finish galvanised metal components are hot dip galvanised, but unpainted. they are bright and silver when new, but soon assume a soft lead grey colour as they age. they will show traces of white rust as the zinc oxidises. this finish is recommended for furniture in close proximity to the sea.
rust metal components are acid-dipped and left to oxidise (rust). they are brushed down and coated with a wax sealer to prevent brush off marks. this finish will leave rust marks on paving and is not recommended for coastal situations.
