All Materials, Conditions, and Architectures
In order to transform your vision into reality, our craftsmen work with an extensive array of materials and finishes. This versatility enables Hammersmith to meet the demands of modern and rustic spaces alike. From urban landscapes to furniture construction, the following list illustrates many of the materials Hammersmith Metal specializes in:
Ferrous and Non-ferrous Metals
Because of its durability and longevity, custom steel fabrication is an ideal choice for metalwork that will be exposed to the elements. Our custom steel fabricators work with contractors and urban landscapers to design strong structures that require little maintenance. A weathered finish will give the shiny metal a more rustic appearance.
Our stainless steel fabricators create structures with a fresh, modern appearance. Unlike steel fabrication, stainless steel fabrication is completely resistant to blemishes, making it highly durable. Because of its long life span, it's ideal for projects with industrial use.
Aluminum fabrication is great for outdoor spaces because it's non-combustible, non-flammable and reflective. Easily fused, this metal also takes on shapes seamlessly. Plus, it's light silver coloring can be altered through the use of finishes.
Durable, ductile and resistant to corrosion, copper fabrication lends itself to urban landscaping and design. With a patina finish, copper can take on colors that range from blackish-brown to green.
Corten fabrication deals with a steel alloy that has a reddish-orange coloring when exposed to the outdoors. Extremely popular today, our corten fabricators use this reactive material to create structures that have a rustic appearance.
With colored, mottled and rock options, zinc fabrication can embody a variety of looks. It's a reactive metal that changes appearance with outdoor exposure. It eventually reaches a worn, mat aesthetic.
A combination of copper and zinc, brass has hints of gold in it. Brass fabrication can create metalwork with a rustic or mottled appearance.
Ipe is a Brazilian Walnut hardwood that is strong and long lasting. Since it is both strong and elegant, it's a great option for complementing urban landscapes and ideal for creating custom, outdoor furniture.
Teak is a hardwood that is resistant to both weather and termites. Its durability makes in the ideal choice of wood for architecture, urban landscaping and outdoor furniture.
Black and White Walnut
Black walnut is a hardwood with a brownish coloring that deepens with age. White walnut is softer, lighter in weight and coloring than black walnut wood. It also takes polish well, and is highly rot resistant. As far as woods go, it is one of the most malleable. It can be bent to accommodate the shape of architecture or furniture.
When choosing a finish for your metalwork, you should consider aesthetics and functionality. Applying a finish can extend your metal's lifespan by forming a protective layer. Colored finishes impact the tone and physical appeal of your metal fabrication. Hammersmith Metal works with a variety of finishes including, but not limited to, polished mirror, satin, powder coat, wet paint, weathered steel and patinas.
