- 14ga Thick Hot Rolled Steel

- Raw Steel - If this is selected, the artwork will be shipped without any coating. It is a durable mill scale finish, that is a gunmetal color, but can be shiny in bright light. It can rust, if left outside, but likely will not rust inside, in a low humidity environment. The steel mill scale finish often contains a grain or swirl-like pattern to it, which is a natural occurrence as a result from manufacturing of the steel sheets.
- Black Jack Powder Coating - This flat black finish is highly durable, and can withstand outdoor weather, and will not rust. It will retain it's finish very well, for a long time, no matter the weather conditions. We use high quality Prismatic Powder brand powders.
- Rusty Sandpaper Powder Coating - This unique rust-finished powder coat gives your piece a rusty appearance that will not change or actually rust. It looks great, and holds up in any element. This is perfect for a patina look, without actual patina.
- Black Frost - This coating has a unique "hammered" finish that gives off a silvery black color. It looks great, and holds up very well. It's neutral color goes with just about anything, too.
- This may be finished with a paint that is compatible with metal, proper preparation is recommended. Please see the paint manufacturer's recommendations for preparation.
