Metalier Rust Design is on TV again

We’re taking part in another series of How Did You do that? – This time it’s about a commercial fit-out for Bellbird Productions.   If you missed it on Choice TV you can go to their website and live stream it on your computer.  It features in Episode 3 (“Ep 3” if you’re in the business).  And there is more coming.

Metalier Rust Design is featured with a green wall

Ep 3 shows 3 Metalier rust design panels being erected onto a solid wall along with a green wall.  Plants are planted into green porous containers and slotted into a wall.  Everything is placed on the wall with the aid of a cherry picker.  Rust as an organic process sits well with the organic green of the plants and the planter boxes.

Metalier’s Rust Design range

Metalier produces a range of different rust effects.  Different colours of rust design can be produced using our unique Metalier patinas.  Metalier produces yellow rust, red rust, volcanic rust and brown rust design.  You can also create patterns in rust.  Our pattern which we’ve called transition combines rust in the low points with raw iron in the upper parts.

Metalier Rust Design is real rust

Metalier works with real metal.  Its rust design is created with real iron and real patina.  But it is purely decorative.  It has the same characteristics as destructive rust but does none of the damage.  This is because Metalier iron only rusts the very thing coating of Metalier.  It doesn’t go on to destroy the substrate.  This has a number of advantages.  The substrate is unharmed for one and because the process is stopped it doesn’t leach and dribble.  Much nicer!

At Metalier we have applied our rust design to doors, to panels, to fireplaces – all to great effect.  For a little rust in your life contact us here or complete the form below.

Why you should choose Metalier Liquid Metal

Metalier Liquid Metal – Why it's a great choice

This week an architect challenged me to outline the reasons why you would use Metalier Liquid Metal instead of sheet metal.  On the job being specified flat panels were required.  The benefits of Metalier Liquid Metal being able to go round curves and corners and be flexible were of no advantage in this particular fit out.  And the cost of sheet brass and Metalier Liquid Metal bass panels was about the same.

At Metalier we love a challenge.

Here are our answers:

  1. Weight. 

Metalier coatings are much lighter than brass sheets so there is no need to strengthen walls and bracing.  Because they are lighter, Metalier sheets and panels are more convenient to handle.

  1. Convenience.

Metalier coatings can be made in sheets to the desired size, whether this is large or small.  There is no standard size.

  1. Tooling savings

The tooling required to cut sheets of brass on site tend to heat up the metal to an unacceptable level.  This means that the sheets of brass usually need to be cut off site using a guillotine to give a straight smooth cut.  Metalier panels can be cut on site to any shape using cut off wheel or duel blade saws which are easier to handle.  The coating will also not heat when being cut in this way.

  1. Safety

Safety is less of a concern on site as you are not dealing with a razor sharp sheet of metal.

  1. Patterns and textures

Metalier can be patterned and textured in a way not possible with sheet metal.  Sheet metal would not be a suitable medium for the beautiful flower motif used as our hero shot.

It’s great to be challenged and to have to “go back to basics” of why?  We know why but we need to be able to tell you too.
