Matte Black Painted Finish
This is a good quality spray painted primer designed to act as a base coat for finishing by the customer with paint suitable for exterior metal surfaces. Please note that this primer alone is not weatherproof and will need to be painted before attaching any fixings or placing outdoors. If you require a maintenance free finish we would recommend hot dip galvanizing and powder coating. Unless your ironworks are galvanized rust will begin to show through over time. This is not a fault but is a natural trait of steel.
Hot Dip Galvanizing
This is a protective coating that is carried out to British Standard BS EN ISO 1461. It provides rustproof protection for 50+ years. Please note that hot dip galvanized products have a bright silver/grey appearance that, if left unpainted, will weather over time. Our galvanized products may have a slightly uneven colour and texture due to the fine finishing we carry out by hand which we call linishing. We do this to smooth out small burrs or shards of zinc that naturally occur during the galvanizing process. This does not diminish the protective properties provided by the galvanizing. Please bear this in mind if you order galvanized only products that you are not going to paint.
If you would like a black finish you can either coat them with paint suitable for exterior metal surfaces or choose powder coating prior to checkout. Other colours of powder coating are available on request, please email us with your requirements. Our top specification finish is hot dip galvanized and powder coated which provides an extremely durable and maintenance free finish.
Provides a much harder finish than conventional paint. Our powder coating is applied to an average thickness of 80 microns, exceeds the industry standard of 60 microns and complies with British Standards BS EN ISO 13438. Comes in a high quality black satin finish giving a lustrous sheen. Other colours of powder coating are available on request, please email us with your requirements.
