Product Description

Galvanized Steel

Galvanized steel is produced by coating the steel in zinc. The properties of galvanized steel are a unique combination that make it ideal for use in exterior applications such as construction support frame, including Rainscreen Cladding.

Galvanized steel is among the most popular steel types because of its extended durability, having the strength and formability of steel plus the corrosion protection of the zinc-iron coating. The zinc protects the base metal by acting as a barrier to corrosive elements, and the sacrificial nature of the coating results in a long-lasting and high-quality steel product.

Technical features

  • Whether for residential or commercial, the durability of galvanized steel has made it popular for over a century in the construction industry
  • Galvanized steel is immediately ready to use when delivered. It does not require additional preparation of the surface, inspections, painting/coatings, etc. sparing companies more costs on their end.
  • Last more than 50 years in average environments, and over 20 years with severe water exposure. There is no maintenance required.
