Stainless steel architecture

Modern building and structure designs require aesthetic appearance and extended life. As a result stainless steel architecture, once the preserve of prestige projects, is becoming an everyday material due to its strength, corrosion resistance, appearance and sustainability.

Stainless steel is a favorite of architects designing the world’s tallest buildings, the longest bridges, and the most popular public arts projects. Stainless steel is specified where long life, low maintenance, and aesthetic appeal are critical

Stainless steel provides a wide range of benefits for architectural and construction projects including:

  • aesthetic appeal and inherent long-life
  • resistance to high heat, corrosion, pitting, and stress corrosion cracking
  • cost-savings on initial material and over the lifecycle of the project
  • extended lifespan and reduced maintenance for concrete construction where corrosion is a concern
  • maintenance free with a minimum increase in investment cost
