- Long Life
The main benefit of galvanized steel is its long life. Galvanized steel pipe, fittings and other structures can last more than 50 years in many rural areas, and more than 25 years in severely exposed urban and coastal environments.
The unique metallurgical composition of a galvanized coating makes it very rugged. Therefore, galvanized products will resist damage during transport, assembly and service.
- Low Maintenance Costs
Because of its ruggedness and long life, less effort is needed to maintain galvanized steel. This is especially beneficial when you have structures in remote locations that would be expensive to reach and service.
The galvanization process is usually standardized so that every product meets certain standards. This means that you’ll be able to accurately predict the lifespan and performance of your galvanized steel pipe, fittings and other products.
- Easy Inspection
The inspection process for galvanized pipe and fittings is simple and straightforward. Galvanized coatings can be examined by eye, and their thickness can be tested with simple, non-destructive methods. If a galvanized coating appears intact and functioning, it is intact and functioning.
