Copper

Features

  • Lifespan of 70­­–100 years, depending on exact location.
  • As a result of surface oxidisation caused by weathering, copper forms a protective barrier (patina) that resists further corrosion and extends its life.
  • This results in ongoing colour changes depending on the environment – from blue-green to nut-brown.

Benefits

  • 100% recyclable, natural material.
  • Very high fire rating and non-combustible.
  • Uses less water and energy in production than most other building materials, helping towards green star ratings and ideal for sustainable developments.
  • Extremely durable, resistant to corrosion and therefore less likely to be affected by rainfall, hail and mildew than many other materials.
  • Virtually no maintenance or cleaning.
  • Visually stunning and changes over time, bringing new looks and ‘life’ to buildings as they age.

From centuries-old cathedrals to edgy modern applications, copper has proven its longevity and versatility time and again.
