Advantages of Galvanised Steel

Our products at The Temporary Fencing Shop are manufactured to the highest quality and standard, they are designed for regular use and a lasting life against the harsh Australian climates. Our fencing products undergo a rigorous testing and quality control process to withstand the test of time.

Our secret? We only use hot dipped galvanised steel and that coating is zinc which prevents negative effects of corrosion and rust occurring on your fencing. But that’s only the beginning, we have listed our top 8 advantages of galvanised steel:

1. Upfront Cost

Steel is an inexpensive material and hot dipped galvanisation has become a cheaper option available in the market. The application cost for other protective coatings such as paint has risen far higher than the cost of factory operations such as galvanising.

2. Maintenance Cost

A quality galvanised steel temporary fencing panel will not require much maintenance or repairs. The galvanised coating provides a protective barrier against rust so no on-going maintenance costs such as treatments or extra coats of paint will ever be required.

3. Increased Life Span

Rust and corrosion can break down a material, giving you a frail and easily broken fencing product. Our products are hot-dipped galvanised, which means that your end product will remain a strong barrier for years to come. Our products are also tested and comply with the Australian Standard A.S 4678.

4. Reliability

Galvanizing is carried out to Australian Standard A.S 4678 and standard, the minimum coating thickness is applied. Coating life and performance are reliable and predictable.

5. Strongest Coating

A galvanised coating has a unique metallurgical structure that gives outstanding resistance to damages either on-site or during transportation between sites and even during the storage stage.

6. Protection for Damaged Areas

Every part of a galvanized product is protected, even recesses, sharp corners and inaccessible areas. No coating applied to a steel product after completion can provide the same protection.

7. Faster Erection Time

Our galvanized steel products are delivered ready for use. No time is lost on-site completing surface preparation, painting and inspection. Our fencing is designed for fast installation once on site, and all you need is basic hand tools. For example, you can easily install 200 meters of panels in less than 2 hours!

8. Ease of Application

The galvanizing process is not dependent on weather conditions and galvanisation if needed can be applied inexpensively and very quickly.
