When delivering long-term sustainable building envelope solutions, durability is key

With embodied carbon driving specification choices, product durability is more important than ever. With design advantages, maintenance benefits and corrosion resistance, pre-finished steel is leading the way when it comes to whole-life carbon.

Product durability is a vital part of achieving more sustainable building envelopes that deliver in-use benefits, maximising the project’s lifespan and reducing its carbon footprint. Imagine a cladding system that doesn’t even last a decade before it deteriorates and requires remedial work…

Instead, by making informed specification decisions and choosing long-lasting, high-quality solutions backed up by comprehensive test evidence, you can do your bit in helping to build a positive legacy.

Tata Steel’s Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra® pre-finished steel combines outstanding performance with exceptional durability designed to withstand even the most demanding and aggressive environments. Its nominal 200-micron thick structure incorporates a robust and durable topcoat and is up to 4 times thicker than many other options, resulting in a more sustainable option and durable product.
