This is the fourth in a six-part story describing the metal railings and gates production process. We explain how your order will be dealt with, right from the initial enquiry, through to the supply and installation of the finished metalwork.
In order to ensure each metal railing, gate, archway or other bespoke metal work product lasts the test of time and is protected against the elements all our steelwork is galvanized prior to being powder coated or painted.
You may have noticed that some railings and gates have rust stains running down them – this can be because they were not galvanized to protect it from rain, snow and other inclement weather conditions prior to being powder coated or painted.
All our metalwork is supplied as standard having been galvanized by dipping in molten zinc to protect the metal against corrosion to BS EN ISO 1461 (1999) standard.
Following the galvanizing process, all metalwork goes through a fettling process to remove rough edges and ensure all surfaces are smoother to the touch ready for being powder coated or painted in the desired colour choice.
