A-1 Fence is able to offer a complete package in partnership with experts at hot dip galvanizing. Hot dip galvanizing is perhaps the most important process, which goes a long way in ensuring products lengthy lifetime.
It is important for the end user to differentiate between hot dip galvanizing and electroplating. Hot dip results in a protective metallurgically bonded alloy coating that protects the steel from corrosion, which is not the case with Electroplating. Simply put, Hot dip is a way superior process of galvanizing as far as protection from corrosion is concerned.
At A-1 Fence, any project that involves hot dip galvanizing after fabrication, several design decisions are made to ensure top quality galvanizing. Some of the more important issues considered are - Bend diameters, Cold worked steel processes (like bending, drilling, punching, shearing), Overlapping surfaces, Venting and draining, Moving parts, etc.
