Non-Galvanized vs Galvanized

Why Galvanize?

  • Coating Life - Even in some of the harshest enviornments, hot-dip galvanizing provides a corrosion protection system that will last 50 to 60 years.
  • Cost - The cost of galvanizing can be 1/3 that of painting when maintenance is factored into the entire life cycle.
  • Environmental - The galvanized product is 100% recyclable.
  • Durability - Galvanized products are abrasion resistant and can be errected with minimal to no field repair.
  • Complete Uniform Coverage - Galvanizing a hollow structure coats the interior as well as the exterior of the product.
  • Maintenance - Galvanized products require minimal to no touch-up.
  • Specifications - Galvanizing adheres to strict ASTM standards.
  • Availability - 24/7 365, weather conditions have no impact on the galvanizing process.
