Welcome to STEEL PROFILE® 128

BlueScope is proud to celebrate another year as the Principal Corporate Partner of the Australian Institute of Architects and relished the opportunity to be a part of the 2018 National Architecture Conference - Edge. The profession’s largest annual gathering focused on architecture’s ability to improve experiences at the ‘edges’ of our cities and environment.

A presentation was made at Edge: Emeritus Professor Alec Tzannes was awarded the Australian Institute of Architects’ Gold Medal, its highest honour. Congratulations to Alec for his contributions to the industry, as he embarks on the 2018 Gold Medal Tour.

The Conference was also a valuable opportunity for us to engage with architects and showcase COLORBOND®Coolmax® steel which, in this climate of increasing need for energy-efficient buildings, was well received. We had some great feedback from many of you after explaining that COLORBOND® Coolmax® steel is scientifically designed to provide high solar reflectance and thermal emittance, and has the highest Solar Reflectance Index (SRI) of any BlueScope roofing product – leading to a truly cool roof.

Specifying COLORBOND® Coolmax® steel may help you earn Green Star points in both the Design and As Built, and Communities tools under the Urban Heat Island Credit. This allows one point for high solar reflectance roofing, with COLORBOND® Coolmax® steel in the colour Whitehaven® meeting both the current and aged SRI provisions.

To learn more about COLORBOND® Coolmax® steel visit STEEL SELECT® or call 1800 064 384 and ask for your local specification account manager.

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. For information about product maintenance, including preventative maintenance, please call BlueScope on 1800 753 658.
