installation and care


Mild Steel left untreated will continue to rust. Once works have reached the desired level of rust we advise all works located outside be coated with a product called Penetrol (clear) every 2 years. It is a product easily found at most hardware stores that helps prevent further corrosion.

Cylinders

Installation
Cylinders can be installed indoors or outdoors. On purchase these works will need one coat of Penetrol inside and out. We recommend that the cylinders be placed on pavers rather than bare earth. Cylinders outside will need to be secured. Hammer a 1.5m stake 300mm into the ground. Place the cylinder over the top with the stake against the back seam of the cylinder, allowing room in the middle for the light. Safe installation of the work is the responsibility of the purchaser.

Lighting
There is a space at the back for the light cord to fit through. The light that reaches the top of the cylinder best is a 150W garden floodlight with stand.

Lollipops

Installation
We advise coating the Lollipops all over with Penetrol (clear) once they have reached the desired amount of rust. Especially the tips entering the ground. Initially you will need to do three coats and then a single coat every 2 years. Safe installation of the work is the responsibility of the purchaser.

Lighting
Standard 12V garden lights will highlight the Lollipops very effectively.
