Superior Corrosion Resistance

Achieving a Superior Corrosion Resistance with 316's'

Although stainless steel has an inherent corrosion resistance it cannot be called 'stain free'. In certain conditions it will stain and discolour. 

To offer our customers a superior product and greater value for money, all G316 Fastec handrail fittings are manufactured using grade 2205 which has increased levels of 'Chromium', 'Molybdenum' & 'Nickel', above the maximum percentage stated for G316 offering greater corrosion resistance. 

We call this superior grade G136's' ('s' means superior). This higher grade offers substantially more corrosion resistance than standard G316, providing greater peace of mind, lower maintenance and less cleaning. 


Look for the G316's' logo against our products to see which items are manufactured from 2205.

Sheffield Testing Laboratories Ltd have carried out stringent tests to compare the performance of G316 and G316's' under rigorous salt spray testing. The G316's' fitting outperformed the standard grade G316 fitting, showing no sign of staining over the same test period. 

In addition to its unrivalled aesthetic appeal, Fastec G316's' products offer unmatched durability, long life and low maintenance, providing a robust, extra corrosion-resistant solution for a wide range of applications. Your installation will maintain its 'as new' appearance with minimal attention. 

Our G316's' fittings offer superior corrosion resistance.
