Durable, Sustainable CMR Architectural Metals

Stainless steel buildings have been around for nearly 100 years without showing signs of degradation. Perhaps the most widely known example of this is the dome atop the Chrysler building. Built in 1929, it has only been cleaned twice and remains in excellent condition without any expectation that it will need to be replaced. From an environmental standpoint an architect or building owner can count on this material to last the useful life of the building. Combining this fact with energy savings, heat island mitigation, impressive recycling statistics and other environmental benefits, it is truly a sustainable product that is good for the planet.
