Outdoor use
Upon request outdoor versions with sled base in white or graphite grey are available.
Any material left outside, even if properly treated, can have superficial molecular and colour changes during its lifetime. Of course, the amount of alterations is directly related to the amount of exposure to weather and to the geographical area (for ex., high humidity and/or salinity).
Regular maintenance, for instance periodic cleaning with water, increases resistance to corrosion.
