Steel Surfaces: A Guide to Finishes, Fabrication, in Architecture and Art

As fabricators, steel is a material that is very important to us. If you design or work with steel, this is the definitive guide you need.


Written for architecture professionals, metal fabricators and developers, architecture students, designers, and artists working with metals, Steel Surfaces offers a logical framework for the selection and application of steel in all aspects of architecture.


Steel Surfaces, the fourth book in Zahner's Architectural Metals Series, is a comprehensive and authoritative treatment of steel applications in architecture and art.


This visual, full-color guide offers architecture and design professionals the information they need to ensure proper maintenance and fabrication techniques. Zahner's approach to the use of steel in architecture and art covers everything from the history of the metal and choosing the right alloy, to detailed information on a variety of surface and chemical finishes and corrosion resistance. Case studies offer architecture and design professionals strategies for designing and executing successful projects using steel.
