Stainless Steel Frames
Eyeglass frames are available in a variety of shapes, colors, and materials. The most common materials used to produce modern eyeglass frames are metals, plastics, and composites. Metal eyeglass frames are valued for their durability, strength, and sleek designs. One of the most popular types of metal used to construct eyeglass frames is stainless steel.
Why choose stainless steel frames?
Stainless steel is a lightweight, durable, corrosion-resistant metal. Like other metal frames, stainless steel frames hold their shape and are extremely durable. Even after an accident, they can spring back into shape. They are easy to adjust and rarely discolor over time. Stainless steel frames can even be fabricated or coated in different colors for a more stylish look.
Both titanium and stainless steel frames are hypoallergenic, which means people with metal allergies can wear them comfortably. One of the main advantages of choosing stainless steel frames over titanium frames is that they are reasonably priced. Stainless steel frames are affordable and can be worn in virtually any environment.
