The finish on our steel is a critical feature for the design richness and durability of the product. For each of our projects we offer a palette of patina choices. Each patina is crafted to express its own variety in texture and color. Our effort is to convey the feel of steel or the lustre of bronze as a living worn medium. Once the tone is set, we topcoat with a clear satin sheen clear coat to add durability for every day use.

Zinc Coating

 

For our steel products, all of our components are fully zinc coated after final welding, drilling and machining are completed. The zinc coating is a time proven application that assures maximum product life. The method that we use for zinc coating was developed to apply superior coatings on oversized structures like bridges and boats to secure the protection of the metals. Our zinc and patina coated applications have been through accelerated testing and performed hundreds of hours beyond the "full life" thresholds set by the ASTM standard testing method.

Patina

After we complete the zinc coating we begin our proprietary patina processing to create the special colors and textures in our finish. The patina finish application is a combination of methodology and artistic sense. The craftsmen that apply these patina's have an artistic touch that makes each surface unique. The effort is to create a blend of color and texture that give the product a living character and warmth.

We provide a number of sample colors and textures for evaluation. Finished colors may vary from the sample colors as a result of the organic method of these applications.
