The Portofino Garden Arch with its Roman styling offers simple features creating an elegant yet discreet entrance.
The free-standing model "Portofino" is a lovely enticement to a private terrace or a fine restaurant. A memory of those sunny days in Italy, steep cliffs, deep blue water and white yachts.
Structure is made of 4 cm (1.58") steel tubing and 2 cm (0.79") steel bands. The hot-dip galvanization will extend the life of your arch. The powder coating is a top-quality coating that will last for many, many years. The pinecone finials are cast aluminum and powder coated to match the arch.
This garden arch may be purchased with or without the Versailles planters added to each side. When shipped with planters, ground fixing is not required. Planters measure 17.3" x 20.5" x 20". Both planters supplied with plastic drop-in/take-out liner. If shipped without planters, staking provided.
Heavy steel bands and steel tubing are welded together and subsequently galvanized by hot-dip at 860 degrees Fahrenheit. Such galvanization is also effect in the rust-prone welded areas and inside the tubing.
The structures are powder coated at 392 degrees Fahrenheit. At this temperature the color and the sand-brushed galvanized surface fuse to create an extremely weather resistant surface.
Manufactured so that very little assembly is required.
Three standard sizes are available with or without Versailles planters.
All Portofino arches are a special order and require 8 to 10 weeks for delivery.
