Corten ring

A garden archway with a difference, skilfully fabricated in seamlessly welded corten to create a sense of mass and scale while remaining affordable.

About the project

We were commissioned by a garden designer to create a completely circular archway for a private garden. 

Fabricated in corten, the ring measured 1.8 metres in diameter. To keep both the cost and weight within realistic limits, we used steel just 2mm thick, although the finish and 150mm x 150mm profile made it look much more massive and substantial. The finished ring was mounted on a 12mm mild steel plate, which was then bolted to a concrete pad on site. 

The ring was made up of four separate main components – front and back circles, inner and outer rings – all welded together and supported by an internal framework. In terms of design and fabrication, this was not particularly complicated. The real enemy in any welding project, however, is distortion caused by heat. We don’t believe any other company could weld and polish 30 metres of steel to the same standards as our craftsmen, and produce such a seamless, blemish-free finish on such a large scale.
