If the architect wants the structure to be visible as part of interior or exterior architecture we also propose:
• A full range of sections, rolled or built-up welded, combined with high strength steel grades to lighten the structure and make it “slim”
• Our castellated beam range, such as Angelina® or ACB®, with web openings for specific visual rendering
• A full range of tubes from circular to square and rectangular hollow shapes
ArcelorMittal Europe’s offer includes a complete range of possibilities to make your project a unique one.

Architecture with organic coated steels: colourful aesthetics and protection beyond the final product
When designing a building envelope with steel, the end product for roofing or cladding is usually at the centre of attention - aesthetically as well as functionally speaking. Profiled sheets of different shapes, sandwich panels with steel shells in diverse surface structures, architectural siding systems, or tailor-made solutions are all aimed at providing the final aesthetics for our buildings. However, the selection of facade and roofing products involves the choice of the material itself, which is often defined in the design phase. Pre-painted steel is a choice option.Article
Co-engineering helps DACHPOLL ensure roofing tiles respect updated Euronorm24 March 2022
Steel roofing and cladding materials are among the most cost-efficient solutions available on the construction market today. As well as being light and easy to handle, these products are quick to assemble, and they are available in a wide range of shapes and colours to suit almost any built environment. Due to the updated Euronorm (EN 508-1) for self-supporting roofing and cladding sheets that came into force in October 2021, ArcelorMittal Europe – Flat Products has been helping the makers of profiling machines ensure their systems meet the new standard.Product news
Indaten® and Arcorox®: self-protecting steels with raw aesthetics
Since the 1970s, the use of weathering steels, also known as corten or COR-TEN steels (for corrosion resistance and tensile strength), has spread through Europe. Engineers appreciate its corrosion resistance in combination with high strength steels. Weathering steels help reduce maintenance costs while lightening structures - especially useful for bridges. Architects like the expressiveness of this material (often used for facades) and its ability to fit into urban landscapes and natural environments. Additionally, the environmental footprint is greatly improved with the use of weathering steels due to the absence of coating. This article will describe the processes leading to the self-protecting behaviour of weathering steels.Article
De gustibus non est disputandum. Aesthetics and beauty evolve through time and space. Architectural styles change and elapse, but the constant goal of every artist remains the same – to achieve the ideal beauty. Designing unforgettable structures that immerse themselves in the history of architecture while giving their creator an everlasting testimony of their work is most likely every architect’s dream.
Nowadays, technical performances and the sustainable design cycle all lead to challenging construction processes with aesthetics being constantly reassessed. Offering a large combination of forms and colours in modern architecture is currently mandatory in order to satisfy construction sector expectations and bestow buildings with new and complex aesthetic finishes.
In order to respond to these constantly evolving demands, ArcelorMittal Europe has developed a full range of steel products and solutions for exterior building envelopes as well as for interior applications with:
• Metallic and organic coated steels which are proposing new visual aesthetic appearances for building envelopes and interior design
• A large panel of surface finishes: smooth, grained, textured, or embossed
• A wide choice of colours: solid, metallic, pearlescent
• A required degree of gloss: anything from matt to high gloss
• Various printed patterns that can be proposed to complete the range of possibilities
To obtain such performances, among other product ranges ArcelorMittal Europe offers:
• For outdoor use
- Granite®* product range
- Indaten® weathering steel with its specific patina finish
• For Indoor use
- Estetic® product range
*Our Nature collection of organic coated steels is always delivered with coatings and surface treatments free of hexavalent chromium and heavy metals (lead or hexavalent chromium complex).
