You can browse our website, or email firstname.lastname@example.org to speak to our sales team for advice.
Does Galvanised steel rust?
Galvanized steel does not rust, the process of galvanising applies a protective zinc coating to the steel to protect it.
Is Steel Magnetic?
Yes, all of our mild steel sheets are magnetic. Some stainless steel is not magnetic due to the treatment process used in making it. Austenitic stainless steel is usually used industrially and is not magnetic, however ferritic stainless steel is mainly used in home appliances like fridges and is magnetic.
Do you sell magnetic boards?
We sell a variety of custom made sizes of magnetic boards. Our magnetic boards are available in steel or white finishes. For a sleeker look select our glass white effect magnetic boards that come with chrome effect fittings, pens, magnets and an eraser. Contact us with your requirements.
How would you attach magnetic boards to the wall?
Hanging a magnetic board in your home or office space will usually require a drill, wall plugs and screws. The type and length of screws and plugs you use will depend on what the wall is made of.
Do you drill holes in the metal or round the corners of the sheet?
No, This is not something we offer.
Do you supply screws and fixings for the steel?
No, we do not supply the fixings. You should be able to buy these from a local DIY store.
Can you come out to my property to measure and install?
No, we do not provide this service.
Do you supply weathered Corten?
We supply weathered Corten in 1.5mm and 3mm, please email email@example.com for prices.
What colour is the Corten?
Raw Corten steel is grey/silver in colour. Over a period of 3-10 months the outer coating oxidises as it weathers creating the distinct orange colour it is famous for.
Will the steel I buy rust and the colour run?
This all depends on what steel you buy, Please contact the sales team to discuss further.
