HDG Stadiums and Speedways
The most spectacular displays of talent and performance are witnessed in stadiums, speedways, and venues around the world. While a close eye is given to the performances within, the performance of the stadium itself is often overlooked. The performance of the facility itself is responsible for the safety of tens of thousands, and it is expected to function perfectly. Stadiums are held to even higher performance standards than the teams they house. Constructed with vast quantities of steel, corrosion protection is vital to the overall performance of the structure. Currently, many stadiums are not withstanding the test of time and are being compromised by corrosion. Hot-dip galvanizing (HDG) is the corrosion protection system chosen to protect the backbone of venues around the world because of its durability, low maintenance, aesthetic, sustainability, safety, and life-cycle cost.
This 6-page report details the benefits of using hot-dip galvanized steel in stadium and speedway structures, including case studies, as an aesthetically flexible, safe, low maintenance and cost effective method of resisting corrosion.
