Before you see our end products, they begin much differently. Each piece of furniture we create starts with individual components that are then soaked in solvent to remove all machine oil contaminant from the external surface and internal cavity. This oil is dirty and can weep from fittings if not eliminated. Galvanised steel is scrubbed with Scotch Brite to make the surface clean and free of most galvanising lumps machine scratches. When all the pieces are gathered, the building process starts, using large vices and forged wrenches to ensure that the pipe’s tapered thread wont come undone when it’s finished.
Pipe surface and care
When ordered Flat black painted the item is spray painted after assembly so as to cover all threads and hide any tool marks. Our attention to detail when creating our products, guarantees the highest quality finish. Both galvanised pipe and Flat Black painted pipe will remain rust free for may years but Raw black steel will require surface protection. Black steel components are protected from rusting with a light coating of Linseed oil that, when dry provides a carbon black lustre and protects from surface rusting. This can be re-applied to keep in good condition.
