 Construction

CopperCopper is used on our 3D ranges (heads and spacers) offering timeless quality with corrosion-free durability.  This precious metal naturally achieves a verdigris effect over a period of time.  A lacquer spray can be used to prolong the polished effect and delay the development of the natural patina.  The 3D bodies are handcrafted from beaten copper sections and brazed.  The brazing will be visible, but this does not tend to detract from the overall good looks of our copper weathervanes.

Brass ConstructionCast brass fittings are used for the cardinal points (NSEW) on our 3D polished copper weathervanes.


 

Steel ConstructionSteel is used for the rotation rods and standard bracket mount on the 3D weathervanes.  The steel is coated with an exterior quality powder coat paint for extended life.

Black Powder Coat PaintThe weathervane rods and mounts are coated with an exterior quality powder coat paint which protects the steel and offers a durable finish.  You can expect this finish to look good for quite some time!  For extended life, we suggest giving the mount a coat of Hammerite paint.
