Even the most sophisticated metal coatings have the potential to corrode, lose color or gloss, or crack and peel. For architects, specifiers, consultants, and building owners, the only protection from these potential liabilities is a strong, enforceable warranty.
Materials such as tile and sheet goods are typical flooring options, but for many projects, high-performance coatings are a capable and often-desired alternative. Selecting the right coatings and specifying the appropriate system can be more difficult than picking out a type of tile or vinyl.
Design, specification, steel chemistry, and fabrication practices all have an influence on the HDG coating appearance. Although appearance does not affect the durability or corrosion resistance of HDG steel, it can impact the intended use of the product.
When it comes to framing, there is no more resilient option than cold-formed steel (CFS). By analyzing resiliency in the context of the built environment, this article will explore the various attributes of a resilient structure, and make the case for why CFS performs best in each scenario.
