Weathering Steel

Weathering Steel, also known as Corten steel, is a steel alloy used in architecture for its unique appearance, low maintenance requirements, and durability. When exposed to the elements, it develops a protective rust layer that prevents further corrosion and eliminates the need for painting or other coatings, making it an environmentally friendly and cost-effective choice. Commonly used in building facades, landscaping elements, sculptures, and bridges, weathering steel’s distinctive rusted appearance creates a visually striking contrast with its surroundings, allowing structures to blend seamlessly with natural landscapes or add an industrial touch to urban settings. Its strength and resilience also make it suitable for use in harsh or challenging conditions, such as coastal or high-wind areas.
