Anyone know the price on a sheet of 3mm corten Steel?
Depends how big the sheet is Steel prices are on the rise again, £40/T going on structural next week.
Ring a supplier and get an up to date quote.
Recently priced some 7m x 1.5m x 30mm thick plates for a job, a cool 30K
Way out of date but pre lockdown i was quoted £150 for a 1.2x2.5 I didn't buy it because I knew they were trying it on.
If I could get it at a reasonable price here id be happy
My normal suppliers are useless so I’ve been using brundles a lot. They’re useless too but they’re online prices are good for quoting jobs, and stuff normally turns up next day for £10 delivery.
I’ve just made an account with Kloeckner. Will see what they quote.
Kloeckner will buy it in from a plate supplier, add their mark up and have your pants down. You would be better speaking to plate suppliers direct. M Britain, John Taintons etc etc. Nearer you get to the company thats making/decoiling it the cheaper it is.
Brundles are expensive.
Ain’t got many options down here in the south.
just checked... Sheet Corten S355J2WP 1250x2500x3 is quoting at £219+vat near me
I’ll have a ring round Monday. Just some decorative projects I want it for
That’s what I was after it for. Doesn’t make my £150 look too bad!
ASD, now Knoeckler supplied Corten to my last place quite regularly.
Never used to have issues getting steel in Somerset, you must have more options than Brundles Brad?
The likes of AJN in Kentford no good to you?
I have Rainham Steel nearby (never been competitive on price), IMS (messers, never deliver when they say they will), Is&G (my usual supplier, COVID is a massive excuse for their usual poor service to get even worse), brundles (expensive but deliver reliably and you can look price up online).
Kloeckner are the next nearest supplier. I’ve seen AJN lorries around, maybe I’ll give them a call.
@Brad93 have you tried www.steelscout.com ? used to be metal hub. its a broker but I have had some surprisingly good results when I needed one off bits. they give you a price from all the suppliers in your area.
As Corten is a trade name it puts the price up. If only for decorative work search for weathering steel.
I'd never heard of Corten so I looked it up - interesting properties. I didn't realise that the Angel of the North was made from it.
Sorry for the thread hijack but this is the house built by Wayne Scott, a rather clever chap I know in NZ. A prolific "ideas" man. He'll design a desk then a crane. Often accompanied by beautiful charcoal sketches. Steel feature "reeds" are Corten steel about 5 years old, hence the post:
Not my cup of tea but an interesting design
Looks a right mess
Like a finished game of Ker-plunk
I agree, but the location is right up my street!
