Security fencing plays a crucial role in protecting your company or property, so compromising on its quality is not an option. Enhancing the durability and strength of your metal fences through hot dip galvanising is an excellent way to ensure the safety of your property while preserving its visual appeal.
When it comes to choosing between timber and metal fencing, it’s important to consider your specific requirements. While larger-scale companies often opt for high-end steel fences, smaller-scale companies may be content with timber fencing due to its initial lower cost. However, it’s essential to understand that timber fencing compromises on durability and security in the long run.
Steel fencing, on the other hand, proves to be more cost-effective in the long term. It requires less frequent replacement and offers enhanced safety for your property, as it is less susceptible to damage caused by vandals or environmental wear and tear.
While steel fencing is inherently more durable than timber, it still requires additional care to protect it from corrosion. Hot dip galvanising is an effective method to safeguard your steel fencing and enhance its longevity. Some of the advantages of galvanising steel fencing include:
Railings and fences are constantly exposed to the elements, including heavy rain and moisture. Galvanising provides a durable and long-lasting coating that shields the metal from rust and corrosion, significantly increasing the lifespan of your steel fencing.
Galvanised railings and fences require minimal maintenance compared to their ungalvanised counterparts. The galvanised coating acts as a protective layer, reducing the need for frequent upkeep. This not only saves you time and money on future maintenance treatments but also helps maintain a positive company image by keeping your fencing visually appealing.
While there may be a greater upfront cost with galvanising, the long-term savings in maintenance and replacement expenses make it a cost-effective choice. You reduce the need for frequent repairs or replacements down the line.
Galvanising is an environmentally sustainable choice. The zinc coating used in the galvanising process is 100% recyclable, making it an eco-friendly option for the industry. At Widnes Galvanising, we prioritize environmental responsibility and strive to ensure that the galvanising process aligns with a circular economy.
While many people paint their fences, paint is not the ideal coating choice for metal surfaces. Powder coating offers numerous advantages over traditional paint, while sharing many similarities.
Powder coating your galvanised fencing reduces the need for frequent maintenance, repairs, or replacements. You can choose from many different colours, textures, and finishes, so the customisation options are endless. Powder coating is offered at Joseph Ash Medway – a sister site of Widnes Galvanising.
