Material and Finish Options
The aluminum garden planters are made from marine grade .090” thick 5052 aluminum. This aluminum alloy is light weight, exceptionally strong, and guarantees a long lasting, rust and maintenance free product. This material is the perfect solution for highly corrosive environments, or for placement on porous or easily stained surfaces. Available in 8 standard powder coat finishes as well as the oxidized zinc patina finish. The oxidized aluminium zinc finish is a proprietary process where the aluminum is treated so that it will naturally patina to represent the look of old world zinc but with out the toxicity of lead. Custom colors and sizes are available.
Cor-Ten, or weathering steel, planters are made from .074” thick 606 alloy Cor-Ten steel. Common in architectural elements, this steel alloy is used for its unique rustic appearance and protective weathering qualities. This ultra durable material is perfect for all indoor or outdoor environments, as well as for commercial projects. Cor-ten products are available only in a natural rust patina finish, and will continue to patina and change over time.
