It is a steel alloy that contains copper as well as Chromium and Nickel and oxidises giving a rusty appearance. This can be lock formed together to create planters.
Due to the very nature of the material these planters will stain patios, decking and clothing. We can reduce the chances of stain marks to clothing and hands by lacquering the outer surfaces once the Corten has corroded sufficiently. There is an additional charge for this service, the lacquer can be a gloss or matt finish. We recommend all Corten Planters are recessed into the decking or paviours to prevent visual staining, as the corrosion process will continue for 6 to 12 months.
Please note these metal planters do not have a return lip, only a folded safety edge, which will not maintain a perfect circle. Please see our fully welded metal planters if this detail is required.
These planters will need time to weather therefore please allow approximately 5 weeks for delivery.
