For a rustic finish with an edgy industrial feel, Corten steel provides a striking appearance which becomes even more beautiful and authentic over time. Also known as weather-resistant steel, this clever material will naturally begin to weather and develop a protective layer of rust, which produces a beautiful deep orange colour and also provides protection against further corrosion. This process can take several months, but due to Corten steel’s durability and weatherproof nature, it will last beautifully in your garden for years to come.
Available in three sizes, the planters are produced to a standard thickness of 2mm and are equipped as standard with 15mm high feet and drainage holes, as well as a 5-year warranty.
The products are delivered un-rusted
Ensure an adequate drainage (as standard the planters have drainage holes in the bottom), no excess water should remain in the planter because by the combination of oxygen and earth the planter will rust further.
Do not use hydro grains as they hold water
The products must be unpacked immediately after delivery so any moisture between the packaging and the product is not sealed. This can cause irregular rust and stains.
We only use Corten Steel category A type S355JOWP
We recommend ‘Owatrol’ varnish which will stop the planter from rusting any further
