Street and Outdoor Furniture

Protection against corrosion

Street and outdoor furniture such as street lighting; signs and railing etc are subjected to pollution and heavy weather and should be protected against corrosion.

Prolong a product’s lifetime

Galvanizing creates an easy-to-clean surface which can give a maintenance-free life of more than 70 years.

Galvanizing’s ability to prolong a product’s lifetime make it highly cost-effective, since little or no maintenance is required – giving hot dip galvanizing the lowest overall cost compared to other protective steel coatings.

Hot dip galvanized steel will last very well in most environments. It is not uncommon for galvanized steel to last more than 70 years under certain conditions. Latest corrosion rates can be found at the Galvanizers Association

The three intermetallic layers that form during the galvanizing process are all harder than the substrate steel and have excellent abrasion resistance.

“White Rust”, or wet storage stain, is formed because zinc on newly-galvanized steel is very reactive and quickly forms zinc oxide and zinc hydroxide corrosion products that go on to become the stable zinc carbonate.
When galvanized steel is stacked damp, stored in wet boxes or shrink wrapped with no free-flowing air, the zinc forms excessive layers of zinc hydroxide, otherwise known as wet storage stain.
Most wet storage stain can be easily removed with a nylon brush. To prevent wet storage stain, store galvanized steel indoors and in such a way to allow free-flowing air between each galvanized item.
