Powder coated steel planters offer limitless scope for colour customisation, combined with a durable, hard-wearing and flawless surface finish.

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

The planters are fabricated, then ground and polished to produce perfectly smooth and seamless corners and edges; before being sprayed with a fine powder containing pigment, hardeners and bonding agents. They are then oven baked to 200°C to cure the paint finish. Standard colours can be selected from the RAL Classic series (over 200 shades), in a matte, satin or glossy finish. In addition, there are a wide range of specialist powder coat colours and finishes also available.

The planters can be manufactured using a range of different steels, to suit the particular budget and quality requirements of the brief. For example:

  • Planters can be made from high-grade 1.5mm-thick mild steel, which guarantees a sturdy ‘no flex’ planter, with a long life span, for a modest cost.
  • For enhanced longevity, at little extra cost over mild steel, the planters can be made from zinc-plated ‘Zintec’ steel. In terms of cost vs. quality, we consider Zintec to be the best value option for most situations.
  • For the most extreme environments [such as coastal], powder coated planters can be manufactured using stainless steel, rather than mild or Zintec steel.
  • Where weight is an issue, then aluminium can be used instead of steel, and the aluminium planters are then powder coated via the same process.
