Why choose corten?

Corten is sometimes referred to as weathering steel, as the steel is designed to form a protective rust layer, turning a natural orange-brown colour and providing contrast to lawns and planting.

Corten, with its aesthetically pleasing rust-like patina, should be seen as a reassuringly expensive investment in your garden. It is weatherproof and corrosion-resistant so the naturally seasoned protective coating will last forever!

Our top-grade 3mm thick steel/copper alloy has a high tensile strength, a minimum of 6 months’ natural surface oxidation, and can be CNC machined to create custom shapes and patterns. Use our distressed antique, architectural corten to create interest in your garden.
