...Bring Sustainability Home
Welcome to Steelskin. Extraordinary Alternatives... It’s been our motto since we opened in 1992. Back then, sustainability wasn’t really a developed concept, but we were always aware of the material choices we would offer, not only to our customers, but to our work force as well. Although many of these items and practices required extra cost to implement, we had a feeling it would reap benefits in the end, and by default, we had developed a highly sustainable line of products without changing gears; some like to say it was a happy accident; I prefer extraordinary. Steelskin and it’s collections are changing the way we think about kitchen and bath design. Fabricated here in the US utilizing state of the art equipment and design principles, Steelskin is a value engineered suite of sustainable, LEED applicable products that leaves the competition behind. Steelskin has expanded and now includes, The Ecourban Collection, a sustainable cabinet system for kitchen, bath, and office, as well as, The Soupcan Collection, alternative surfacing materials ranging from cement based hybrids, to metallics such as Sueded Stainless Steel, Copper, and Zinc. Whatever you’re looking for, Steelskin fits the bill: Residential Kitchens & Vanities, Eco Conscious Alternatives, Outdoor or Wet Area Applications, Chemically Sensitive Clients, Medical, Dental, or Professional Suites, Multi Unit, Large Scale Development, or Hospitality Projects. We are committed to providing only the highest quality sustainable products for our clients. We look forward to a remarkable future, and we hope you can be part of it. Steelskin: bring sustainability home! Gerry Santora, CEO & Founder Steelskin, Inc.

e c o u r b a n ES ESX Ecosteel. The material of choice in todayâ€™s finest kitchens, stainless steel has now been taken to a new plateau with EcoSteel. An amalgamation of alloy, accouterment, and sensibility, this system can be specified with a thermofused metallic interior (ES), or as an all stainless steel cabinet box utilizing our innovative weldless assembly system(ESX), and is available in a multitude of configurations. As an all stainless steel specification, ESX produces no off-gases or pollutants to assemble. ESX can be utilized for exterior applications in any climate condition! EcoSteel is available in 2 distinctive Finish options: Classic #4 and InvisaPrint. Both are complimentary to most stainless appliance finishes. All doors and panels are constructed utilizing 18 ga. Type 304 stainless steel. InvisaPrint has a mill applied finish that cuts down on maintenance and cleaning usually associated with stainless steel panels. No more fingerprints to worry about!

SOUPCAN (THE DOG) CIRCA 1999
The Soupcan Collection Material transcended... The line blurs as our mindâ€™s eye navigates its way through a coalescence of styles. At this junction, materials become interchangeable. Soupcan is an exclusive collection; a merger between extraordinary surfacing alternatives such as cement hybrids, stainless steel, copper, and zinc. The combinations are infinite, but the results are consistent; unparalleled quality and choices. Projects can be specified in exact proportions with seamless integration of design and space requirements. Custom sink and vanity designs, countertops, fireplace surrounds, wall panels, and more. The applications and possibilities are boundless. Soupcan is imagination! The story behind the name (in case you were curious). As you can tell by now, we donâ€™t make soup, sell soup, or serve soup. Our name came from the dog (yes, the dog came first). We found him in an alley in 1991, pushing an empty soupcan around. He was as skinny as a rail and as fast as lightning, but once we convinced him we were ok, he decided to stick around. A year later, when we opened our business, we named it after him. He came to work everyday until he passed during the summer of 2007 at the ripe old age of 16 (something like 112 in dog years!) We should all be so lucky. He is missed, but never forgotten.
F LO E Fluid Lightweight Overlay Environment. Revolutionary. FLOE™ is a proprietary polymer modified cement matrix that forms a fluid lightweight overlay when spray applied onto a variety of substrate materials in non-structural applications. Lightweight. FLOE™ slabs with an edge build of 1-1/2” weighs in at 4 lbs per square ft., a weight reduction of almost 80% vs. conventional precast concrete! Resists cracking. Truly flexible; even under deflection conditions! The polymer modified cement comatrix results in unparalleled flexural strength when compared to any traditional precast element. Colorful. The addition of iron oxide pigments allows for almost unlimited color choice! Once cured, the material is diamond honed to expose the rich, understated color and texture associated with polished concrete. Clean. FLOE™ exhibits tremendous stain resistance. Our hand rubbed epoxy & wax system seals the surface against damage from common household chemicals and food items while exhibiting a beautiful low luster sheen. Sustainable. Less is more. On average, FLOE™ reduces the portland cement demand per sq. ft. of coverage by over 90%! Recycled content by weight exceeds 80%. It’s easy to see why FLOE™ is taking green to a higher standard. FLOE™ is LEED applicable for air quality and recycled content..

Sueded Stainless Sueding is a proprietary polishing process that we developed for our stainless steel countertop products to achieve a uniform, velvet like finish. This 7 step hand rubbed finish allows us to fabricate and blend tooling marks and grain direction changes normally associated with most stainless steel finishes. Sueded Stainless is much more fingerprint resistant than standard directional finishes, and if scratched or damaged, can be blended and repaired, in most instances, by the end user, something unheard of with typical #4 finishes. Our countertops are constructed utilizing 14 ga. Type 304 stainless steel wrapped over a NAUF core mdf or melamine substrate. Typical edge thickness is 1.5â€?, but thickness can be specified at virtually any dimension required. Edge treatments range from a simple squared edge, to bullnose or marine edges. Backsplashes can be integrated or separate, stand alone items. All welding is ground and blended to match our sueded finish.. Sueded Stainless sinktops can be fabricated by welding in existing stainless steel sinks from our line, or just about any manufacturer; we re-polish the interior of these sinks to match our proprietary sueded finish. We also specialize in fabricating custom sized pan sinks (fabricated pan sinks are rectangular in shape) for custom applications where a specific width and depth are required.

NON-FERROUS ZINC - COPPER - BRASS The term non-ferrous is used to indicate metals other than iron and alloys that do not contain an appreciable amount of iron. The Soupcan collection features Zinc, Copper, and the combined alloy of both, Brass. These romanticized materials have been used for centuries in other cultures as a material to clad table tops, countertops, bartops and similar items. Unlike stainless steel, non ferrous metals and alloys will oxidize and patina, moving from a lustrous high polish, to an organic, non reflective sheen. The finish is literally alive and will continue to change for years to come. Non-ferrous pieces can be polished at any time (10 days or ten years after installation), to return them to their original pristine state, but the oxidation process will start over again, therefore, most end users prefer the pieces be left to oxidize and patina naturally. Fabrication begins with a 1.5 mm (16 ga. Equivalent) sheet product that is formed and pressed onto a substrate to achieve workable countertop surfaces. These tops can be utilized with drop-in, self-rimming sinks, select undermount or farm sinks, and integrally formed and welded sinks. Backsplashes can be supplied as independent, stand alone pieces, or integrally formed into the countertop for a seamless look. Our non-ferrous collection has also been used for wall panels, ceiling tiles, fireplace surrounds, custom furniture tops, and cabinet facing material.
