Fences and fixtures that weigh a lot require strong posts that can not only withstand the load but also help your fences stand the test of time. While numerous options exist, none can compare to the superiority of galvanised steel posts that combine aesthetics, durability, and affordability that will help enhance your property.
Benefits of galvanised steel posts
Galvanised steel is the result of a coating process called galvanisation that applies a protective zinc coating to steel or iron. Through this process, galvanised steel has become the answer to an ever-increasing demand for strong and cost-efficient material for manufacturing and construction.
When compared to other materials like copper and brass, galvanised steel makes for the perfect fencing posts which can benefit you and your home in the areas of…
Apart from being strong enough to support both timber and steel fences, galvanised steel posts are also abrasive and corrosion resistant, making them perfect for outdoor use. Galvanised steel is made to industrial-grade standards, giving them a guaranteed life expectancy of fifteen years.
Thanks to the zinc coating which protects the underlying steel or iron, galvanised posts are able to withstand all manner of weather conditions without the need for regular maintenance or repair. The same galvanisation process also helps damaged areas of the posts to last as long as undamaged areas, and unlike wooden posts, are easily fixed or replaced in the unlikely event of bending.
Galvanisation is a relatively easy and highly efficient process that can be done in a short period of time and at a much lower cost. Galvanised steel posts are also easily installed, sometimes without the need for concreting unlike wooden posts, which make galvanised steel posts affordable without compromising on durability.
