Flaxton Iron design and manufacture street furniture. Steel planter boxes are an increasingly common feature of restaurants and cafes, creating a living barrier between outdoor seating areas and pedestrian zones. You will see many of Flaxton Iron's steel planter boxes and street furniture in the Christchurch CBD.
At Mumbaiwala, the Christchurch restaurant’s upscale Indian street food is matched by rusted, industrial-style ironwork, while nearby at Joe’s Garage in the new Hoyts complex, metal sculptures hang prominently from the ceiling.
Over at the Christchurch Arts Centre Cafe Bunsen, Glen and the team transformed the steel table tops with an acid wash to create the look of polished concrete. And their influence is evident throughout Tony Astle’s new bar Chiwahwah, from the rustic steel planter boxes to the skull beer tower to the small metal hands holding lights.
Flaxton Iron has fitted over 250 commercial premises including restaurants, cafes, bars and shops, supplying them with a huge range of customised steel products and services from bespoke steel street furniture to complete interior design, fabrication and installation of steel fittings.
In Christchurch, Flaxton Iron’s decorative touches are an increasingly familiar sight. Often used in hospitality hotspots, they provide a gritty point of difference for businesses who want to create a unique environment for their customers.
Flaxton Iron specialise in the design and manufacture of commercial BBQ grills, commercial wood fired barbeques, commercial cookers and smokers. Flaxton Iron’s work is romantic and enduring – steel, copper and iron combined in a steampunk fashion that is more on-trend than Glen could have imagined when he first picked up a welder many years ago.
Flaxton Iron design and manufacture mobile food stations and they have built a reputation as Canterbury's leading food truck fabricator. A refitted 1973 Bedford truck for Base Woodfired Pizza is kitted out with an Argentinian barbecue, chillers, hot and cold water system, fold-out bar stools and a full service counter.
"I love working with fire and anything that cooks a good steak is always great, so these mobile units are my sideline passion. Chefs like them too because cooking is going back to basics and these put on a real show."
As with everything made by Flaxton Iron, the cookers are heavy, high-grade, impressive to see and supremely functional.
