Editorial information

Welcome to STEEL PROFILE® 127

BlueScope is a longstanding supporter of architectural excellence. This is our 32nd year as Principal Corporate Partner of the Australian Institute of Architects and we are proud to continue our endorsement of the Institute’s endeavours to improve the built environment and foster the architectural industry.

We congratulate all recipients of the 2017 National Architecture Awards and especially applaud the COLORBOND® Award for Steel Architecture winners for buildings that exemplify inspirational and innovative design. This year’s National COLORBOND® Award for Steel Architecture – Arts West, University of Melbourne by ARM Architecture and Architectus in joint venture – shone particularly brightly amongst a worthy field of contenders.

Also this year, we have an exciting evolution in the form of COLORBOND® steel Matt – featuring new paint technology which is designed to diffuse light reflection for an elegantly soft, textured finish. Now available in five colours ranging from light to medium to dark, in depth-of-colour. COLORBOND® steel Matt provides architects with the flexibility to adapt to any design.

To discuss COLORBOND® steel Matt or any of our building products, please visit COLORBOND.com or call 1800 064 384 and ask for our Specification Account Manager in your state, to help bring your design inspirations to life.

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.
