FINISHES DELIVERY & INSTALLATION At Fine Iron, we specialise in metal finishes of all kinds. Our expertise and experience has resulted in a durable, beautiful and authentic finish to protect your ironwork for years to come. Your ironwork is designed for ease of installation. We supply all fixings and full fitting instructions for installation by yourself or your own local contractors – the vast majority of customers find this is the most cost-effective option. However, for more demanding installations we can supply and install, if required. • All metalwork is now shot-blasted prior to finishing to ensure excellent adhesion. • A three-coat paint system is applied with an electrostatic sprayer using quality paint for a durable, weather-resistant finish. • The standard finish is black – traditional for ironwork. • We can create a finish in any colour to your requirement – just supply us with a RAL colour reference, or we can match to common paint manufacturer colours, such as Farrow&Ball or Dulux. There may be small additional charge depending on the specified colour. • For glazing bar roof frameworks, or for ironwork subjected to corrosive coastal or exposed environments, Zinc Thermal Coating (Metallisation) provides a superior alternative to galvanising. This spray-applied zinc coating eliminates the risk of thermal distortion of hot dip galvanising. Applied as a base coating under a two-pack paint finish, metalisation actually bonds the zinc with the steel to form an extremely durable coating that will usually last far in excess of 20 years*. *Due to the affects and variations of localised conditions, we are unable to provide a guarantee or warranty beyond the statutory 12 months (as with hot-dip galvanising). • Once you have discussed and agreed on your ideal package a Proforma or deposit invoice is raised. • On receipt of payment we produce drawings (generally 5–10 working days) for customer approval prior to manufacture commencing – this enables all dimensions to be checked. • Lead in time is generally 4–8 weeks and manufacture time 4–6 weeks from receipt of signed approved drawings. (Timescales are indicative only and depend on the volume of work in production at time of order, the size and complexity of the order and availability of materials from third party suppliers.) DELIVERY • We will contact you once ready to arrange a convenient delivery date. • All goods are generally palletised, larger verandas are sent by private transportation company. • For specific enquiries regarding installation or delivery, please contact us. 24 | FINE IRON
