CorTen

CorTen



CorTen Steel, also known as weathering steel, is widely used to clad building and has been used to create famous structures such as The Angel of the North.
It is a steel alloy that contains copper as well as Chromium and Nickel and oxidises giving a rusty appearance. These are made using a lock formed joint and therefore are not watertight.

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.

Planter's sizes are in the format of length/width/height and round planters as Diameter/Height.

These planters will need time to weather therefore please allow approximately 5 weeks for delivery.
