For our fire baskets, we want a weathered and rusty look. To achieve this, and at the same time live up to our high level of quality and aesthetics, we have chosen carbon steel. This is a commonly used material in steel products where strength and durability needs to be ensured. To ensure a long-lasting product, the thickness of the metal sheets used is well proportioned.
Soon after you have started to use your product, the surface will get a beautiful, rusty coating. This process will give your product its own, unique look and characteristics.
Carbon steel needs very little maintenance. However, it requires some maintenance to preserve its finish and aesthetics. Corrosion will start as soon as the product is taken into use outdoors, if not yet started when you receive the product.
To get the beautiful corrosion process to start wipe with a damp cloth. Repeat the process if needed.
- Clean your product by dusting it off.
- To avoid unnecessary rusting, do not let water or other liquids dry on the surface of the carbon steel.
The only cleaning needed is to dust, empty ashes and remove other dirt particles.
Empty ashes for fire basket:
Wait until the product is cold. Make sure there is no smolder left. Use an appropriate metal container made for the purpose to empty the ashes into. Dispose of the ashes according to your local regulation.
Clean with dish soap and lukewarm water. Wipe dry with a soft cloth afterwards. Never leave puddles of water or other fluids on the surface.
Staining and rust will occur over time. How fast the process goes depends on several factors, were contact with water or humidity is a main factor.
To protect the outdoor product and make it last longer store in a dry place when not in use.
Staining/discoloring will occur when steel is heated above 200C°. Only the surface is affected and the properties of steel is not compromises. This staining/discoloring can be removed but is not recommended. It is an oxidation layer that helps protect the steel from further corrosion.
