Impress your neighbours by revitalizing your gate

Looking to make sure you give a good first impression for your home or business? Transform your old and dirty railings with an easy solution by using Hammerite, a long-lasting product that will keep your railing looking good for years to come.

  1. Use a wire brush or sandpaper to remove all loose rust and flaking paint from the gate.

  2. Wash the gate down thoroughly with diluted detergent, rinse with clean water and allow to dry. This ensures any grease or dirt which could prevent the paint from adhering to the gate is removed.

  3. If the gate is made from bare zinc, aluminium or galvanised metal, use Hammerite Direct to Galvanised Metal Paint, otherwise we used Hammerite Direct to Rust Metal Paint in Smooth finish.

  4. A good quality, narrow headed brush is best for this task, so you can reach the ornate parts of the gate structure more easily.

  5. Apply a thin coat before leaving to dry for 4 hours, then apply a second coat for best results.
