Corten Steel Signage – Hubbox

About This Project



Plymouth-based burger chain Hub Box needed signage for their latest restaurant and approached us to create a bespoke Corten steel sign. Working in collaboration with architect John Macaulay from Macaulay Sinclair, the brief was to ensure all signage was uniform and sensitive to the look and feel of the whole street. We created two industrial-looking signs, one of them was slightly larger and would fit across the threshold while being backlit. The second was to act as a signpost from the side of the wall.


Bespoke Corten steel signage


Based on your brief we can create bespoke stylish Corten steel signage to suit your business brand.


Our in-house designers will conceptualise your custom signage project and share it with you in detailed CAD drawings before we start. Our experienced craftsmen will then create and finish the project in our rural workshops.


All our pieces are crafted to a high specification using a variety of techniques – both traditional and modern – as well as the latest plasma-cutting technologies.

Why Corten steel?


Corten steel signs offer an industrial, rustic-style effect and pop against any backdrop.


Cor-Ten is a brand name for steel alloys which were developed to be weather-proof, even without paint. You may have also heard it be referred to as ‘weathering steel’, ‘rusty steel’ and ‘Corten’.


The material organically adapts to its environment, producing a vibrant orange patina. This not only protects the steel but creates a stunning finish.


Weathered steel is suitably stable. Rather than rusting entirely, the surface transforms over time in a consistent way that prevents further corrosion. The way it weathers will be as unique and attractive as your design.
