High precision laser cut design from 2mm steel directly mounted onto a strong steel mast for a clean and seamless look.
The chosen design comes complete with the mounting bracket of choice, steel mast, North/ South and East/ West cardinal points, steel bearing, copper grease sachet and fitting instructions.
All of our products are made to order. After lasing cutting is complete, it is then welded by hand at our workshop in Essex. Then it is balanced and mounted using a bearing for continued reliable movement. All of our metal work is zinc electric plated with an added passivate process prior to powder coating to ensure longevity. This is important to ensure it withstands our British weather and stays looking great for up to 30 years.
