Steel tree installations
Customizable steel-based tree sculptures can conceal or break up unsightly building elements (such as exposed ceilings or structural columns) while providing a distinctive focal point. Trees are the result of a multi-step creation process: After the trunk and limbs are created from steel and encased in steel mesh, they are coated with a fire-retardant composite that is then hand-carved to create a bark texture that contains no VOCs. Realistic details and polyester silk leaves are added as a last step. Trees are dismantled before shipping. When they are delivered, the manufacturer provides a crew to permanently assemble and install them on-site.
