Our satin brushed stainless steel switch plates are made to look great among your stainless kitchen appliances in a home or restaurant kitchen, or in a garage, workshop or industrial environment. They're commonly installed in businesses, hospitals and schools as well.
In the image here, a stainless steel plate is held up next to a satin nickel finish switchplate.
The nickel plate is a warmer, yellower tone in color with a smoother, less brushed look that you'll see in stainless steel appliances.
This close-up image shows a brushed aluminum plate stacked on top of a stainless and nickel cover plate.
Aluminum plates are the lightest finish, and are made of .050" type 5052 alloy.
Polished chrome switch plates are very reflective and have a smooth finish with a slight showing of horizontal grain.
Stainless steel covers have a vertical grain on lower gang plates (1- and 2-gang) and a horizontal grain on higher gang plates (3+).
We carry 2 different weights of satin stainless steel faceplates.
The look is exactly the same - both are "satin" or "brushed" stainless steel.
Choose the 430 Stainless finish (.030" thick) for your home - in a kitchen remodel, wet bar, or garage workshop.
The 302 Stainless finish is slightly thicker metal (.035") and is for industrial use - commonly chosen for hospitals, schools and restaurants.
