Frequently asked questions
Corten steel, often referred to as weathering steel, is a unique type of steel alloy designed to develop a protective rust-like layer when exposed to the elements. This distinct characteristic sets it apart from traditional steel alloys.
Corten steel is favored for its several benefits:
- Weather Resistance: Its ability to withstand harsh weather conditions, including rain, snow, and even saltwater environments, makes it ideal for outdoor applications.
- Low Maintenance: Corten steel requires minimal maintenance, as the protective patina eliminates the need for frequent painting or coatings.
- Longevity: Due to its corrosion-resistant properties, Corten steel structures can have a longer lifespan compared to standard steel.
- Aesthetic Appeal: The unique rust-like appearance of Corten steel adds a distinct, rustic charm to architectural and landscaping projects.
The flat Corten screens have a depth of 2mm and cannot be used with our posts or aluminium channels. They are better suited for wall applications or attaching to an existing fence.
The folded screens are made out of the same 2mm material but are folded across the edges to create a 16mm box. This enables you to use the screens with our Aluminium posts or channels.
While Corten steel is relatively low maintenance, occasional cleaning to remove dirt and debris can help maintain its appearance. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaning methods, as they can damage the protective patina.
Yes, the appearance of Corten steel will change over time. Corten steel develops a beautiful rust-like patina as it weathers, which enhances its visual appeal and sets it apart from traditional steel. This natural transformation not only adds character to structures and objects made from Corten steel but also serves as a protective layer, increasing its resistance to further corrosion. Many people appreciate this evolving aesthetic quality, as it gives Corten steel a unique and timeless charm that harmonizes with the environment over time.
Due to the natural rusting characteristics of corten the appearance of 1 screen to others will vary.
