All our metalwork is supplied as standard having been galvanised by dipping in molten zinc to protect the metal against corrosion to BS EN ISO 1461 (1999) standard, a coloured finish along with enhanced durability can be achieved by a factory applied polyester powder coating or on site applied wet painting.
Our standard powder coating colours are Black RAL 9005 and Moss Green RAL 6005. Many other colours are available some of which will be available within the standard rate and some which will attract a surcharge dependent on the availability of that certain colour. For further information on your choice of colour please do not hesitate to contact our Sales Department.
Why do galvanised materials change appearance over time?
When first taking delivery of a freshly galvanised product such as pedestrian guardrail, many customers will be delighted by its shiny, glistening appearance. Within weeks, the metalwork will have faded into a matte grey colour. What causes this? See our article in the Resource Hub for more information on galvanising.
