Use concrete blocks, only if floor fastening is not possible.

For some products we combine different high quality types of stainless steel. Aggressive environmental conditions caused by chlorides, acid rain, salt and other rusty materials will require periodic maintenance.
We advise regular treatment with stainless steel cleaner or protector, especially in aggressive environments. Products to clean and protect are widely available.
How to treat stainless steel
Galvanization is the most durable method for protecting metal from rusting. The metal is immersed in a zinc bath, which results in a protective layer. If the layer gets damaged, the metal under it will start rusting. However, any damage can be touched up with zinc paint available from any DIY store. Galvanized steel has a very long life span and is perfectly recyclable if necessary.
We call it the George Clooney of coating techniques: its looks improve better with age... Our tools with galvanized surfaces are masters of camouflaging dirt, thanks to the material's rough texture. At first, galvanized pieces look very shiny, but they will gradually turn matte under the influence of sun and rain. Rain may also cause dark stains underneath the connection zones.
