What is Galvanizing?

Temporary fence panels for sale steel ground standsGalvanizing refers to a process of applying a protective coating of zinc to temporary fence panels. This coating helps to prevent corrosion and rust, extending the lifespan of the fence panels and ensuring their durability even in harsh outdoor conditions.

During the galvanization process, the fence panels are typically immersed in a bath of molten zinc or sprayed with a zinc coating. The zinc adheres to the surface of the panels, creating a barrier that protects the underlying metal from exposure to moisture, oxygen, and other corrosive elements.

Galvanizing is commonly used for temporary fence panels because they are often installed outdoors for extended periods of time and subjected to various weather conditions. The galvanized coating acts as a sacrificial layer, meaning that if the fence panels are scratched or damaged, the zinc coating will corrode first, protecting the underlying metal from rusting.

By galvanizing temporary fence panels, their resistance to rust and corrosion is significantly improved, allowing them to maintain their structural integrity and aesthetic appearance over an extended period. This makes them suitable for use in construction sites, events, crowd control, and other temporary fencing applications where durability and longevity are important factors.

Galvanized steel fencing will not rust, rot or burn.  Panels are suitable for hanging company signage, but are entirely unsuitable to vandals as a surface for graffiti and/or unauthorized postering.  Unlike plywood hoarding, galvanized steel fencing can be repaired over and over again, and is 100% recyclable at the end of its life, making it a more environmentally-friendly choice for securing construction sites.  For more information, visit http://www.galvanizeit.org/.
