Copper is thin, strong, and beautiful in all circumstances. The specific micro-climate of the installation site will determine whether the patina develops in the direction of a dry bronze or turquoise verdigris, and will start to change color within three months. Copper contains 95% recycled content, is highly recyclable, has a long lifespan, requires no maintenance, and is anti-microbial. Best uses: decorative shade and canopy, architectural accent, non-theft areas for artistic design.
Steel is industrial, structural, and durable. It contains 90% recycled content and can contribute to LEED credits. The downside to steel is it will always want to rust - there's just no way around it. While corrosion-resistant steel is available, it requires routine maintenance. This is a very versatile material, best suited for indoor projects. Best uses: indoor use to prevent rust, outdoor use with routine maintenance.
