The Colour of Antique Copper



Over a period of many years copper will oxidise, the predominant colour is green.

Depending on the location and direction that the item is facing will alter the colour that the item will eventually take.

Many roof top ventilators, one is shown below will go a lovely all over green colour, these would of been fitted to the top of old Victorian buildings and open to the elements


                                                                    4ft tall roof top ventilator



Copper boilers that have been indoors will go a dark copper colour, but once they are put outside and used as garden planters they too take on varying degrees of 'greenness' depending on their position and time of exposure to the elements


Shown below is the ventilator alongside a few of our garden planters

How do we do it !! - Building Cast Iron Radiators

If you want to paint or spray your own radiators then you need to buy paint that is suitable for metal. It does not need to be a special radiator paint or a heat proof paint.

You will find suitable paint at your local hardware store or the larger outlets like B&Q
Farrow and ball do an eggshell finish paint

If you choose to have your radiator painted by us then this is the basic process that our cast iron radiators go through.

Once your order is picked from the warehouse the sections are sprayed in your choice of colour




The individual sections are then assembled





The radiators are pressure tested to 8bar




Once the radiator has passed it's test then it can be oversprayed
The finished radiator then goes through Quality Control and then on to dispatch where it is carefully wrapped.
