Galvanised Trays

Silverback Steel Ute Tray Backs are galvanised – here’s why this is important for you.

The use of galvanising for structural steel protection gives you ten major, measurable benefits.

  1. Lowest first cost.
    Galvanising is lower in first cost than many other commonly specified protective coatings for steel (The application cost of labour intensive coatings such as painting has risen far more than the cost of factory operations such as galvanising).
  2. Less maintenance / Lowest long term cost.
    Even in cases where the initial cost of galvanising is higher than alternative coatings, galvanising is almost invariably cheapest in the long term (because it lasts longer and needs less maintenance). Maintenance causes problems and adds to costs when structures are located in remote areas, and when plant shutdown or disruption to production is involved.
  3. Long life.
    The life expectancy of galvanised coatings on typical structural members is far in excess of 50 years in most rural environments, and even 20 to 25 years plus in severe urban and coastal exposure.
  4. Reliability.
    Galvanising is carried out to Australian / New Zealand Standard 4680, and standard, minimum coating thicknesses are applied. Coating life and performance are reliable and predictable.
  5. Toughest coating.
    A galvanised coating has a unique metallurgical structure which gives outstanding resistance to mechanical damage in transport, erection and service.
  6. Automatic protection for damaged areas.
    Galvanised coatings corrode preferentially to steel, providing cathodic or sacrificial protection to small areas of steel exposed through damage. Unlike organic coatings, small damaged areas need no touch up.
  7. Complete protection.
    Every part of a galvanised article is protected – even recesses, sharp corners and inaccessible areas. No coating applied to a structure or fabrication after completion can provide the same protection.
  8. Ease of inspection.
    Galvanised coatings are assessed readily by eye, and simple non-destructive thickness testing methods can be used. The galvanising process is such that if coatings appear sound and continuous, they are sound and continuous.
  9. Faster erection time.
    As galvanised steel members are received they are ready for use. No time is lost on-site in surface preparation, painting and inspection. When assembly of the structure is complete, it is immediately ready for use, or for the next construction stage.
  10. A full protective coating can be applied in minutes.
    The galvanising process is not dependent on weather conditions.
