Swimming Pool Entry Stairs

Duratrend designed and installed these stainless steel swimming pool stairs in Shandon Estate just outside of Nelspruit, Mpumalanga. These stainless steel entry stairs allow for easy access in and out of this splash pool. Our non slip step design reduces accidents even when your feet are wet. The non-corrosive properties of stainless steel make it the perfect material to use in and around water environments such swimming pools and outdoor patios where the materials are exposed to the elements.

Manufacturing Process of Stainless Steel

Stainless steel production starts with iron ore, carbon, nickel, silicon and chromium. All of the elements are found in the earth.  Stainless steel manufacturing begins with melting the steel which is made up of all of these elements.

Giant furnaces are used to smelt all the ingredients together during stainless steel manufacturing. The process can take anywhere between 8-12 hours of intense heat. Once the elements are all melted together and the heating process is complete the mixture is poured into casts and moulds. Read more!
