Rods used in assemblies are produced from solid rods made of stainless steel as standard or brass when a finish other than satin stainless is required. Rod fixings are made from a brass alloy, UNS C37710/ASTM B124. Bottom rod fixings are provided with spring tensioners—rods will not slacken with temperature changes; easily adjusted without tools.
Matte (Pearl) Nickel/Chrome Plating: chrome is plated over matte nickel to achieve a hard, uniform finish that is semi-lustrous with low reflectivity. It is also referred to as pearl or velour chrome, which does not have the lines or grainy appearance found in traditional satin nickel/chrome finishes. Satin chrome is the only standard/stock finish. Custom finishes are available on request. Lead times will be longer and a minimum quantity may be required.
For indoor use only. Rod system performs well in all closed environments as long as it is not exposed to direct weathering such as rain, snow, moisture, etc. For marine or other high humidity environments, please request stainless steel type 316/582 rods that have a higher corrosion resistance. Follow the instructions and weight-bearing limitation indicated on the technical data sheets.
Rods are designed and manufactured to the rigid standards of quality with a 12-month guarantee on all metal components.
