Hot Dip Galvanised Planters


Hot dipped galvanised steel planters and plant pots are the toughest and most resilient of all mild steel planters, with a serviceable lifespan typically of 20-30 years.

All our galvanised steel manufacture is to-order and to your specification, and we do not hold in stock a standard range of shapes and sizes. 

Planters in this material have a distictive industrial aesthetic.  Significant variability is to be expected in the final look which results from the galvanisation process.

Our  galvanised planters are fabricated from high-grade 1.5mm-thick mild sheet steel, and then faired externally to produce smooth corners and edges. The completed planters are immersed in a molten zinc bath, giving significantly enhanced corrosion protection. The final look is bright and metallic silver-grey, with a slight shimmer from variations in the surface shading.

IOTA custom-manufactures hot dipped galvanised steel planters in any shape or size, from simple geometric shapes to complex architectural designs. CAD models can also be generated for approval against a design brief.
