We are often asked if our stainless steel posts and components are available in other finishes such as brushed or matt black. The answer is yes but there are some factors to consider. Marine grade polished stainless steel has a very high resistance to corrosion and discoloration. Brushed stainless steel is polished stainless steel that has been scratched in a controlled way to provide a satin finish. This can look great but it is possible for microscopic impurities to get stuck in the scratches causing staining and discoloration. This can be prevented by regular cleaning.

Powder coating is a type of coating that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. Unlike conventional liquid paint which is delivered via an evaporating solvent, powder coating is typically applied electrostatically and then cured under high heat in an oven. The powder may be a thermoplastic or a thermoset polymer. It is usually used to create a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint. We can powder coat in any color and many different finishes.
