Today most Stainless steel in use is made from recycled and recyclable materials. At the end of the roof’s lifespan, a Stainless Steel Roof can also be recycled. A Stainless Steel Roofing is considered a cool roof because of its high reflectivity, this reflects heat from a building and stops it from building up in the roof. Reducing the energy consumption of the building.
Stainless steel is relatively lightweight, which means it can be installed on top of an existing roof with little modification. It is also malleable and easy to work with, which makes it possible to create innovative moldings, cornices and other attractive design elements that will set your building apart from its neighbors.
Fire resistance. Because Stainless Steel is noncombustible, they typically have a Class A fire rating (the most fire-resistant rating). Just be aware that part of a roof’s overall classification depends on materials beneath the surface that could ignite in intense heat, too. Most metal roofs applied over a combustible material such as wood shingles have a lower, Class C rating for this reason.
Whereas steel is an iron and carbon alloy, stainless steel is a steel that contains at least 10.5% chromium, other alloying elements, and less than 1.2% carbon. The chromium content provides stainless steel with its corrosion resistance, enabling the natural and continuous development of a chromium-rich oxide surface layer. This oxide, referred to as the ‘passive layer,’ provides it with lasting protection against all types of corrosion.
