One of the newest products to be added to our range and EXCLUSIVE to MLS, the Phoenix Rain Shelter can be produced totally in Cor-Ten steel or with clear polycarbonate glazing. Seating between 8 and 11 comfortably, the side panels can be decorated to your specification using the latest laser cutting technology. This piece was the first project at MLS to use Cor-Ten steel.
Cor-Ten, famous for its use on the Angel of the North, Newcastle and the BBC broadcasting Tower building in Leeds, really is an innovative material and just beautiful to look at. The corrosion retarding effect of the protective layer is produced by the nature of its structure components and the particular distribution and concentration of alloying elements in it. The layer protecting the surface develops and regenerates continuously when subjected to the influence of the weather. This gives the metal a wonderful deep orange colour, without compromising on durability or strength.
We are market leaders in our field and continuously strive to better and modernise our techniques and the materials we use. This rain shelter is a key example of this. If you have a bespoke project that you would like to talk to us about, please do not hesitate to call Ian or David.
