Customized round planters, planting tubes & garden planters

We offer round floor pots that are maintenance-free, durable & made of steel

Create your own floor pots and garden planters where you choose the diameter and height yourself. You can get with or without the bottom. Choose between 3 or 4 mm thick Corten or galvanized. We also offer stylish outdoor planters made of 1.5 mm stainless steel.

Note that our Corten garden planeters are delivered to you with standard steel finnish, which rusts naturally when used outdoors. If you want to speed up the process, you can spray salt water on your steel planter. Then it takes about a week to get a nice rusty surface (we describe how here). If you don’t want a rusty steep planter, we can paint your stylish outdoor planter in any color. We offer RAL Classic as a standard choice, i.e. the codes that contain RAL + four digits. If your floor pots are to be left outdoors, we use galvanized steel and heat it to ensure paint stick to surface. Hence, there is a price difference between the indoor and outdoor varnished version.

Choice of steel for your round pots

We recommend 4 mm thick steel for Corten pots so that they last many years. However, it is not uncommon to manufacture them in 3 mm. Corten itself is a durable steel where the rust that forms during outdoor use protects your floor pots against further corrosion. However, it does not stop completely. If you choose to paint steel, the argument about strong Corten steel to create long-term durability disappears. There we use galvanized steel for these. Despite that, we offer 3 or 4 mm steel as it is a matter of taste if you like thin or slightly stronger steel purely in terms of appearance.

We also offer floor pots in stainless steel. This steel is almost 5 times more expensive. Therefore, we have chosen 1.5 mm as standard for these floor pots. Note that if you want lacquered floor pots, it will take about two extra weeks.

STÅLVARIANTER

Galvad plåt består av stål som belagts med ett tunt lager av zink genom att tillföra elstötar för att få zink att fästa på stålets yta. Denna yta skyddar mot rost. Däremot gör denna yta att det blir något svårare att få färg att fästa. För att få färgen att fästa värmebehandlar man slutprodukten innan lackering.

Rostfritt stål innehåller järn som blandats med minst 10,5% krom. Det finns 5 olika varianter av rostfritt stål där mängden krom är avgörande för vilken sorts rostfritt stål man avser. Beroende på vilka egenskaper som eftersträvas tillförs även andra ämnen utöver krom så som nickel. Detta för att minska risken för rost och tillföra andra egenskaper för att förbättra stålet användningsområde i något avseende.

Corten är en stålblandning som innehåller koppar, krom, mangan och nickel. Denna blandning förhindrar att stål fräts sönder vid utomhusbruk. Detta då det ytskikt av rost som bildas vid växlande väderförhållande blir självskyddande för stålet. Rostprocessen avtar i styrka när det har fått en snygg rostig yta som förhindrar att stålet fräts sönder.

STEEL VARIANTS

Galvanized steel consists of steel that has been coated with a thin layer of zinc by applying electric shocks to cause zinc to adhere to the surface of the steel. This surface protects against rust. However, this surface makes it somewhat more difficult to get paint to stick. In order for the paint to stick, the final product is heat-treated before painting.

Stainless steel contains iron mixed with at least 10.5% chromium. There are 5 different variants of stainless steel where the amount of chromium is decisive for which kind of stainless steel being referred to. Depending on the desired properties, other substances are also added in addition to chromium such as nickel. This is to reduce the risk of rust and add other properties to improve the steel’s area of use in some respect.

Corten is a steel mixture containing copper, chromium, manganese and nickel. This mixture prevents steel from corroding when used outdoors. This since the surface layer of rust that forms during changing weather conditions becomes self-protective for the steel. The rusting process decreases in strength when it has acquired a nice rusty surface that prevents the steel from corroding.
