Nestled in the picturesque region of Otago on the South Island of New Zealand, the Clutha Gold Cycling & Walking Trail has become a beloved destination for both locals and tourists. Thanks to Calder Stewart this trail, renowned for its diverse and stunning landscapes, now features a series of weathering steel pedestrian bridges on the section between Milton and Waihola. We’re proud to have supplied the weathering steel material and Cor-Match welding wire for a project that not only enhances the aesthetic appeal of the trail but also showcases innovative engineering suited to the local environment.

Staying at the forefront of industry advancements is not just a commitment–it's a necessity. The National Steel Bridge Alliance (NSBA) has taken a pioneering step towards excellence with its recently published Uncoated Weathering Steel Reference Guide. As a trusted supplier of high strength and high strength weathering steels, we recognize the significance of this comprehensive guide and its potential to revolutionize the way our customers approach uncoated weathering steel.

By: Jackie Edwards, Landscape Designer Ever considered that a material used by builders could also strike an artist's fancy? This is where corten steel--a unique alloy, steps in, breezily smashing such boundaries. Renowned for its remarkable resistance to corrosion, it continues to be an artist's ally for outdoor installations, handling Mother Nature's mood swings in stride.  No need for pampering or high maintenance--corten steel's protective patina layer embraces the wrath of weather, regenerating itself like a phoenix rising from the ashes, ensuring the aesthetics of your home or business exterior remain untouched. 

Given its aesthetically-pleasing appearance and practical benefits, it’s no wonder why Barfield Fence & Fabrication has used cor-ten steel, also referred to as weathering steel, for a few recent projects. Located in Apopka, FL, Barfield Fence and Fabrication aims to make unique and elegant products that make an impact. “A product that stands above the competition, not just a boundary, but a piece of art,” Barfield Fence and Fabrication emphasizes on their website.
