The Benefits of Using Stainless Steel Assemblies

Versatile Applications of Stainless Steel Doors & Frames

Stainless steel is used worldwide for a variety of reasons and applications. Industrial kitchens, surgical instruments, and cookware are almost always made of stainless steel due to its resistance to rusting, durability, and ease of cleaning. Stainless steel can offer a brilliant shine and appearance without compromising the product’s integrity. Because of this, stainless steel doors and frames can be used in almost any environment, regardless of the climate. In addition, stainless steel offers corrosion resistance to numerous chemicals, making it easy to clean. Thus, it is an excellent choice for use in environments with a high level of cleanness, salinity, or chlorination. For example, stainless steel doors and frames can be used in marine or coastal environments, or in areas such as swimming pools, where corrosive chemicals are often used.


Stainless steel is one of the most extensively used materials in the healthcare industry, as it is utilized in a variety of essential applications. Surgical instruments are always made of stainless steel due to its corrosion-resistant nature and the ability to withstand high temperatures, making them easy to sterilize. However, aside from surgical instruments, stainless steel is widely used in medical implants like artificial heart valves and bone fixation equipment, such as screws and plates. Due to stainless steel’s utility in the medical world, it is no surprise hospitals and clinics often have stainless steel doors and frames throughout their facilities. Stainless steel is also resistant to bacteria and other microorganisms, making it a great choice for hospitals and other healthcare facilities. For example, stainless steel door frames can prevent the spread of bacteria in areas such as operating rooms, where cleanliness and sterility are essential to patient safety. 

Stainless Steel Doors and Frames in Healthcare

Stainless steel doors and frames have long been found in healthcare environments. Stainless steel doors and frames can be lightweight while offering the corrosion protection. The doors must be durable and easy to clean, but still meet the function and aesthetic demands of discerning architects, including necessary attributes such as low-profile vision lite kits. Specialized frames for healthcare environments also exist and play a vital role in the cleanliness of healthcare door openings. Typically referred to as sanitary stops or terminated stops, these specialized frames differ from typical frames in that a typical stop will run all the way to the floor. This can lead to a build-up of dust and dirt and can be difficult to clean. With a sanitary base, the stop is terminated above the floor line, meaning you can easily clean and disinfect the area, ensuring limited to no build-up of dust, dirt, mold or worse. This also makes it easier to clean the surrounding area, as well as reducing the risk of pests or other contaminants entering the room through the gap underneath the frame. It also helps to reduce the spread of germs and bacteria, making it ideal for medical facilities and other areas where hygiene is paramount.

Decorative Applications

Stainless steel is often used for decorative purposes due to the multiple finishes available, including mirror finishes, satin finishes, as well as coloured and patterned finishes. Because of this, stainless steel is often found as jewelry, on vehicles as a decorative finish, and in architecture, whether it is on the inside or the outside of a building. Stainless steel is especially important in architecture as it can provide a beautiful accent or finish to a building while providing corrosion protection against weather and air pollution. For this reason, AMBICO designs and manufactures a range of specialized stainless-steel doors and frames for commercial buildings.
