We are proud to announce that we upgraded the stainless steel on Ladder Pulls from type 304 to type 316. Type 316 is austenitic, non-magnetic, and thermally nonhardenable stainless steel. Type 316 can withstand corrosive attack by sodium and calcium brines, hypochlorite solutions, phosphoric acid. Therefore our Ladder Pulls are made with strong stainless steel that is better protected against rust, buildup and corrosion.
