An iconic Australian product known for its durability and design flexibility, COLORBOND® steel has become a household name in Australia. Evolving into one of the world’s most advanced building materials over the past 45 years, COLORBOND® steel has become Australia’s single most popular steel brand. The reasons for its popularity are based on its sleek and elegant looks as well as its durability and thermal performance. And it’s for this reason that COLORBOND® steel is the product of choice for our sheds.
Here in Australia, our buildings certainly face some pretty challenging weather conditions from extremes of heat and cold, to dust, rain, wind and hail. COLORBOND® steel – it’s been tested for over 45 years in some of Australia’s most extreme conditions. The oven baked finish of COLORBOND® steel resists flaking and blistering in normal weather conditions. Coupled with this, the corrosion resistant ZINCALUME® steel base ensures long life performance.
COLORBOND® steel is available in a range of 22 contemporary colours, which celebrate the natural beauty of the Australian landscape. From our mountains to the outback, from our creek beds to our sand dunes, COLORBOND® steel captures the light and energy that make Australia’s colours so unique. With 22 inspired colour choices ranging from traditional to contemporary, COLORBOND® steel provides the ideal palette from which to create the desired look and feel for your home and garden.
COLORBOND® steel is durable and resilient to Australia’s harsh climate and its long life helps conserve resources and energy that may otherwise be invested in products with a shorter life span. All COLORBOND® steel contains recycled content and is 100% recyclable. In some cases it can be reused without reprocessing, again saving on energy and resource use. It is a lightweight material which can mean a lower cost to transport to site and a lighter roof structure. And it is strong, which means it can help protect your home in stormy weather. Together, COLORBOND® steel’s beauty, strength and environmental performance combine to make it a responsible choice for your future, and the environment.
Simple maintenance of COLORBOND® steel by regular washing with clean, fresh water will not only prolong its life but also maintain its attractiveness for longer periods thus protecting your asset. Applications where the paint finish is naturally washed by rainwater do not usually require this maintenance, e.g. roofing. However, some areas such as wall cladding under eaves, the top of garage doors and the underside of eave gutters are often not washed by rainwater, and so require some attention. Ensure these ‘unwashed’ areas are hosed down at least every six months and more frequently in coastal areas where marine salt spray is prevalent, and in areas where high levels of industrial fallout occur. It is also important to ensure that there is no build-up of debris, such as soil and mulch against COLORBOND® steel products.
If cared for in this way, your building components made from COLORBOND® steel should give many years of easy maintenance life.
