How Corten steel is made
Corten steel, often referred to as weathered steel, is made from high quality steel with a special alloy that encourages surface rust. That rust does not damage the product in any way, but instead protects it from the elements.
Corten steel comes from ‘cor’ –rosion resistance and ‘ten’ -sile strength inherent in steel.
The coating on the steel ages over time and exposure to the elements. It takes around a year to fully develop and will produce runoff when you first install it. This runoff can stain so be mindful of where you install the Corten steel edging.
Once the Corten steel has been outside for a few months, that runoff should stop and you should have a beautiful rust-coloured border.
Common uses for Corten steel
Corten steel is an innovative product often used in architecture and sculpture. Think Angel of the North and you’re on the right track. We stock a range of Corten products for the garden, including firepits, raised border boxes, stairs, storage options, tables and a range of other products.
It is also used in building, industry, landscaping and art. The aforementioned Angel of the North or the new Look II Statue in Plymouth created by Sir Antony Gormley are two examples of this material being used.

Corten steel random facts
Corten steel is a special combination of steel and alloy. That alloy adds an exterior coating to the material that rusts when exposed to the elements. That rust takes a while to develop and will stop once the tiny pores in the steel become full of rust.
The end product is weather-resistant and has a much longer lifespan than bare rolled steel.
Please note Corten edging does come in its natural form however we can offer it weathered. Please contact the sales team for more information.
Our Corten steel edging can be installed by being welded together or bolted together by drilling holes and using plates which sit below the finished surface level. You can also weld corten pegs to the back of the steel strips to secure the edging in place.
