Powder-coated steel planters offer great scope for colour customisation, combined with a durable, hard-wearing and flawless surface finish. They are made from galvanised, high-grade 1.5mm-thick steel to guarantee a sturdy ‘no flex’ planter with a long life span.

IOTA custom-manufactures powder-coated steel planters in any shape or size, from simple geometric shapes to complex architectural designs. CAD models can also be generated for approval against a design brief.

The planters are fabricated, then faired down to produce smooth corners and edges before being sprayed with a fine powder containing pigment, hardeners and bonding agents. They are then oven baked to 200°C to cure the paint finish. Colours can be selected from the RAL Classic series (over 200 shades), and finishes are available in a matte, satin or glossy finish, and in a range of metallic finishes.

Design options

  • Height-adjustable feet and recessed wheels
  • Internal water reservoir for interior landscaping
  • Galvanised liner with lift-out handles for rapid plant changeover
  • Lifting brackets or raised base for forklift
  • Internal root ball anchors

A quotation can normally be generated within 2-3 days, and production leadtime is typically 4-6 weeks. Custom-designed powder-coated steel planters are guaranteed for 5 years against manufacturing defect.
