Corten Steel Planters

Corten® or Weathering Steel provide warm rich textures not always associated with metal. Beautiful earthy hues complement any environment. Initially the material was developed as a  high tensile strength material where necessary with little or no maintenance.

The patina or rust acts as a protective barrier not penetrating or compromising the structural integrity of the material. Corten® or Weathering Steel has a reactive patina period from 3 to 9 months depending on location and climate. Corten® or Weathering steel produces carbon run off or staining to adjacent materials like stone and concrete. After the initial reactive period the Corten® steel will cure and self seal with very little to no carbon run off.

Please be aware that Corten or Weathering Steel products do not come pre-weathered as standard.
