Why Australian farmers love COLORBOND® steel


Farm sheds

Transform your building from ordinary to extraordinary with COLORBOND® steel. The name has become synonymous with many Australians as the leading building material of choice. Far more than simply paint on steel, over the past 50 years COLORBOND® has gained the trust of the country and has become a builder's staple. 

Industry magnate BlueScope Steel has invested heavily into research and development of their brand to create a technically advanced structural solution. This genuine Australian steel product has been developed to meet and exceed our strict building standards. Having been tried and tested across experimental sites in various terrain and weather conditions, COLORBOND® offers more than just aesthetics.

COLORBOND® promotes five layers of protection, which delivers high performance and dependability to Australians. The steel undergoes multiple treatments using cutting-edge technology to achieve its longevity benefits. A product like no other, the steel comprises a durable paint finish that resists chipping, peeling and cracking. The result is a future-focused colourful solution for durable buildings, for today, tomorrow and many years to come.

Whether your property is out in the countryside or close by the seaside, COLORBOND® has a colour choice that will meet your style and compliment your existing façade. Inspired by the colours of Australia, the myriad of options are presented in two groups; contemporary and classic. With 22 colours in the palette, you are sure to find a shade to create the ideal colour scheme for your building.

COLORBOND® is a product that is supported by one of Australia's largest manufacturers, BlueScope Steel. Confident in their products, BlueScope offers a variety of warranties to protect your investment for now and into the future. Be reassured with its reliability to stand-up against both time and weather elements, exposed to your building.

A responsible choice for the future and the environment, did you know COLORBOND® steel contains recycled content and is 100% recyclable? This lightweight material brings down the cost of transport to your site and has thermal efficiency properties. Working with COLORBOND® throughout your construction process is a cost-effective and environmentally sustainable solution for your building project.

Adaptable to a multitude of designs COLORBOND® is not only strong but lightweight and durable.
