Walls of steel

Let your walls make a statement and stand out for their unique design with wall cladding from COLORBOND steel.

Colorbond steel is an iconic mainstay of many Australian homes. It has featured on rooftops, guttering, garden sheds and fencing as an enduring and adaptable building material. It has now also become a popular choice for wall cladding due its attractive appearance and design flexibility.

The parallel lines of steel corrugation offer striking architectural applications. With Colorbond steel’s impressive pallet of 20 traditional, heritage and contemporary colours inspired by the Australian landscape and coastline, you can choose one or a mix of colours that will look beautiful in any environment.

Over time, the constant wear and tear on the exterior of a home can leave it looking tired and dull. Wall cladding made from Colorbond steel can change that, whilst still offering the benefits of security and durability. Its continuous length and pliable nature means it can be curved and shaped to suit your home’s design.

Colorbond Cladding is a collective term for any sheeting that covers a building, whether it is on the roof of the building, or on the walls. The thickness of sheeting is normally measured as its BMT (base metal thickness). For steel of the same grade and profile, a higher BMT generally means the sheet can span further between supports.

Colorbond steel is an advanced building material due to its strong ZINCALUME steel base, which, when designed and installed properly, provides outstanding anti-corrosion resistance and a tough exterior grade baked topcoat. It is an extremely practical design option for exterior walls that resists chipping, peeling and cracking.

When designed and installed correctly, Colorbond steel is a strong barrier to wind, hailstorm, falling branches and flying debris. It’s also non-combustible and termite resistant.

A great feature is that it is easily maintained only requiring natural rainfall or an occasional wash down for areas out of the rain. The manufacturer of Colorbond steel wall cladding, BlueScope Steel, offers a warranty of up to 12 years for corrosion and paint flaking and peeling.*
