What's the 430ss Stainless Steel Grade:
The hemmed panels feature a 430 stainless steel for good corrosion protection in general purpose applications such as restaurants, schools, healthcare facilities, industrial and commercial facilities, etc. The 430 stainless steel will hold a magnet, and will provide an attractive, long lasting solution that requires very little maintenance.
The panels feature 22ga material, which provides a good balance of quality and price. The 22ga material is about as thick as a credit card, and is light enough that it doesn't become an installation hassle, yet thick enough to provide a good surface protection solution.
What are Hemmed Edges?
The hemmed edges are made by folding 1/2in of material to the back of the panel. The end result is a panel that is 1/8in thick with an attractive, finished edge that requires no additional trim or other edge treatment. Hemmed edges are highly recommended unless you have a specific reason not to get them.
Do I Need Installation Tape + Adhesive?
If you want to save yourself time and you are interested in having a nice looking, and drama-free installation, the tape and adhesive option is recommended. We have two different tape thicknesses. One is for hemmed edges at 0.125" thick, and the other is for unhemmed edges at 0.016" thick. The RTV silicone will ensure a 15+ year installation. On jobs where you want to get in and out in minutes, this is your solution. Plus, you won't be getting a callback.
