All our CorTen steel sheets are initially supplied unweathered, mirroring the appearance shown in the product images. As the CorTen steel plate undergoes the natural weathering process, the rust layer will gradually transform into a dark brown or rustic orange tone, characteristic of CorTen metal. The pace of this process depends on environmental conditions, whether wet or dry.

To facilitate easy installation, our CorTen steel sheets can be directly fixed to a flat surface using screws. If fixing holes are required (4 holes, 1 in each corner), customers can specify this by noting ‘fixing holes’ in the shopping cart’s note section, and we will provide this service accordingly. At The Metal Store, we prioritize customization, ensuring that our customers receive CorTen steel sheets that meet their specific needs and preferences.
