Times Square “The Village”

While Times Square rang in the new year, we restored “The Village” by artist Joe Doucet. These sculptures can see over 10,000 visitors a day. They needed a sturdy and longer-lasting face lift.

Outdoor metal artwork and furniture need to be refinished. Salt in the winter and sun in the summer wear away at finishes. Rust can grow and make them vulnerable.

Pieces in high traffic areas, like Times Square, experience more wear and tear. With this new powder coat finish, they are good to go for several more years.

We sandblasted them clean, removing the previous paint and rust.

Then we treated the bare metal with an iron phosphate anti-corrosion spray.

The size of the cages made for a tight fit. Our oven’s dimensions just managed to fit the cage with a few feet to spare.

Next time you’re in Times Square, stop by and take a selfie with these awesome sculptures!

After the primer coat, we powder coated the cages bright yellow and blue again.

We sprayed them on their side. Then we lifted them on the forklift to get every angle covered.

Custom Bumper

For these custom bumpers we changed a small detail, but the effect was very dramatic. We sandblasted off the factory finish from the bolts and detail parts on the custom bumper. Then we found the perfect glossy red to powder coat the accent parts. Now they really pop and break up the solid black of the bumper.

Refurbish Cast Iron Radiators

Some houses have beautiful old cast iron radiators hidden under years of caked on paint, like these vintage American Radiator Company pieces. This fall we have been refurbishing lots of radiators, as home owners prepare for the colder weather to come.

These came to us so coated with old layers of paint that you couldn’t see the wonderful filigree.

We sandblasted the layers of old paint away to reveal the clean metal underneath. We powder coated them with a simple metallic gray that really emphasizes the design in the metal.

They are now good as new, and ready warm their house for many more years. Make sure to check out our tips for caring and maintaining your powder coating finish.
