Corten steel sheet (also known as weathering steel) is instantly identifiable thanks to its rich, bright orange tones. Originally developed for building coal carriages in 1930s America, it is now one of the most stylish and durable metals on the market. Corten steel plate might look like it's rusty, but thanks to clever manipulation in its processing, the outer oxidisation actually protects the steel from further corrosion, as well as making it look very good indeed.
The picture shows our natural/raw Corten sheet when first purchased and typically what it looks like after the weathering process, which takes between 3-10 months after exposure to the elements.

The distinctive 5-bar pattern on diamond plate makes it sought after not just for performance, but for style, too: our aluminium treadplate is often used in interior design and car modification, as well as in industry.

Corten steel is also known as weathering steel, or COR-TEN steel. It is specially formulated to provide the strength and stability of traditional steel with an attractive patina. A thin layer of oxide forms on the outside surface of the steel, giving it that attractive burnt orange colour of rust.
This layer is thin and does not affect the material’s strength or longevity which is why it is so popular. In fact, that oxidised layer helps to protect the material from the elements and negates the need for finishing, which is why it was invented in the first place!

Get your garden into the festive spirit with our bespoke Corten Christmas trees!
This festive period in Santa’s workshop we are making bespoke Christmas trees to order. The Corten steel trees are a fantastic addition to any garden, looking great in all the Great British weather has to offer us, and with custom-made sizing, they can be made to suit any space! Decorate them your own way (you could even get the kids to help!)
The Corten Christmas trees arrive in the natural grey finish and they will then rust over time. Left out in the elements it takes a few days to see them start to weather then up to 6 months to rust fully and seal. During the weathering period, it is recommended to keep the trees outside as the rust can transfer and may stain garments. To keep your mind at rest – all Corten trees are deburred meaning the edges are not sharp, so they are safe for children and pets.
