Corrosion-Free Sheet Pan Rims

It’s a serious problem encountered by bakeries, restaurants, foodservice operations, and anyone that uses sheet pans on a regular basis. Corrosion.

Wires used in sheet pan rims are the number one area where corrosion begins. These wires are typically made of cold rolled steel. Cold rolled steel is extremely durable and resistant to breakage and deformation, which is why it is the most popular choice when it comes to manufacturing sheet pan wires; however, when these steel wires encounter water or other liquids that have gotten under the rims of the sheet pans and are not dried properly, corrosion begins to take place, rust will form, and contamination of products begins.

Until now, most foodservice operations have continued using sheet pans with cold rolled steel wires. Once the corrosion has progressed far enough to cause the rim to be discolored, the foodservice operators either throw the sheet pans away and are forced to buy all new pans or they continue using the corroded pans. Sheet pans made with wires other than cold rolled steel have never really been an option…until now. The team at Chicago Metallic has recognized the need for a solution to this problem, which is why we now offer all of our stock sheet pans with aluminum or stainless steel wire options.
