Aluzink – Palisade fencing:

Palisade fencing can be manufactured from mild strength steel and supplied in either an Aluzink or Galvinised finish, depending on your choice of preference.

Aluzink or the process referred to as Zincalume, a coating of aluminium and zink applied to steel sheet, provides excellent corrosion resistance when expose to most environment conditions. This makes the product it is used for, to a greater extend maintenance free – no need to paint.

Our palisade fencing product in Aluzink, has a unique shape consisting of 4 bends in the profiles which makes it exceptionally strong in relation to its weight and size.

Hot dip Galvanising – Palisade fencing & carport structures:

Our carport structures as well as the mild steel palisade fencing range, can be supplied in either painted or with a galvanised finish, depending on your choice of preference.

Galvanising can be applied to steel by different processes. With roof sheeting, a process referred to as Zendzimir (continuously hot dip galvanised steel coil), is used.

The zink coating applied on the sheet is generally referred to as Z150 or Z275 meaning that in the later case, 275g/m2 of zink is applied to the sheet (137.5g/m2 per side).

The hot dip galvanising process is applied more to fabricated products and in general will have a thicker coating to what is achieved by the Zincalume process.
