CARE & MAINTENANCE
Like Superman’s suit, hot-dip galvanising a mild (mannered) steel frame not only looks the business, it provides an extra layer of protection from corrosion. We offer a galvanised finish on some of our steel products specified for use in extreme environmental conditions, or for those seeking an industrial vibe.
For the technically inclined and detail-oriented, here are some fun facts about a galvanised steel finish:
-It has a protective zinc coating which gives a sacrificial layer that inhibits corrosion of the base metal
-Tait uses the hot-dip galvanizing method whereby each piece is submerged in a bath of molten hot zinc
-It is very low-maintenance
-It’s the Real McCoy of industrial finishes and so surface irregularities, such as small bumps and surface coarseness will be apparent but is all part of the appeal
-It is bright silver when new and will gently dull over time. But don’t we all…
We offer a hot-dip galvanised finish on the following collections:
-Jak & Jil, Flint Collection , Kink Collection, Stripe Stool
No specific maintenance is required; however, we recommend washing your galvanised products with water and a soft brush every six months to remove dirt and debris build-up.
Careless handling, treatment or misuse of our products can result in damage and is not covered under our manufacturer’s warranty.
Galvanised steel is an industrial finish which offers superior corrosion protection. Surface irregularities, such as small bumps and surface coarseness may be apparent and are characteristic of the finish. Whilst care is taken to remove these irregularities where possible, they are a result of the galvanising process and are not covered under warranty.
Please note: Tait cannot provide product refurbishment requests or non-urgent warranties during the period of October 1st – January 30th.
