Corten Sign Information
Corten steel signs have become hugely popular in recent years. Their rustic industrial aesthetic that’s particularly attractive for commercial premises, hotels, restaurants, and homes.
At Metal Sheets Ltd, we have an experienced team of fabricators who can help you design your sign and create it to the highest standards using state-of-the-art computer-controlled machinery.
We work closely with our clients to achieve the best possible design, and if you have your own DWG or DXF files, we can incorporate those directly into our cutting software.
After fabrication your sign passes to our patina studio, where our craftsmen use a range of methods and processes to produce varying degrees of weathering and appearance. Corten steel can be weathered to produce a spectrum of colors from bright oranges to deep browns.
Once weathered, your rusted Corten steel sign can be installed straight away, or we can apply a wax or lacquer finish if you’re using it indoors. The wax finish will darken the rust patina, while lacquer and wax are used to prevent rust transfer onto clothing if the sign is likely to be touched.
Please bear in mind that when you locate your sign outdoors, some run-off of rust is to be expected for some time until the surface fully weathers.
