Have you spotted a rusty-looking bridge in your community or while traveling? From pedestrian bridges to highway bridges, corten-equivalent weathering steel is often used as an alternative for bridge construction. While conventional steel bridges take advantage of the latest advances in automated fabrication and construction...

Fencing, gates, barriers and bollards are needed in many scenarios to provide safety, security, privacy and decoration. For instance, homeowners often need fencing to keep children and pets safe, prevent trespassers, establish property boundaries, create more privacy or improve the curb appeal of their home. Commercial and public spaces have similar needs. Barriers are often required to protect pedestrian areas from streets or parking lots. Fencing can conceal unattractive sites, like garbage bins and dumpsters, and provide boundaries for specific spaces. 

The atmospheric corrosion resistance of weathering steel enable it to be used unpainted in many structural and architectural applications, such as bridges and open-frame buildings. However, there are several lesser-known ways to use weathering steel and take advantage of its strength, durability and corrosion-resistant properties as well as its aesthetically-appealing appearance. 

From garden design to transmission poles, there are countless applications for corten and weathering steel. Corten’s aesthetically-pleasing appearance, strength, durability and versatility that make it suitable for unique situations. Central Steel Service provided the material for an especially innovative and artful project.  The project Fresno Fab Tech...

While there are several benefits of using weathering steel, the fundamental benefit is its ability to resist corrosion. The atmospheric corrosion resistance of weathering steel enables it to be used unpainted in many structural and architectural applications for structures, including bridges, open-frame buildings, transmission towers,...
