Editorial information

Welcome to STEEL PROFILE® 125

This issue marks the 50th anniversary of an iconic building product that has become a mainstay of Australian construction for its versatility, durability and enduring aesthetics. As such, we are celebrating the milestone with an edition commemorating and celebrating COLORBOND® steel.

As a longstanding supporter of excellence in Australian architecture and 31-year Principal Corporate Partner of the Australian Institute of Architects, BlueScope congratulates all recipients of the 2016 National Architecture Awards – and especially applauds the National and stated-based COLORBOND® Award for Steel Architecture winners for buildings that exemplify inspirational and innovative design.

As part of our 50th Anniversary of COLORBOND® steel celebrations, we will be reaching out to you. We look forward to working with you in 2017 and beyond to help develop the best building solutions for your projects.

Every project is different and not all products are suitable for all applications, projects and environments. Some products may perform better than others in certain applications and conditions. You should confirm the suitability of particular products for your project by contacting the supplier directly and by obtaining information and advice specific to your circumstances.

BlueScope generally recommends the use of COLORBOND® steel or ZINCALUME® steel for the majority of external cladding applications. BlueScope recommends routine preventative maintenance for eaves and other “unwashed areas” of structures that may not be regularly cleaned by rainfall.
