Important work steps,

until your Gartenmetall® product is with you:

As a rule, far more work steps are required than you might think before we can hand over your finished favorite piece of metal. In the following overview you will learn which steps our metal garden objects and street furniture go through until they are ready for delivery.

1. Construction and work preparation

We design all our metal garden objects and street furniture ourselves in modern 3D CAD systems. Therefore, we can react quickly and flexibly to your suggestions and also implement special requests without any problems. Subsequently, your metal objects are scheduled in the work preparation department and manufactured step by step in our production.

2. Raw material from stock

Not all sheet metal is the same. When purchasing, we pay attention to high-quality basic material, so that we can provide you with high-quality and durable garden objects and street furniture. For corten steel, for example, we use only metal without rolled skin. This is more expensive, but can be processed much more precisely and no rolling skin flakes off after bursting. Due to our well thought-out stock-keeping, we always remain able to deliver, even in difficult times.

3. Laser cutting

Our metal parts are manufactured on state-of-the-art CNC laser cutting machines from the market leader TRUMPF. Even the most filigree motifs can be cut from the raw panels, for example for our VISTA motif walls.

4. Folding

Our industrially programmed bending machines ensure that all corners and edges of the garden objects are precisely on angle. The interaction of raw material, bending tool and modern and well-maintained press brake is the guarantee for success.

5. Welding

Almost each of our garden objects consists of numerous individual parts that need to be connected together. To weld plant troughs, water basins and other metal objects straight and with low distortion, a lot of experience and a lot of skill is needed. Our welders have both. You can see this in our end products: clean edges, barely visible weld seams. This high quality distinguishes us from other manufacturers.

6. Grinding

Fine grinding for a perfect surface: the garden objects are ground at the welds in such a way that practically no seam is seen later, regardless of the type of metal from which the elements were made.
On objects made of stainless steel, fingerprints and small scratches are quickly visible. Therefore, we grind all our stainless steel objects with a non-directional Rotex grind. This ensures that sunlight is evenly refracted and fingerprints are hardly noticeable. However, the most important advantage is: scratches that occur during use or assembly can be easily removed on site without any loss of quality.

7. Rusting

Corten steel in the raw state has a bright surface. To ensure that your garden objects still reach you in the desired appearance, we rust the visible sides of all metal objects with our SUPER-ROST-Pad. This results in the desired surface within 24 hours. You can learn more about this step here: >>> OBSESS

However, it takes a while for the natural rust surface to form. You will find everything you need to know about corten steel and its special surface on our material page: >> > CORTENSTAHL

8. Shoot threaded bolt

Before the final assembly, there are still many small things to complete: Cut threads, make countersinks or – as in the photo – shoot threaded bolts on one side. The advantage of this particular method is that no screw connection is visible on either side.

9. Assembly and testing

After the metal objects are manufactured, our employees assemble the individual parts and insert the accessories. For water objects, for example, the connections and the pump are installed ready, and in the garden kitchens are added doors, drawers and countertop. In doing so, we assemble as much as possible, but make sure that the goods can still be packed for transport.
Last but not least, we check the products: In the case of the AQUA LINEA water basins, for example, the black plastic coating is checked for leaks, and the water curtain AQUA RAIN is still to be checked for water outlet nozzles. Many small steps, therefore, so that after you get a flawless garden object, which you will enjoy for a long time.

10. Packing and delivery

Finally made it! Your garden object has gone through all the necessary production steps and is carefully packed and sent on its way to you. When you receive the goods, make sure that the packaging is not damaged and that the goods arrive to you as perfect as they left our house.
