How are the products finished?
When it comes to finishes you have a choice:
We use high-quality paints to add the finishing touch to your gates, fencing and wall art. With using the shot blasting method on all panels, frames and posts to create a good key for the paint to adhere. We hot zinc stray all products which give 98% protection compared to the 100% you get with galvanising but with none of the mess galvanising leaves behind.
Finally, we apply a top coat of semi-gloss powder coating in a colour of your choice which provides you with a top quality product with a high spec finish which has excellent protection against the corrosion and if maintained properly can last for years to come.
If you are looking for that more personal look to your product you can use our hydro painting service, this is limited to size due to the size of the tank used in this process. 2m x 1m limit. It is the same process as detailed above in powder coating but with an extra coating of paint which adds a unique pattern or design to your product, from a wood grain effect to a marble look finish.
With this extra coat added it provides even more protection against corrosion. We choose the colour of the powder coating that goes with the design or pattern you choose.
How do I maintain the products?
We recommend every four weeks you wash your product using warm soapy water. Regularly applying wax to your product will make the product much easier to clean next time around, as well giving it more protection against the elements.
When cleaning your product check for scratches and paint chips. If you find any areas, you must treat with anti-rust paint. Leaving the exposed area would mean it will only get worse. Catching the problem early would stop the rusting and solve the issue.
How easy are the products to install?
The ease of Installation depends on your ability. If you are comfortable and confident using a tape measure, drill, spirit level and small spanners, then installation should be a breeze.
However, even if you are a beginner, if you follow the methodology, then you should still achieve to same results.
We would recommend if you didn’t feel confident to seek help from a professional. We also offer installation.
Is it cheaper if I buy 2 or more of the same product?
Yes, it is, because of the way we manufacture our products when we make multiples of the same product we can produce them cheaper, and we pass this saving on to the consumer. For example, if you wanted four fence panels all the same design and size, you would receive a price reduction compared to the price you would see on our online shop. To receive a price reduction quotation you would need to contact us by email or telephone as there are too many variations to list on the online shop.
