finishes - copper blue
Like Corten Steel, our Verdigris finish uses
real metal to create a thin copper plating on
the surface of the fibreglass. This oxidises
naturally in the elements creating a beautiful
blue/green patina overtime. As the finish is
the product of genuinely oxidised copper, it
behaves in exactly the same way meaning the
effect is fragile can be rubbed off accidentally.
So we recommend this finish for an area of low
footfall where the product is unlikely to be
Again like Corten Steel, Verdigris can be fixed
by application of a specially developed lacquer
which makes the surface much more robust
without dramatically changing the effect.
finishes - aged lead
Aged and Antique lead
Our venerable Aged lead finish (the original
‘natural finish’) is still one of the most popular
with garden designers and commercial
landscapers alike. Often also used as a darker
grey concrete effect, aged lead has a dark base
with a mottled whitish bloom over the top, just
like real oxidised lead. It’s an integrated finish,
meaning the colour is fixed into the product
when made, but like terracotta, the white
bloom can be accidentally removed so some
care in handling and maintenance is required.
All aged lead products have a different, natural,
appearance and will change with the weather
as the outer product surface is porous and will
take up moisture from the rain and in the air.
