How Your Product Will Weather?
  1. When your product 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 Corten Steel planter begins to weather, the oily residue will break down.
  3. Your product 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.
The Forno Grill  brings your kitchen outside. Prepare healthy meals using the BBQ grill and roasting plate. The round, wide and thick plate varies in temperature, increasing towards the middle, enabling you to manage your cooking requirements. This versatile product allows for a range of different ingredients to be served. The hotplate can be used as a teppanyaki or plancha. Use charcoal to fire your BBQ. Wood can also be used to transform your BBQ into a fire pit. Assure to use well seasoned wood such as Beech, Oak and Berch.  We recommend you do not use resinous wood such as Pine. The Forno Square Grill can be used on every surface through the use of the adjustable solid legs. An air button will control the flow of making, making it adjustable for all your cooking needs. The warm rust colour creates an industrial feel to your garden. Robust and strong, the square shape leaves an lasting impression in your outdoor space. How to use During the first use it is important to make a small fire for the first 25 minutes before increasing it. This will cause the roasting plate to become significantly hotter on the underside. This temperature difference will concave the plate slightly. This process is no long necessary after the first use. After a few uses the oil will have burned into the plate, this is when the BBQ will work best. This will also protect the plate from rusting when the BBQ is not in use. For the best results, use an oil with a high degree of combustion such as sunflower oil. Cleaning is not necessary; the excess oils and food can be scrapped into the fire and a damp cloth can wipe down the roasting plate. After around 25-30 minutes the inside edge of the roasting plate will reach a temperature of 275 – 300°c. 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 they prevents further rusting. The steel underneath remains unimpaired as the outer layer continues to protect and regenerate as it exposed to water and oxygen.

What our customers say about us

Practical uses:

Galvanised steel is a versatile material with a wide range of applications, showcasing its durability and adaptability in numerous industries. From automotive components to roofing, inner and outer wall sheeting, sheds, and construction parts, galvanised steel proves its qualities. It also finds utility in making sturdy buckets, planters, wheelbarrows, and drainpipes, while its use extends to tubes, sections, and machine-building applications. The material's resilience makes it a preferred choice for domestic appliances, electrical goods, and agricultural machinery as well, demonstrating its ability to withstand the demands of both indoor and outdoor environments. It can also be painted to give it colour, but preparation is key and a specialist primer and metal paint should be used when doing so.

How it's made

The production process involves passing sheet steel through a bath of red-hot, molten zinc. This results in the formation of zinc oxide when oxygen reacts with pure zinc. The zinc oxide then reacts with carbon dioxide to produce zinc carbonate. This newly formed coating serves as the protective layer, shielding the steel from the weather. In the past, galvanised steel could be recognised by its distinctive star or spangle pattern, a result of the treatment process on the metal's surface. As contemporary tastes lean towards smoother surfaces over the years, the spangles have become invisible to the naked eye on our galvanised steel sheets. However, we recommend taking a look at our spangled galvanised steel if you’re looking for metal with the traditional sparkling snowflake pattern. Random fact: The process of galvanisation is named after Luigi Galvani, the Italian chemist who discovered electromagnetism in 1781 during an experiment on frogs’ legs.

We understand that every project is unique. That’s why we offer a free cutting service to cut your galvanised steel sheets to the exact size you need, with no wastage.

Metal kick plates from Buy Metal Online are designed to protect doors in high-traffic areas. They provide a tough, resistant surface where feet, trolleys, dollies and carts can open doors without marking or damaging them. Metal kick plates attach to the bottom of doors, where you would kick, push or bang a door open when you’re working quickly or carrying loads. It’s a small but important way to protect the building and its doors from damage.

Key qualities of metal kick plates

Metal kick plates are manufactured to a high standard from a range of different metals including aluminium and steel. Our metal kick plates are strong and durable with key qualities including:
  1. Protection: Metal kick plates are affixed to the bottom of any door to protect it from impact. Ideal in warehouses, factories, schools, hospitals and anywhere doors often get marked or damaged.

  2. Flexible: Metal kick plates can be cut to any size or shape and be used for protective or decorative purposes.

  3. Low maintenance: Screw or glue in place, keep clean and easily wipe off or polish out any marks or scratches. They are simple and very low maintenance.

  4. Cost-effective: Make doors last longer with a simple metal sheet and keep them looking good at the same time.

How to use metal kick plates

Metal kick plates can be attached to the bottom of a door to enable hands-free opening with feet or allow doors to be opened with material handling equipment like dollies and trolleys. These are ideal for businesses or institutions where doors tend to get marked or damaged. They are also suitable for use in the home. The metal plates absorb the brunt of the impact, extending the lifespan of your doors and reducing the need for repairs or repainting. These kick plates are also easy to clean compared to challenging scuffs, scratches or dents in doors.

You can also bond them onto the door with a strong adhesive if you prefer.

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. There’s no need to paint this one and it just looks better with age, no wonder designers love it. For years, Corten has been the metal of choice for containers and other shipping elements. More recently, though, it’s become the material of choice for many artists, architects and interior designers. We’re proud to supply talented artists and sculptors with Corten for their gorgeous projects, including UK-based Eddie Roberts, who works the metal into stunning creations. As well as art, Corten steel cladding is extremely popular and it is often used for buildings, giving it a tough coating against the elements and an industrial-looking edge. Recently, our weathering steel was used both inside and out for the makeover of The Western, a stylish Brighton bar.

Just email us for your Corten Steel prices. Whether you’re looking for stunning aesthetics, weather performance or a wonderful mix of both, it delivers. How it’s made: Weathering steel is an alloy, which is what makes it so resistant to the elements. The addition of nickel, copper and chromium at the production stage means that over time, a protective patina will develop on the surface of the metal. Good for: Cladding, containers, marine transportation, bridges, general architecture, interiors, art installations, water features, sculptures, planters and many more. Benefits:
  • Hard-wearing
  • Low maintenance
  • Weatherproof
  • Striking looks

We wanted to fabricate Corten steel doors and this company shipped metal really quickly to Northern Scotland, a part of the world which many companies refuse to deliver to. The fact that they will send large sheets of steel here is greatly appreciated. The Corten steel panels cost was also very reasonable. I will definitely not hesitate or shop around next time, I will Buymetalonline.” – Peter Thompson, Trustpilot, December 2015.

This magnetic board comes in a huge range of sizes, as it’s made from galvanised steel, it is equipped to handle all the weather elements making it a great for both indoor and outdoor projects. Thinking of installing a notice board at home or in the office?  Then our galvanised magnetic notice boards are perfect for you. Our customers use these for displaying photographs, children’s artwork, staff notices and important documents.   The sheets are 1.0 mm thick. This product isn’t magnetic itself, so it won’t pick up metal objects, however it is the ideal thickness for both children’s magnets, industrial magnets and anything in between.  Whether you’re looking to keep your bills in order, display your precious photographs or give your living room an industrial edge, the opportunities for magnetic boards are endless. If you can’t see the size you’re looking for in the box above, just let us know; we’re always happy to cut to cut metal to size – and there’s no minimum order, so your magnetic notice board can be delivered just the size you want. How it’s made: Galvanised steel is made when steel is fortified with a powerful layer of zinc. The metal is dipped in an extremely hot bath of molten zinc, which causes a chemical reaction, resulting in a protective layer of zinc which makes the finished product supremely tough. Whilst the zinc that’s added to steel in the galvanisation process is not magnetic, the steel itself is. The amount of zinc used is so little that it doesn’t affect the performance of the steel, meaning magnets will stick to it. Good for: Notice boards, photography displays, shop displays, interiors or anywhere else where a surface that attracts magnets is required. Painting: Galvanised steel can be coated in paint, but make sure you use a specialist product and primer. Benefits:
  • Attracts magnets
  • Huge range of sizes available
  • Free cutting service
  • Sturdy and long-lasting
Please note: We do not offer pre-drilled holes in the corners of the metal What our customers say about us: “Even though the original order arrived damaged the service was fantastic. It was corrected and the new pieces delivered in double quick time. The delivery man was very helpful in moving the heavy pallet for me. I e-mailed a question about the metal galvanisation and I was called back almost instantly with an answer. I was very impressed by the service I received and would fully recommend them.” – Stuart, Trustpilot, December 2015. Random fact: The largest collection of fridge magnets in the world belongs to Louise Greenfarb of Henderson, Las Vegas, United States. She is also known, imaginatively, as ‘Magnet Lady’. Her collection began in the seventies and gradually spread; as well as the hundreds of magnets adorning the front of her fridge, there are novelties and souvenirs on other appliances, doors and all over her home – a grand total of 45,000 magnets.

As weathering begins, the residue breaks down and the rusty colour will start to appear. During this time, any run-off may stain stone or concrete surfaces. 3. After weathering (around 6-9 months), run-off may still occur but it will be minimal.

How Your Product Will Weather?
  1. When your product 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 Corten Steel planter begins to weather, the oily residue will break down.
  3. Your product 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.
The Forno Grill  brings your kitchen outside. Prepare healthy meals using the BBQ grill and roasting plate. The round, wide and thick plate varies in temperature, increasing towards the middle, enabling you to manage your cooking requirements. This versatile product allows for a range of different ingredients to be served. The hotplate can be used as a teppanyaki or plancha. Use charcoal to fire your BBQ. Wood can also be used to transform your BBQ into a fire pit. Assure to use well seasoned wood such as Beech, Oak and Berch.  We recommend you do not use resinous wood such as Pine. The Forno Square Grill can be used on every surface through the use of the adjustable solid legs. An air button will control the flow of making, making it adjustable for all your cooking needs. The warm rust colour creates an industrial feel to your garden. Robust and strong, the square shape leaves an lasting impression in your outdoor space. How to use During the first use it is important to make a small fire for the first 25 minutes before increasing it. This will cause the roasting plate to become significantly hotter on the underside. This temperature difference will concave the plate slightly. This process is no long necessary after the first use. After a few uses the oil will have burned into the plate, this is when the BBQ will work best. This will also protect the plate from rusting when the BBQ is not in use. For the best results, use an oil with a high degree of combustion such as sunflower oil. Cleaning is not necessary; the excess oils and food can be scrapped into the fire and a damp cloth can wipe down the roasting plate. After around 25-30 minutes the inside edge of the roasting plate will reach a temperature of 275 – 300°c. 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 they prevents further rusting. The steel underneath remains unimpaired as the outer layer continues to protect and regenerate as it exposed to water and oxygen.

Why buy from Buy Metal Online?

What our customers say about us

Practical uses:

Galvanised steel is a versatile material with a wide range of applications, showcasing its durability and adaptability in numerous industries. From automotive components to roofing, inner and outer wall sheeting, sheds, and construction parts, galvanised steel proves its qualities. It also finds utility in making sturdy buckets, planters, wheelbarrows, and drainpipes, while its use extends to tubes, sections, and machine-building applications. The material's resilience makes it a preferred choice for domestic appliances, electrical goods, and agricultural machinery as well, demonstrating its ability to withstand the demands of both indoor and outdoor environments. It can also be painted to give it colour, but preparation is key and a specialist primer and metal paint should be used when doing so.

How it's made

The production process involves passing sheet steel through a bath of red-hot, molten zinc. This results in the formation of zinc oxide when oxygen reacts with pure zinc. The zinc oxide then reacts with carbon dioxide to produce zinc carbonate. This newly formed coating serves as the protective layer, shielding the steel from the weather. In the past, galvanised steel could be recognised by its distinctive star or spangle pattern, a result of the treatment process on the metal's surface. As contemporary tastes lean towards smoother surfaces over the years, the spangles have become invisible to the naked eye on our galvanised steel sheets. However, we recommend taking a look at our spangled galvanised steel if you’re looking for metal with the traditional sparkling snowflake pattern. Random fact: The process of galvanisation is named after Luigi Galvani, the Italian chemist who discovered electromagnetism in 1781 during an experiment on frogs’ legs.

Metal kick plates from Buy Metal Online are designed to protect doors in high-traffic areas. They provide a tough, resistant surface where feet, trolleys, dollies and carts can open doors without marking or damaging them. Metal kick plates attach to the bottom of doors, where you would kick, push or bang a door open when you’re working quickly or carrying loads. It’s a small but important way to protect the building and its doors from damage.

Key qualities of metal kick plates

Metal kick plates are manufactured to a high standard from a range of different metals including aluminium and steel. Our metal kick plates are strong and durable with key qualities including:
  1. Protection: Metal kick plates are affixed to the bottom of any door to protect it from impact. Ideal in warehouses, factories, schools, hospitals and anywhere doors often get marked or damaged.

  2. Flexible: Metal kick plates can be cut to any size or shape and be used for protective or decorative purposes.

  3. Low maintenance: Screw or glue in place, keep clean and easily wipe off or polish out any marks or scratches. They are simple and very low maintenance.

  4. Cost-effective: Make doors last longer with a simple metal sheet and keep them looking good at the same time.

How to use metal kick plates

Metal kick plates can be attached to the bottom of a door to enable hands-free opening with feet or allow doors to be opened with material handling equipment like dollies and trolleys. These are ideal for businesses or institutions where doors tend to get marked or damaged. They are also suitable for use in the home. The metal plates absorb the brunt of the impact, extending the lifespan of your doors and reducing the need for repairs or repainting. These kick plates are also easy to clean compared to challenging scuffs, scratches or dents in doors. All you need to do is prepare the surface of the door, drill holes in the kick plate where required and screw it into place. You can also bond them onto the door with a strong adhesive if you prefer.

Originally developed for building coal carriages in 1930s America, it is now one of the most stylish and durable metals on the market.

There’s no need to paint this one and it just looks better with age, no wonder designers love it. For years, Corten has been the metal of choice for containers and other shipping elements. More recently, though, it’s become the material of choice for many artists, architects and interior designers. We’re proud to supply talented artists and sculptors with Corten for their gorgeous projects, including UK-based Eddie Roberts, who works the metal into stunning creations. As well as art, Corten steel cladding is extremely popular and it is often used for buildings, giving it a tough coating against the elements and an industrial-looking edge.

Just email us for your Corten Steel prices. Whether you’re looking for stunning aesthetics, weather performance or a wonderful mix of both, it delivers.

Our customers use these for displaying photographs, children’s artwork, staff notices and important documents.   The sheets are 1.0 mm thick. This product isn’t magnetic itself, so it won’t pick up metal objects, however it is the ideal thickness for both children’s magnets, industrial magnets and anything in between.  Whether you’re looking to keep your bills in order, display your precious photographs or give your living room an industrial edge, the opportunities for magnetic boards are endless. If you can’t see the size you’re looking for in the box above, just let us know; we’re always happy to cut to cut metal to size – and there’s no minimum order, so your magnetic notice board can be delivered just the size you want. How it’s made: Galvanised steel is made when steel is fortified with a powerful layer of zinc. The metal is dipped in an extremely hot bath of molten zinc, which causes a chemical reaction, resulting in a protective layer of zinc which makes the finished product supremely tough. Whilst the zinc that’s added to steel in the galvanisation process is not magnetic, the steel itself is. The amount of zinc used is so little that it doesn’t affect the performance of the steel, meaning magnets will stick to it. Good for: Notice boards, photography displays, shop displays, interiors or anywhere else where a surface that attracts magnets is required. Painting: Galvanised steel can be coated in paint, but make sure you use a specialist product and primer. Benefits:
  • Attracts magnets
  • Huge range of sizes available
  • Free cutting service
  • Sturdy and long-lasting
Please note: We do not offer pre-drilled holes in the corners of the metal What our customers say about us: “Even though the original order arrived damaged the service was fantastic.

I e-mailed a question about the metal galvanisation and I was called back almost instantly with an answer. I was very impressed by the service I received and would fully recommend them.” – Stuart, Trustpilot, December 2015. Random fact: The largest collection of fridge magnets in the world belongs to Louise Greenfarb of Henderson, Las Vegas, United States. She is also known, imaginatively, as ‘Magnet Lady’. Her collection began in the seventies and gradually spread; as well as the hundreds of magnets adorning the front of her fridge, there are novelties and souvenirs on other appliances, doors and all over her home – a grand total of 45,000 magnets.
