Outdoor fireplaces made of corten steel
Many garden fires, patio heaters and outdoor fireplaces are made of corten steel. But fire pits, fire bowls and other objects in the garden are also frequently made from this type of steel.
Corten steel is a type of steel containing copper. Corten steel is also known as weather resistant steel. Corten steel is characterised by its brown-orange rust colour on the one hand and its long lifespan on the other. The lifespan is so long because the first layer of corrosion stops further damage by rust, making painting unnecessary and maintenance very low. The more you use the garden fire, the more beautiful it becomes. An important property of Corten steel is that the garden fire will not rust through and can therefore be left outside in all weathers.
In short, with a corten steel garden fire you do not only get a special object in the garden, you are also sure that it will last for years.
Tip when buying a corten steel patio fire
Attention: It happens that a certain type of outdoor fireplace or garden fire is not directly delivered with a rust look. Often the manufacturer delivers the fireplaces already with a recognizable corrosion layer, but it also happens that it is still plain steel and the first "rust formation" has yet to occur. But don't worry, this goes very quickly. After a few uses or a while standing outside, the garden fireplace will start to rust and you can enjoy a beautiful eye catcher in your garden!
