Primate Canopy Trails at the Saint Louis Zoo
The Michael and Qursis Riney Primate Canopy Trails at the Saint Louis Zoo now feature multiple weathering steel elements in eight different primate habitats. The exhibit features climbing structures made from weathering steel hollow structural sections (HSS), which are interwoven between real trees to serve as additional climbing and enrichment activities for the primates in the exhibit. Shelter boxes made from weathering steel are also spread throughout the primate habitats. Above the climbing structures, weathering steel HSS suspend the netting that encloses the exhibit. And lastly, a winding boardwalk made of curved weathering steel gives visitors a treetop view of the exhibit. Read more about the project here.

Cabin Roofing at Como Retreat
When it was time to replicate the roofs on its newly-built guest cabins, the Como Plantation Retreat selected weathering steel for both practical and aesthetic reasons. We supplied 22GA corrugated weathering panels with a 2.67 x 7/8” profile for the roofing material. The rustic, orange-brown patina color blends perfectly with the wood-sided cabins and surrounding wooded, natural area keeping in line with the charm and character of the cabins and the retreat as whole.
