Once we have performed the required task and delivered your metalwork to our usual high standard, there are several finishing options.
Powder Coating is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. It is a particularly tough, durable finish which ensures the metal will last a lot longer than it would if left untreated.
You won’t be surprised, then, to learn that we use it for pieces that are going to be outdoors and facing the worst of the elements. Garden gates, balconies, external shop fittings – they all get this hard-wearing treatment.
Wet Spray is the more conventional finish, where liquid paint is applied.
We have both manual and automated equipment at our workshop and can supply any colour – we’ll even mix them to get the finished shade exactly right.
One customer wanted a shop fitting to look like copper without actually being copper, which was too expensive. We created the piece from mild steel and finished it with copper-coloured paint.
Mirror Finish is another finish we apply only to stainless steel.
The surface is polished to a high shine and can be used for a wide variety of applications, including furniture edging.
Brushed Finish also called a “dull polish”. The metal is scrubbed with an abrasive surface.
We do this only with stainless steel; it can be applied to aluminium, but then you need a lacquer to stop the metal going white.
