sprayed metal coatings - the possibilities are endless
Specialist metal fabricators, polishers and surface finishers.
Having over 25 years experience in all aspects of metalwork Southern Metal Developments specializes in the restoration and reproduction of all things metal. And with the introduction of sprayed metal coatings, also most things that aren't metal aswell.
Over the last 10 years we have developed different methods and techniques that enable us to produce everything from the most unusual to the seemingly impossible. We use every possible means at our disposal, from the latest CNC machinery to the tried and tested (sometimes forgotten) old school methods and because our work
is produced in house, changes can be made during production and projects can evolve and grow.
In addition to fabrication we offer all types of finishing to see projects through to completion, including, polishing, plating, patination and spraying.
The latest addition to our works is metal sprayed coatings. Not to be confused with a painted finish the final coating is over 90% metal and can be treated as such. All metal coatings can be sanded, polished, blasted and patinated, in fact any finish that can be applied to solid metal can also be applied to the coating. Copper, brass and bronze can be left to tarnish, iron can be left to rust or patinas can applied followed by a lacquer to hold the finish suspended in time.
