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.

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.
