Architectural and design trends are always changing over time and it’s interesting to see how corten steel privacy screens have become popular in the past few years, though what makes them so special?
First and foremost, when looking at any privacy screen you have to think about how it will last over time and the subsequent maintenance needed, which is especially important for commercial applications (e.g. hotels/resorts) as well as luxury residential properties. It’s not so much the initial investment that’s the big cost but instead ongoing maintenance: Cleaning regularly, applying paint every few years, etc.
Corten steel is also known as “weathering steel” and one of its most distinctive features is how it becomes more appealing over time – like a fine wine hidden in a cellar for 20+ years – to form the patina we all know and love. As opposed to worrying about maintenance, corten steel doesn’t require any which, aside from the visual appeal, delivers big cost savings over time.
Secondly, like taking a lump of clay and molding it into the most epic piece of pottery, the same craftsmanship goes into creating custom corten steel privacy screens where anything you can imagine is possible. The sky’s the limit.
