Hot Dip Galvanising — Beams & Piles

Perry Metal Protection offer Hot Dip Galvanising of steel UB beams suitable for a variety of applications including as an alternative to wooden piles. Galvanising Steel is widely used in applications where corrosion resistance is needed without the additional cost of on-site painting and expensive touch-ups caused by installation.

Batch hot dip galvanising provides Corrosion protection of steel by providing a thick, metallic envelope which completely covers the steel and seals it from the corrosive action of the environment. Metallic Zinc is strongly resistant to the corrosive action of normal environments and hot dip galvanising therefore provides long term protection for steel.
