The benefits of stainless steel wire

But why choose stainless steel over other materials, such as galvanized wire? There are several benefits to using stainless steel for your swaged wire.

  1. Durability: Stainless steel is known for its strength and durability. It is resistant to corrosion and rust, making it a long-lasting option for outdoor use. This is especially important for shade sails, which are exposed to the elements and can experience a lot of wear and tear.
  2. Aesthetics: Stainless steel has a sleek and modern appearance, making it an attractive choice for those looking to add a professional finish to their shade sail.
  3. Easy to clean: Stainless steel is easy to clean and maintain, making it a low-maintenance option for those looking to keep their shade sail looking its best.

But why choose 7×7 316 stainless steel for your swages? 7×7 316 stainless steel is a type of wire that is made up of 7 strands, each containing 7 wires. This creates a strong and flexible wire that is ideal for use in hand swaging. The “316” in the name refers to the type of stainless steel, which is known for its superior corrosion resistance. This makes it the ideal choice for outdoor use.

Now that you know the benefits of using stainless steel and 7×7 316 stainless steel for your hand swaged wire, you may be wondering how to measure up for your custom length wire.

How to measure your custom-length wire

You can measure your custom-length wire in just a few simple steps:

  1. Measure the distance between the fixing points: To do this, simply measure the distance between the two points where the wire will be attached. Be sure to measure in a straight line and take into account any obstacles or irregularities that may affect the wire’s length. Then, subtract the length of the shackles and turnbuckles.
  2. Contact us, send your drawing with measurements: Once you have your measurement, you can use our contact us form to provide us with the details of your project and send us a drawing of your measurement. Simply follow this link: https://custommadeshadesails.com.au/contact/. We will then be able to provide you with a quote and assist you in placing your order.
