Powder coated steel planters
Bespoke powder coated steel planters were commissioned as part of the refurbishment of a four-storey townhouse in prestigious Hans Place, Knightsbrige, London SW1.
A total of 10 large planters were commissioned, in sizes up to L 2600mm. 8 of the planters are interconnected to create a total of 15m of continuous beds, of varying configuration; and the planters are bolted together under the soil level so that the surface planting appears continuous.
IOTA’s Radial planters were also used on the Garden Terrace on the 2nd floor, and IOTA also supplied all planting materials for the project.
The planters serve to screen and green the three terraces of the residence, and to convert each into intimate and private outdoor spaces. The colour selected was RAL 7048 [Pearl mouse grey], a soft colour which adds to the sense of tranquility, and which also tones well with the limestone flooring used for the 4th floor Master Bedroom terrace.
Steel is an ideal planter material for terraces and balconies, combining a clean, modern aesthetic with light weight and an enduring toughness and durability.
IOTA steel planters can be customised with minimal additional cost, and options include:
• height-adjustable feet and recessed wheels
• internal water reservoirs
• galvanised liners with lift-out handles for rapid plant changeover
• thermal insulation
• internal attachment points for root ball anchoring systems
In addition to standard RAL colours, a wide range of specialist powder coat colours and finishes are also available.
