The benefits of steel façade systems may be presented in terms of their functional and aesthetic requirements, as follows:
A variety of colours and surface textures is possible
Corten steel facades minimise the loads on the supporting structure
Light steel infill walls using C sections can be used to support a wide range of cladding systems
Facades can be highly pre-fabricated for speed of installation
Steel glazing systems can be used for visual effect in tall entrance areas and atria
Steel is non-combustible and robust to damage in façade panels
A high level of thermal and acoustic insulation can be provided.
