No, this is not a thread about low budget brothels... :grin:

Where is the cheapest place to buy stainless steel sheet? I am preparing a plan for a commercial kitchen, and want to line it with stainless. Anyone know any good suppliers for sheet steel?

Ta, Jock

I'm about to have a custom fit splash back made in s/s and I just went thru' the yellow pages (or you could just google) and looked for a metal fabricator. They were more than happy to help and changed no more than an off the shelf square splashback - altho that wouldn't fit as my hood is curved.

There isn't a whole lot of metal fabricators in my yellow pages!! I've tried some from google, just wondered if anyone had a number that was good. I don't need any fabrication, just plain sheet...

Cheers Jason,

I'll try and get a hold of them tomorrow.

As far as working with it goes, I'm hoping it shouldn't be too hard, as all I want to do is fasten it flat to walls for easy cleaning and dirt resistance... Can't be that hard... :?

If your using this for catering it may be worth getting hold of your local health inspector to understand the correct type to use and also the requirements on how to fit it hygenically ie not leaving any groves where two surfaces meet which can result in a build-up of debri - only a thought :wink:

Quite so. I've been advised by a number of sources that 304 grade will be adequate.. As to joining the gaps, I was hoping that snug fitting with an overlapping strip (say 50mm) would be sufficient. Any other points to consider?

316 is food grade stainless steel.

If you need to bend it, get 316L.
