ArcelorMittal Orbit Tower
APERAM 3STF at London 2012 Olympic Games !
Aperam 3STF supplied 2000m of welded stainless steel tubes (42.4x2, TIG welded, 316L/1.4404, Polished grit 220) for the ArcelorMittal Orbit Tower in London, situated next to the Olympic stadium. The tubes are used for the handrail in the staircase which allows the ascent of the monument. The use of stainless brings a nice contrast with the structure made out of carbon steel tubes. It also matches well with other stainless steel materials such as the expanded metal that is used to stabilize and secure the stairs.
