Technical advice on finishes, treatments and helping your fence last longer

When fencing is exposed to the elements it tends to either rust (steel fencing) or weather and rot (timber fencing).
To prevent this the fencing is treated. In this article we attempt to briefly explain some of the standard finishes available. For more information or advice, contact our sales team at 1890 930846

Steel Fencing - Galvanizing

Hot-dip galvanizing is a process of coating steel with a thin zinc layer, by passing the metal through a molten bath of zinc at a temperature of around 460 C. When exposed to the atmosphere, the zinc coating reacts with oxygen to form zinc oxide, which further reacts with carbon dioxide to form zinc carbonate, This is usually dull grey colour, and it is a coating that stops further corrosion in many circumstances, protecting the steel beneath from the elements. chanel replica handbags Depending on the local atmospheric conditions, the coating can last for 10 years or longer. Approx half of all the steel produced in the world is to replace steel which has rusted away, and so galvanizing is highly replica sale

Steel fencing - Galvanizing and plastic coating

Polyester powder colour coating can be applied on top of the galvanised coating on Mesh panels, Palisade Fencing, Railings, fence posts,and gates, but not replica This coating is achieved by baking the powder onto the product at high temperatures to produce an extra layer of weather protection for the fence, thereby increasing its life expectancy, as well as making it more attractive in appearance than a plain galvanised finish. For Chainlink and other wire fencing, the plastic coating is extruded onto the wire, before it is woven into mesh.

Timber Fencing - Tanalising

TANALISED pressure treated timber has been impregnated with TANALITH E, a waterborne product based on copper triazole technology. Copper is derived from recycled sources and triazoles are organic biodegradable biocides, commonly used to protect many of the food crops we eat. TANALISED pressure treated timber is usually specified for both in and out of ground contact applications where there is a medium to high risk of decay or insect attack.
