Stainless steel for water control

Steel structures submerged in water has traditionally been manufactured from plain construction steel, that has been painted to mitigate corrosion (rust). With higher demands on sustainability and life cycle costs, stainless steel becomes more frequently used for applications like Water gates and sluices. Stainless steel offers a practically maintenance free solution without expensive coatings that later will demand re-coatings and environmental  concerns like micro plastic waste.
