Bar tops and table tops in natural finish copper, zinc, brass and bronze have the added benefit of being antibacterial.
More about Metals & Patina
Copper, Brass, Zinc, Pewter and Bronze are all living metals and they change appearance by reacting with their environment, they age naturally by acquiring a patina. This is part of the charm of these metals. So natural bar tops and table tops will change with use, they get scuffs from use, they are washed,
they have spillages, they are handled, all this with time creates patina and character. Natural/Satin is the authentic starting point whereby a natural patina develops over time, the application of a basic patina like a light aged creates a starting point away from new.
We have a tough clear matt lacquer which we apply to preserve the factory applied patina on many of our products when requested. In a high traffic busy bar though we would not recommend a lacquer finish, we think it best to leave the metal to do its own thing and go rustic.
Patinas like the blue’s or green’s have to be lacquered to seal the surface, these colours tend to be used mainly for feature/display tables, bar front panels, wall art etc.
All table tops can be lacquered to preserve their look though obviously they need to be treated with some care when in use.
Copper, Brass and Zinc Table tops and bar tops can be cleaned with soapy water then drying, bees wax or Renaissance wax can be applied to reduce the rate of patina if they are natural. Mirror finishes can be maintained with Brasso type products. Natural & satin can be refreshed and patina removed if required using scotch-brite for example to return the metal to a satin finish.
Key Features of our table tops and bar tops

- Standard tops are manufactured by wrapping metal sheet around the sides and back underneath the ply. There are no screw heads or sharp edges or clothing snags.
- Corners are fully welded and cleaned smooth. Unless you want a more rustic look.
