The Piquia model is a compact CorTen steel wood stove with an industrial look. This terrace stove has a galvanized steel door handle and stainless steel lock bolts around, both above and below the door. These contrast well with the warm rustic plate material. The legs of the 3-legged version are made of stainless steel. The version with 4 legs has a small ash tray on the back.

  • What does CorTen steel mean?
    COR
    -rosion resistance               : corrosion resistance
    TEN-sile strength                        : tensile strength
    It has been developed by US Steel with the aim of creating weatherproof steel. It is a metal alloy consisting of iron to which copper, silicon, nickel and chromium have been added.

    CorTen steel properties
    Characteristic of CorTenstaal is the brown-orange rust color and the long lifespan.
    Through the addition of the other metals to the iron, CorTen steel develops a solid layer of rust, the oxide skin, which shields the deeper material from oxygen. In contrast to ordinary steel, corrosion is not a wear, but rather a protection of the steel.
    The solid rust layer that has to develop will, depending on the weather, take 2 to 6 months. After this, the CorTen no longer delivers rust (water).

    Faster start-up of the rust process
    Accelerating and allowing to rust more evenly is possible with a salt or acid solution.
    For salt, kitchen salt works fine and for acid can be thought of vinegar. Mix this with water in a plant spray and inject the product.

    Benefits of CorTen steel
    • beautiful appearance and gets a warm rust color
    • very durable (lasts about 10 times longer than ordinary steel)
    • very strong material (similar to stainless steel)
    • does not need to be treated
    • it is 100% recyclable
