At Classic Garden Elements, we have our own forge where all of our garden structures are crafted to the highest standard. Each structure is made using heavy steel bands and steel tubing, which are welded together before being galvanized by hot dip at 460°C (860°F). This hot dip process provides special protection to the rust-prone weld joints and tube interior surface.
In a second step, a powder coating is applied to the weld joints and galvanized parts, and is heat cured at a temperature of 200°C (392°F). This helps to safeguard the high-quality weather resistant surface which is a hallmark of all of our products.
Our pinecone finial is cast in aluminium. Weighing almost 2 kg (4.4 lbs.), it is powder coated at the same high temperature as our galvanized parts. All the nuts and bolts used are made of stainless steel.
All of our garden structures come with a ten-year guarantee against weather-related rust. In the event of such rust occurring, any faulty item may be returned to Classic Garden Elements. We will then either exchange it or provide a refund of the purchase price stated in the invoice. This guarantee applies solely to weather-related rust.
