AGS Stainless uses sustainable materials like marine grade 316 stainless steel to manufacture components for railing systems under the Clearview® brand, which include the Rainier cable railing system, the Glacier panel railing system, the Olympus bar railing system, and the Cascadia railing system.
Marine grade 316 stainless steel is corrosion-resistant, which reduces resource use by eliminating the need to purchase replacement components. In addition, no toxic cleaners are required to passivate and preserve marine grade 316 stainless steel.
Marine grade 316 stainless steel is 100% recyclable with no reduction in quality. A high scrap value ensures that the material is diverted from landfills and recaptured for use in the production of new stainless steel.
Green Building and Architectural Applications
Marine grade 316 stainless steel is playing an important role in green building and sustainable design. Before adding any building product to a specification, remember to ask questions about the potential environmental impact.

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Certification
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is the most widely used rating system in the world for green buildings. LEED projects often use sustainable materials like marine grade 316 stainless steel and favor more efficient construction processes that involve off-site fabrication.
No Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) Emissions
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are toxic gases emitted by solids or liquids that have adverse health effects. Marine grade 316 stainless steel is a healthy choice for interiors and exteriors because it doesn’t produce any VOC emissions.
