We make our planters out of a variety different sheet metals, but typically we are using thick gauge, marine grade aluminum. Our go-to is usually 1/8” thick 5052 aluminum alloy. This is what all of our Stock planters are made out of. We fabricate using this thickness and employ fabrication techniques to make our planters incredibly strong, so they will not bow out or deflect. This enables us to keep prices down while producing a premium and robust product.
When needed, we fabricate out of thicker gauges of 5000 and 6000 series aluminum and also fabricate using stainless, corten and galvanized steels of various thicknesses.
