Galvanised steel beams

Galvanised steel beams

Galvanised steel is coated with zinc, which protects any exposed surfaces. If these are damaged the zinc will corrode, rather than the steel itself. Galvanised steel is widely used in the building, automotive, agricultural and other industries where steel needs to be protected from corrosion.
