Our Corten steel drain covers are one of our best products along with the Stainless steel options.
Corten steel is a weathering steel, it will form a smooth protective layer of oxide and then this protects the item from further corrosion. If the item is scratched, it's no problem as a new skin is promptly formed over this area.
These covers will start off a light brown and over time this will darken to a deeper brown colour. The surface should remain smooth and the item will look pleasing and similar to a cast iron product. We also offer Stainless covers in 6mm, 10mm, 12mm and 20mm thickness in our shop if you prefer a lighter colour.
Corten steel drain covers need no painting as they won't corrode and will last an extremely long time.
We make covers in 6, 10 and 20mm thickness. Larger covers may not be available in the thinnest sizes.
Painting is an option. Although the paint will wear off over time so this option should only be used for vastly out of the way locations such as under down pipes or on flat roofs. We would suggest not choosing the painted option for a Corten cover, and as such we don't always stock all sizes ready painted and this may cause a 2-5 day delay in shipping your order.
