Round metal table tops can now be produced on a fast turn around, these can be supplied in a natural finish or patina aged.

Timber cores for the table tops are produced on our CNC wood router, if bull noses are required the round timber blanks are first put in to a wood lathe and turned down to the specified radius. We can spin table tops up to 50mm thick with a 25mm radius bull nose.

Engraving designs and logos on to the table tops is also an option with our CNC engraving machine. Our CAD department can assist you with design if required.

More information on metal spinning can be found on our spinning web page and patina aging options can be seen in our Flickr gallery.

Copper Door Handles

Update April 2023

Metal Sheets has launched a range of antimicrobial copper Door Handles.

They are manufactured from solid 99.9% pure copper sheet. The door handles can help reduce the transmission of infections from bacteria, yeasts and viruses. Metallic copper has the intrinsic property of being antimicrobial.

The handle was styled in-house and manufactured on our CNC machinery. This Push Pull Copper Door Handle, height 240mm x width 75mm, is aimed at new build or as a replacement for existing less hygienic stainless steel and aluminium handles.

Replacing existing door handles with Metal Sheets Ltd Solid Copper Handles is an extra defense in controlling infection transmission. Locations that would benefit would be factories, offices, restaurants, shops and public buildings for example. Door handles are high traffic touch surfaces.

Matching solid copper Door Kick Plates and Door Finger Push Plates can also be supplied.

This handle is 240mm x 75mm though we can manufacture other sizes to order.

Remember Metal Sheets ltd also manufactures solid copper table tops, copper counters tops and much more.

Installing copper products is an adjunct to good hand hygiene and cleaning practices, not a substitute. Copper provides a speedy and continuous reduction of microbes between touches and between cleans, for the lifetime of the product.

We have a patina studio so we can also patina aged sheets on request.

New Aged Patina Metal Finishes

Antique Copper Patina and Antique Zinc Patina – New Patinas we have developed.

Antique patina is a unique and beautiful finish that can be achieved on both copper and zinc. It’s a process that involves exposing the metal to air, moisture, and other elements.

This process gives the metal a unique look that can’t be replicated with any other type of finish.

Copper patina has been used for centuries to create beautiful decorative pieces, while zinc patina is becoming increasingly popular in modern design. Both types of antique patinas have their own distinct look and appeal, making them perfect for adding character to any decor or furniture piece.

We have developed these finishes in our studio for application to the products we make or for application to zinc sheets and copper sheets for supply direct to the trade. Sheets sizes up to 3m x 1m.

Other patina variations that we apply can be found on this page link. and also in our products galleries on Flickr.

Antimicrobial Copper Touch Surfaces

Metal Sheets Limited has produced this update on copper as an antimicrobial touch surface due to the resurgence of interest in copper caused by the current pandemic.

The following information is available on the internet from reputable sources, but Metal Sheets Ltd make No Public Health Claims.

Copper has the intrinsic property of being antimicrobial, this goes back 1000’s of years. Recent research has indicated that copper surfaces kill many common pathogens including MRSA in less than 2 hours.

Research in 2015 indicates copper is effective against Coronaviruses and a very recent research paper published in March 2020 in the New England Journal of Medicine reports on Corona virus SARS-CoV-2 surface stability on Copper, Stainless Steel and Plastic.

The recent findings indicate the virus remains viable on Stainless Steel for up to 2 days and Plastic for up to 3 days, but only up to 4 hours on Copper though other research shown in NHS guidelines suggests corona viruses remain viable up to 5 days on inanimate objects in air conditioned environments and up to 8 hours on copper.

If you are looking at your work spaces Metal Sheets Ltd manufacture bespoke size retrofitting Copper Covers for Desk Tops, Counter Tops , Table Tops and Food Preparation Stations.

Door Push Plates are common touch surface, most are made of stainless steel, aluminium or plastic. Metal Sheets Ltd manufactures door push plates in copper in bespoke and standard sizes. Different copper thicknesses are available depending on the duty cycle.

Copper Door Kick Plates or Large Copper Door Protection Panels, (up to full door size) available in bespoke sizes.

Metal Sheets Limited supply copper sheet to the trade and to the public. Full sheets, part sheets and cut to size, No minimum sizes. No job too small.
Our copper is 99.9% pure copper.
