FINAL EXTERIOR BROCHURE 171120 - Flipbook - Page 10
For us, the real beauty of fiberglass is in the finishing. We have spent the last 35
years devising new and ever more ingenious ways to coat our products so that
they have the look, the feel, the very essence of a dazzling array of natural stone,
terracotta, concrete, earthenware and lovingly aged metals – but with none of their
drawbacks and all the many advantages of fibreglass.
That’s not to take anything away from our paint process, which can offer Gloss, Satin and Matt
finishing to commercial paintshop standard using the highest grade, most weather resistant paint
on the market today. We work in all RAL and BS colours as well as Pantone (PMS) and have matches
for almost every other paint manufacturers colour ranges. Painted fibreglass is indistinguishable
from powder coated steel and aluminium.
For extra long life, our Textured finishes are achieved by overcoating the surface of the product
with a thick layer of self coloured liquid resin that bonds directly to it forming a weatherproof
barrier that should remain unchanged for many years in even the harshest environments. While the
colour choice is more restricted, this is an outstanding finish for commercial projects.
In the following pages we showcase some of extraordinarily realistic ‘natural’ finishes we have
developed. Swatches are available and are guaranteed to impress.
Corten Steel (rust)
Our signature finish. The result of many years
of development that has produced a rust effect
that where we are able to control the mount
of rusting, the depth of colour and the patina.
We can also fix that moment in time, stopping
further rusting and preventing rusty runoff
onto finished surfaces.
We guarantee that no one will be able to tell
that your fibreglass planter or seat is not made
from real Corten steel. For roof gardens and
terraces in particular this is a game changing
finish. But we recommend it for anywhere
Corten steel was to be used – Fiibreglass is
more cost effective, much lighter, just as strong
and every bit as long lasting.
While other faux rust finishes are available, we
are the ONLY landscape product manufacturer
using this trade marked finish. For the ultimate
in ‘unreal steel’ its got to be Livingreen.
