Fabricated from high-quality 2mm thick Corten Steel, with thicker gauge available in bespoke, these stunning planters are perfect for both domestic and commercial applications. The Corten Steel forms a self-protecting rust layer over time, preventing degradation of the planter. These planters also feature drainage holes and small 15mm feet which just slightly raise the base of the planter to allow water to to flow freely out and away from the base of the planter. Trough planters are suitable for a whole host of plants but a particularly impactful planting scheme is achieved when they are filled with bamboo to create a natural barrier with the green foliage giving a striking contrast against the deep amber hues of the Corten Steel. The gorgeous design and style of these Corten Steel Trough Planters by Adezz mean they are perfect as stand alone pieces, when used in sets or when used in combination with our other Corten Steel Planters.

How Your Planter Will Weather

  1. When your planter 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.
  2. As your planter begins to weather, the oily residue will break down.
  3. 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.
  4. 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 the creation 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 is adezz range is a notable addition to that list.

You will see in the gallery and image representing the ageing process that Corten steel goes through, and although this is outlined in the section above – you can see in the image the range of shades these planters take on as they form their protective coating.
