We are proud to showcase the work of many talented landscape architects, skilled contractors and savvy homeowners who have incorporated Iron Age decorative castings into their hardscape designs. Get inspired, then contact us about your next project.

We generally recommend letting our grates age naturally, but we can deliver #InstantGratification too! If bypassing the temporary orange oxidation (a.k.a. #rusty) phase of raw cast iron is preferred for project aesthetics, we offer an eco-friendly solution called #BakedOnOilFinish. We start out with a raw #castiron grate, get it good and rusty, then dip it in #recycled vegetable oil and bake it. The natural oxidation process is still occurring under the surface, but this finish allows for a more smooth, graceful transition to final #patina.

#RustIsBeautiful 🧡🧡🧡🧡
Raw #castiron starts out grey in color, but upon contact with water, a bright orange oxide develops. This loosely adhering layer (a.k.a. #rust) easily washes or wears away, leaving behind a more tightly adhering oxide coating that actually protects the grate from further corrosion. What you end up with is a warm, reddish-brown #patina, similar to any manhole cover in the street.
