Benefits Of Steel Furniture

Steel has many advantages as a furniture material. Steel furniture is attractive, safe, environmentally friendly. Steel is one of the least reactive metals used in furniture application, it does not corrode and reacts with very few chemicals. Steel resists dents better than aluminium or chrome, next to wood, steel has become the structural material of choice:

Steel Won’t End Up In Landfill
Planex storage isn't destined to end up as landfill. Unlike joinery and conventional laminate storage, Planex’s range of steel lockers and storage reduce the number of resources needed for manufacture and have been designed PVC and VOC free. 

Recyclable
Planex use BlueScope steel which can be fully recycled replacing the use of unrecyclable laminate and MDF used in joinery fit-outs and lockers. Steel is one of the most recycled materials worldwide.

Powder coating
Powder Coating is an environmentally friendly coating material, which provides a uniform, durable, high-quality environmentally safe and attractive finish. Planex can also refresh furniture powder coats as time passes to reinvigorate furniture to look as good as new.

Contemporary Design
Steel furniture is modern and contemporary. Available in over 150+ powder coats designers can create products from the building blocks in our range to suit a wide range of interiors, whilst reflecting the aesthetic of the client environment.

Stable and Durable
Steel storage is fabricated with spot welding. All parts are tightly connected with each other and become an inseparable whole part. This makes the steel furniture much more stable and durable than joinery. See attached AFRDI certification.

Environmentally Healthy
Steel storage is healthy for end-users and manufacturers. During the production of steel storage, the main materials used are sheet metal and powder coats which don’t need to be processed by glue or other chemicals. This means steel storage doesn’t give off any harmful VOC’s once places within the office.

Strong Bearing Capacity
Steel furniture has a stronger bearing capacity. Steel drawers and steel lockers are all made with optimized construction, and strengthening components integrated into the design. This optimization and innovation makes the loading capacity of our steel storage extremely high.

Better Utilization of Space
Because steel sheets are thinner than other materials such as laminate, steel furniture which is made of sheet metal can make better use of limited office space.

Multi-functional
Steel furniture can be customized to offer multi-functionally to suit different use. Units can be reused, reconfigured, repurposed or relocated which extends the longevity of the fit-out. Additionally, we have a range of accessories to fit across our range.
