Corten Steel Tower Planters by Senzzo
Our fantastic Corten Steel Tower Planters by Senzzo are a brilliant and cost-effective way of adding colour and height to your garden. Available in three size options with varying heights, using these planters is an easy way to access new levels in your garden giving a fresh look with little effort. Fabricated from high-quality, 1.5mm thick Corten Steel they are long-lasting items with built in weather-resistance. This is down to the fact that Corten Steel forms a self-protecting rust coating over time which prevents degradation of the inner steel meaning these planters are perfectly suited to life outside. Tall planters suit a range of flora but often look most effective when filled with either trailing plants or tall slender ones both options accentuating the elegant style of the planter. A brilliant example being Lemon Cypress Trees which will give a stunning bright green that contrasts beautifully against the amber of the Corten Steel. Tower planters can be used in a variety of ways for example, flanking a doorway or garden path or to border an area of decking. Placing them alone or in sets can create a big impact with little input or alternatively using them in combination with our other Corten Steel Planters can give a beautiful flow of Corten orange throughout an outdoor space. These planters qualify for Free Delivery throughout the UK mainland.

How Your Planter Will Weather
When your Corten Steel Tower Planters by Senzzo arrives it will depending, on when it was manufactured will be the colour of freshly manufactured steel, with a dark oily coating or in a stage of patina. As your Corten Steel planter begins to weather, the oily residue will break down.
Your planter will begin to change colour, during this stage the ‘run-off’ may stain stone or concrete surfaces that it comes into contact with.
After 9 months, some ‘run-off’ may still occur.
Corten Steel (or weathering steel) is an alloy that naturally forms a rust coating the over the first 9 months or so of it being exposed to the weather. Interestingly, due to the composition of this special alloy, this rust coating forms a protective layer that prevents further rusting. The steel underneath remains unimpaired as the outer layer continues to protect and regenerate as it exposed to water and oxygen.
One of the most striking landmarks in Britain, The Angel of the North, by the artist Anthony Gormly is made of COR-TEN weathering steel. It is one of many remarkable structures in the world made of weathering steel including but not limited to the Barclays Centre, The Chicago Picasso Sculpture and the Australian centre for contemporary art. COR-TEN (CORrosion resistance TENsile strength) weathering steel was first invented by United States Steel for use in the manufacture of ore transports. Since it was created in the 1930’s, a slew of artists and designers have seen the potential of Corten weathering steel to create installations of great style and beauty. This Senzzo range is a notable addition to that list.
