Designing with stainless steel. Stainless steel with design.

ROOFINOX for modern architecture, buildings and art

Frank Gehry, Norman Foster, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier, Zaha Hadid, Jeff Koons, Anish Kapoor, William Van Alen, Daniel Libeskind and many other renowned architects, designers and artists have one thing in common: their successful and impressive work with stainless steel.

Creators like them use(d) the many facets of stainless steel with skill, aesthetics and often with an unmistakable and rewarding dose of courage. They play with the full range of possibilities that the metal has to offer by nature. This is precisely how they show that stainless steel is far more than a cold, impersonal, hard or purely functional building material.

Stainless steel properties for ideas and freedom

Stainless steel has always scored points with its exceptionally good properties. For this reason, it is particularly attractive and equally important for those who design and create with what they do: for architects and designers who want to live out their creative freedom without compromise and put it into practice. With HFX stainless, this is exactly what is possible.

Design expertise from ROOFINOX

ROOFINOX understands that design plays a special role in the creative process. Every work of art is the result of individual work and it is precisely this understanding that is part of our own corporate DNA. That is why the development of the innovative HFX stainless steel is largely based on this aspect: design. ROOFINOX stands for this like no other - always and forever.

Design surfaces from ROOFINOX: HFX stainless as you like it

It all started with ROOFINOX CLASSIC and the 4-fold matte surface structure. The metallic HFX stainless is brush-rolled, 35% softer than comparable products and creates an almost textile feel. It feels good and looks beautiful, just like all ROOFINOX design surfaces. Find out here how our rough and diagonally crossed structure is created.

ROOFINOX has been continuously developing stainless steel for more than four decades - the result is a wide variety of surfaces with unmistakable designs for roofs, facades and more. They combine the globally appreciated functionality of the material with aesthetics, peace of mind and sustainability. Like no other. We are the inventors of HFX stainless, the highly flexible stainless steel especially for roofs and facades.

HFX stainless: the design story

Today, ROOFINOX offers a valuable range of HFX stainless design surfaces for architects, builders and craftsmen. This is possible because expert developers, the management and the entire company have continuously focused on the further development of the feel, appearance and workability of the material since the beginning of the 21st century. What was once only conceivable for industrial purposes has become increasingly practical and suitable for everyday use thanks to new types of finishing. The passion and dedication of ROOFINOX make it possible for the highest quality stainless steel to be accessible to more than just the elite of architects and builders.

HFX stainless is still an exceptional material and can produce sensational results. But it has become more accessible to the general public. It can be used for extravagant architectural projects as well as private homes. With surfaces ranging from ultra-matt to mirror-gloss, it offers almost endless potential, especially for architects. The HFX stainless we know today is made by designers for designers. It is strong yet soft, versatile yet characteristic. It is great to combine and has been thought through down to the smallest detail - in its function, a coordinated complete system and in its appearance.
