Indoor item

Standard Finish:
This means the item will be painted in black (metal) paint.  If the item is to be used for fires it will be painted in an appropriate 'for fire use' black paint unless otherwise stated on item page.

Non Standard Item - (bespoke)

If you require an alternative finish / size / specification, to what is described on ‘item page ’then this would be described as ‘non-standard’.

Listed below are some suggestions of ‘non-standard’.

Finish

  • Have item galvanised (for best protection against rust), this leaves a silvery colour.
  • Have item galvanised, then painted on top.
  • Have item painted on alternative colour (you would need to inform us of paint make and colour required) and this would need to be a product which we can purchase locally and be specifically for use on metal.
  • Leave item in its natural state - either so you can paint it yourself or so item can be left to the elements to give a ‘rusty /natural look (costs less than standard price).
  • Some items can be powder coated (in a variety of colours).
Sizes:
If you would like any other size to the one shown on the item page, this isn’t a problem, as we can make the item to your specifications (within practical reasoning).
Other:
If you like a particular item but would prefer to have alternative finials / scrolls added etc, we can do this, just contact us with your ideas.
Your designs:
If you have your own design idea and can draw it, down (you don’t need to be an artist) with all measurements and relevant information we will work with you to produce it.

All of the above - non standard - items will have an additional cost which would be quoted to you before you order.
