Corten is widely used by garden designers, landscapers, architects and builders. This weathering steel can be used for cladding buildings, garden furniture and planters as well as other outdoor features. Corten can be welded and easily painted. Corten is also known to some as weathering steel, as the oxidisation process which occurs when it is left exposed to atmospheric conditions and the elements, results in an orange/brown effect or ‘rust’ coloured layer. This protects the metal underneath making it durable and resistant to corrosion, which is why it is a metal of choice for landscape architects. In fact, Corten has been used for some iconic sculptures around the UK.
What does Corten look like when it is delivered?
