Hot dipped galvanizing provides sacrificial protection and weathers at a slower rate providing a long predictable life span.
For this particular line of trailers TSE was interested in adding a more robust exterior coating to their tension stringing equipment systems that would deliver improved protection from environmental elements such as corrosion and provide a better value to their customer. These units were designated to ship to Puerto Rico to assist with rebuilding the electrical infrastructure after the devastation of Hurricane Maria. Hot dipped galvanizing’s long proven success was the perfect option for these utility trailers. Protection from corrosion begins at the drawing board and must be factored into the design of the product from the very start. Effective communication between the fabricator and galvanizer was key in achieving a suitably fabricated product for a high quality galvanized coating which will deliver a lifetime of corrosion protection.Low initial cost and a lifetime protection from corrosion makes hot dip galvanizing the most versatile and environmentally friendly means to protect TSE International’s tension stringing units while maintaining its structural integrity. Hot dipped galvanizing ensures the trailer frame is adequately protected from corrosion by coating all parts of the surface - inside, outside, and those awkward corners and narrow gaps.Hot dipped galvanizing offers the greatest resistance to the harsh outdoor elements. It also provides sacrificial protection and weathers at a slower rate providing a long predictable life span. By choosing hot dipped galvanizing as their choice for corrosion protection, TSE International is committed to providing a product to their customers with a lifetime of corrosion protection.
