Used in both new and retrofit applications, foundation plates improve an areaway’s appearance, cover rough masonry, reduce the inside areaway width, or provide side support in corner installations. Formed plates are constructed of prime-painted steel and are available with an optional powder-coat paint finish. Foundation plates are 72” in length and are available in 5”, 8”, 11” and 14” widths.
Finish & Optional Powder-Coating
The standard primer coated foundation plates in all sizes has baked-on Shermin Williams primer providing a durable base for painting. If you’re looking to get your foundation plate powder-coated, you can add on an optional polyester powder-coat in 1 of 4 colors: White, Light Gray, Sandstone and Brick. Powder-coating offers a superior finish than conventional paint and the polyester resin provides a durable, weather-resistant coating. Cured at high temperatures than most wet coatings, the result is a tougher and chip-resistant coating, providing both a decorative and protective finish.
