Galvanised and Powder Coated | This is expensive but ultimately one of the best finishes available for architectural metalwork.
It combines the benefit of galvanising with a powder coated finish, whereby the powdered paint is cured within a heated oven.
Small vent holes will be visible on hollow section steel.
Red Oxide Primer and Painted Black | Here we apply a single coat of red oxide primer, allowing it to dry and then applying a single coat of satin matt black paint. The paint is sprayed on to the metalwork in our factory. We recommend that you apply at least one more coat of black paint subsequent to delivery or installation. We cannot state how long this will protect the metalwork from rusting, but it is advisable to touch up at least once a year or sooner. On going maintenance will be required. We can quote for 2 coats of black paint if required, please ask us for a price.
Red Oxide Primer | This is a ‘no frills’ finish and the cheapest available option. We apply a single coat of red oxide primer (i.e an undercoat to the metalwork), ready for on site painting by others in whatever colour you like! On going maintenance will be required.
Galvanised Only | We are able to hot dip galvanise the majortiy of our products. Galvanising will generally stop the metalwork from rusting, unless the galvanising has chipped to expose the metalwork underneath. Site alterations can be made good by cold galvanising spray. Galvanising is considered to be an industrial finish and does not always produce a smooth surface due to the hot dip galvanising process. Fettling is not included. Small vent holes will be visible on hollow section steel. It is silver/grey in colour and is likely to become darker over time as it weathers.
The metalwork can be left in a galvanised only state or it can be painted on top by first applying a mordant T-wash solution which acts as an undercoat to the paint. It can also be powder coated prior to delivery or installation. See Galvanised and Painted Black or Galvanised and Powder Coated finish.
Powder Coated Only | Metalwork can be finished as powder coated only. Although powder coating generally provides a lovely smooth finish, we discourage a powder coated only finish to externally exposed products as the metalwork beneath the powder coating can rust. In addition, powder coating can chip during installation or transport, resulting in exposed metalwork. Once the metalwork rusts or the powder coating chips, it is difficult to re-store as you cannot hand paint over a powder coated finish using traditional paint brush methods – it just won’t match or look right. Only spray touch up is possible. We are unable to re-powder coat any items which have chips or scratches. Powder coated only is recommended for internal metalwork, but not to externally exposed items.

I was completely satisfied with my dealings with KP Engineering. I found Ketan very informative and professional to deal with.The inspection and survey was carried out promptly. I was given a clear estimate of timing and cost, both of which were adhered to. The installation looks excellent and I am very pleased. I would recommend this company.

Delighted with the product and service. Despite the COVID situation I found this small business to be incredibly fast to respond to enquiries and once restrictions were eased they were able to measure and complete the drawings. Final product was fitted yesterday and installation was a breeze. Top quality, bespoke design and super service.

I wanted beautiful intricate Victorian railings for the balcony of my London flat .
I could not find exactly what I required on the website so Ketan asked me to send pictures of what I needed. I received a bespoke service as the designer was able to look at my pictures and send me suggestions.
I am very happy with the result and the excellent service from Ketan and the team.
Would highly recommend.

A great company who designed and fitted railing to my roof terrace. It's important when you part with money to get a professional service and
KP Engineering did just that. They had so much patience throughout the process and clarity in answering all my questions, a design team who efficiently changed spec as I requested and without fuss. The fitting team were polite, and did such a neat and thorough job. Really pleased.
Thanks so much to all. Great job.
