Galvanizing

We galvanize all our gates to ensure longevity and durability. Galvanizing is the process of coating iron and steel with a thin layer of zinc and passing it through a molten bath at a temperature of 460°C.

When exposed to this atmosphere, the zinc reacts with oxygen to form zinc oxide, which then reacts further with carbon dioxide to form zinc carbonate. This creates a strong material that stops corrosion by protecting the steel below from the elements which can cause rusting.
