Online Information Centre for Stainless Steel in Construction
This resource is a case study on stainless steel roofing in Singapore built in 1999. It contains information and images that focus on the stainless steel elements, describing the design criteria and method, the construction and the performance of the finished product after construction. The process of grade selection is discussed, considering environment, salt exposure, weather, design and maintenance. The Singapore Turf Club, which is in a coastal location and exposed to urban pollution, used grade 1.4401 and 2D finish for a curved roof, entrance canopy and walkway covers. The roof used 6m wide undulating sections and allows for maintenance walkways that double for gutters.
