Why did we choose hot-dipped galvanised trusses?
At Entegra, we always strive to ensure the highest quality for our customers by sourcing the best materials available. Our standard option has always been the hot-dipped galvanised trusses for all our types of sheds. Considering its high durability and ultimate steel finish that all customers desire for their new sheds, this is why we use hot dip galvanised coating.
What are hot-dipped galvanised trusses?
This is a coating method that prevents steel corrosion by dipping steel in molten zinc bath. As the steel is in contact with zinc, it galvanises with the base metal chosen. The coating method is unique as it creates a metallurgic bond with the surface area of the metal that allows long lasting protection for steel as compared to paint coatings.
Galvanised coating also greatly protects metal from abrasion.
In the case of any damage to the zinc coating, protection is maintained with the cathodic action of the surrounding galvanised coating. Surely, it is a tough coating.
Benefits of hot-dipped galvanised trusses
Galvanisers Association of Australia has set galvanising standard 4680 for Australia and New Zealand which ensures reliability of the galvanised coating’s safety and resilience.
Not only giving the best protection for the trusses, hot dip galvanising also provides the lowest maintenance cost over longer time and ease of inspection as it is assessed readily by eye and by simple, non-destructive thickness testing methods.
Due to its durability, less maintenance work is needed and interestingly the coating is expected to last over 50 years in the most rural environments and 20-25 years + for urban exposure. Another great benefit of this coating is the fast application of the full protective coating as the process can be done despite any weather conditions. Did you know that we had been chosen by the Australian government to build a helicopter hangar at Davis Station in Antarctica? Regardless of the weather, Entegra has made sure that your materials can last through anything the environment throws at it.
