Street furniture plays a fundamental role, which is taking care of us so that we can enjoy the collective spaces, both indoor and outdoor. That is why we believe that each product deserves much attention. Our long experience has enabled us to hone the techniques and strategies required to produce all types of product: to find out more, we invite you to follow us on our website and to discover the great dedication to details that goes into all our street furniture. From periodic checks, to correct cleaning operations, right through to maintenance, we share our know-how with you, because every object of street furniture has a value that must be protected and respected.

back to list of materials

Behind every piece of street furniture there is the story of the materials composing it: the care with which we select them, and the techniques used to transform them. We love steel: we understand it intimately, and craft it with great care and passion. Right from the start, we have always believed in the power of colour. We have been the first to understand the potential of using Corten in street furniture and we have developed our own maturation process exploiting atmospheric agents by limiting the use of water, ensuring every single product unique and a one-off.

We choose wood from responsibly managed forests and treat it with the care that a living material deserves. Every day, we ask ourselves what solutions will be required in the future: we have enthusiastically embraced issues concerning sustainability, the incredible flexibility of WPC, and the elegant practicality of HPL. We have let ourselves be inspired by concrete, its expressive power and material nature. We get never tired of studying it, developing it, and making it perform better and in a more sustainable way.

The “air bubbles” of concrete
We want to share with you a video that explains the process of formation of the so-called “air bubbles” present in our concrete products.
Metalco customers are accustomed to high quality standards, which is why air bubbles are sometimes mistakenly considered as defects. In fact, they are the natural result of a production process that respects the times of the raw material and allows cement to “breathe”, as we show in this video.
