Metal furniture has recently become an interesting topic in facility planning and design.
Once considered too utilitarian in style, contract metal furniture has developed a fresh surge in popularity for a variety of reasons including durability and cleanability. While wood furniture will always remain a popular option, here are the top five reasons to consider metal furniture for your group living, healthcare or camp environments:
1. Believe it or not, it has great style!
Metal furniture manufacturers have worked hard to create furniture that combines both form and function. Natural colors that are reminiscent of wood and laminate drawer faces can transform a basic piece of metal furniture into something indistinguishable from wood furniture aesthetically.
2. Cleanability and pest management.
There is overwhelming scientific evidence that metal furniture does not deter bed bugs any better than wood furniture, but metal furniture does allow easier clean up and tolerates pest fighting chemicals better than wood due to its less absorbent surface. Metal furniture has bends, folds and board areas that still offer pests like bed bugs a place to hide so it is by no means bed bug or pest proof but with proper inspection and maintenance metal furniture can be a useful component of a pest management plan.
3. It’s got spirit & style!
While most metal furniture is designed to mimic or blend in with wood furniture, metal can also be a great statement as part of a team or school spirit color design. Standard primary color options or custom match paints are easy to achieve on metal furniture since metal does not have the variations and graining of wood. Painted metal surfaces are consistent and easy to standardize for any color scheme.
4. Extreme durability.
Metal furniture is a work horse of the contract furniture market. Metal furniture can tolerate extreme use which makes it perfect for any group living environment – especially dormitory and transient housing applications. Metal beds and bunk beds are durable and cleanable. Metal case pieces can include underbed storage, night stands, and chests of drawers. Metal’s finishes are well-sealed so with proper care metal beds and case pieces can withstand punctures, drink rings and general heavy use. What’s more, if the finish ever gets damaged, do-it-yourself patch kits can create a like-new look in very little time.
5. It’s affordable.
While good-quality metal furniture might have a higher sticker price than wood equivalents, you can expect metal furniture to last 10 – 15 years or longer. Many metal furniture collections have warranties that will cover normal use for ten years or more. Metal furniture may require a larger up-front investment but the replacement cycle is less frequent.
Metal furniture is popping up in a lot of places that traditionally use wood furniture. Metal beds and case pieces can be combined to create a highly durable, highly functional living space for group living environments.
Advantages of Steel furniture
1. Stable and Durable
The Steel Furniture is fabricated mainly with the techniques of spot welding and argon welding, all parts are tightly connected with each other and become an inseparable whole part, this makes the steel furniture much stable and durable, and hardly become deformed.
The maintenance work is rarely needed for steel furniture, but the most important thing is that the thickness of the steel sheets must meet standard requirements.
If the furniture is jerry-built and the steel sheets are too thin, a lot of problems will happen during the assembling and when you are using it,so you’d better keep your eyes open and check what gauge steel your supplier is using for you.
Steel furniture has the function of fireproofing, waterproofing and guard against theft, which make it a highly secured product. However, wooden furniture doesn't have these advantages. With these inborn features, the steel furniture could be used in a poor environment and for some special purposes.
We are usually not willing to see something unexpected happen, but if something unexpected happens, the steel furniture can help us minimize our loss.
A summer day, the typhoon landed in some coastal cities, the storm raging. After the flood waters receded, a regular customer came to buy many steel office tables urgently, and he told us that he will change all the filing cabinet and steel lockers using in his office from wood to steel. I ask him why, he told me that during the typhoon, all his office had been flooded and all the expensive wooden furniture were in ruins. But to his surprise, the steel tables and steel file cabinet he bought are all in good condition.
3. High Utilization of Space
Because the steel sheets are thinner than other materials, the steel furniture, which is made of steel sheet, can make full use of space, they have remarkable advantages of saving space and making full use of inside space.
Nowadays, the rent of some office buildings in metropolises is increasingly expensive, the space saved by using steel furniture is much too valuable. That’s why the steel furniture is becoming more and more popular in many countries
4. Healthy to people
Steel furniture is healthy to us. During the production of steel furniture, all the materials used are only steel sheets, which don’t need to be processed by glue or any other chemicals, they don’t give off any harmful materials, actually they are giving off absolutely nothing.
5. Environmentally Friendly
The steel furniture is environmentally friendly, which makes me deeply. As we all know, the Sahara Desert used to be the Sahara Forest, and the ancient Loulan was ever a place for songs and dances, birds and blooms.
The Greater Hinggan, we are not willing to call it Greater Desert in the future, and our own living cities shouldn’t be called “some sites” several years later too. It is only a little harmful to plants by developing and using iron ore, and it is our duty to make every effort to maintain a happy living environment for our posterity.
Many people are fickle now: one thing has been used for less than 5 years, though it is not broken, they want to throw it away merely on account of their aesthetic fatigue. It is the main reason that the resources are reducing and more and more rubbish is accumulating on our earth. If we all use the steel furniture, they won’t be garbage after being abandoned at least, and they can be recycled and come back to life from the fire.
6. Easy to Clean and Maintain
Steel furniture is quite easy to clean, and you don’t need to do any maintenance work once it is set up and used in the correct way.
7. Modern and Fashionable
The steel furniture is modern and fashionable. They can not only be made with different colors and suitable for different environments but also could make harmonious and multiple business spaces with different elements.
8. Stronger Bearing Capacity
The steel furniture has a stronger bearing capacity. All the Steel cupboards, drawer cabinets, and steel lockers are all made with optimized construction, such as the stiffener on the door and the strengthening bar on the shelf and back panel…all these constructions optimization and innovation make the loading capacity of steel furniture extremely high.
The steel furniture can be made into almost all kinds of structures and could be customized multi-functionally to suit different uses.
10. Long Lifetime
The life of the steel furniture is longer(almost up to 10-20 years) if you are using it in the correct way and in a good environment.
11. Wide Application
The steel furniture is ideal for school, office, factory, staff dormitory, dressing-room, storage warehouse, government agency, gym, supermarket, library, hospital, and so on. It is easy to find some steel furniture around you, find it now!
