What is Downgrade Steel?
For various reasons, downgrade steel tends to have a bad reputation. In fact, it may be nearly perfect in quality, but it is classified as downgrade only because of its non standard length. Other reasons for the downgrade may be due to weathering, dents or simply different wall thicknesses that don’t meet Australian standards.
Why would you buy it?
It is usually discounted and can be of the same quality as first-class materials. Vegetarian gardens, edges and other similar non-structural projects are very suitable for using downgrade steel. Downgrade is usually large; therefore, using the downgrade steel can save you a lot of money.
Are there any shortcomings?
Yes, there are. Sometimes it looks ugly and may bent or rusted. If you’re working on a quality-critical project, downgrading may not be the best option. If you only need a small number of products, it may be difficult to find suitable size, as these materials are normally sold in full length.
How cheap is it?
It depends on the supplier and the quality of the product offered. In some cases, you can save up to 50% of the cost on the first-class materials, and you may save even more if they are selling in bundle sales. Before committing to purchase, it is best to check with the supplier whether the downgrade is suitable for your work.
