Get the Label - Get the Assurance

Make sure the steel roofing you're buying carries the ultimate label of quality. The Canadian Sheet Steel Building Institute (CSSBI) logo identifies steel that will make the grade with the long-lasting performance you require.

As Canada's foremost authority on sheet steel, the CSSBI is integral to the development and promotion of industry standards. Look for the CSSBI quality logo! It can only be found on products produced by CSSBI member manufacturers that adhere to strict standards for quality - often higher than what the industry requires. Get the label and get the peace of mind you need from steel roofing that's designed and produced to deliver.

CSSBI member company steel roofing products must meet strict requirements for quality and performance and consist of hot dipped metallic coated sheet steel pre-finished with colours of proven durability and suitable for exterior exposure as delivered from the coil coater. Specifically, the CSSBI quality product label provides the assurance that these requirements are met or exceeded:

Base Steel
Before painting, the base steel is either zinc-coated (galvanized) to ASTM A653/A653M or 55% aluminum-zinc alloy-coated to ASTM A792/A792M.

Pre-Finish System
CSSBI members use pre-finish systems that consist of a primer and topcoat continuously applied and cured within the paint manufacturer's specifications for cleaned, pre-treated, metallic coated substrate. These paint systems have been tested and approved for exterior Canadian applications.

Paint Qualification
Proven paint systems designed for vertical and non-vertical applications. Performance standards are met for Film Thickness, Film Cure, Film Hardness, Chalk, Fade and Paint Film Integrity.

Each proven colour shall successfully meet the weathering standards. This standard ensures Film Integrity for 30 years on exposure, limits on Chalking for 25 years, and limits on Colour Change for 25 years.
