General Product Specification

 

  • Our planters are manufactured from nominal 0.8mm (+/- 0.1mm) thick steel unless otherwise requested.

  • All planters are fabricated by way of a locking seam arrangement and all top corners are fixed with a single rivet. This method is not entirely water tight and if customers require a water tight planter it must be made clear prior to order. Options are available for producing a water tight planter.

  • As standard the interned top lip is 25mm and is fabricated to include a 15mm safe edge.

  • Generally, bases are internally raised by 15mm and include drainage holes. Larger planters do not have raised bases and should be installed on raised blocks or slabs.

  • We generally work to a tolerance +/- 5mm.

  • Where a Galvanised finish is chosen, customers should be aware that light scratching to the surface can often be seen. This is a result of the manufacturing process and unavoidable. In most circumstances this adds to the planters industrial appeal, although some customers may not feel this suits their aesthetic plans.

  • WE RECOMMEND LINING ALL PLANTERS WITH A PLASTIC MEMBRANE TO AVOID CORROSION FROM AGGRESSIVE CHEMICALS FOUND IN SOME COMPOSTS AND/OR PLANT FEED.

  • ANY SINGLE PLANTER FACE IN EXCESS OF 700mm x 700mm SHOULD BE LINED WITH 12mm PLY WOOD. PRICES AVAILABLE ON REQUEST.

  • ANY SINGLE PLANTER FACE IN EXCESS OF 950mm OR WEIGHS MORE THAN 25kg WILL BE SUBJECT TO EXTRA DELIVERY CHARGES. PRICES AVAILABLE ON REQUEST.
