In comparison to other industries, over 36% of galvanized steel use is in the construction industry. When you think of the amount of construction work we see on our daily commute it is not a surprising figure really. Steel is harder and stronger than iron like the old days of construction. Steel is very diverse and affordable to work with and so it really is the material of choice when it comes to construction projects. There are several applications that benefit from galvanizing, including:

  • Structural steel work
  • Balconies
  • Balustrades
  • Fire escapes
  • Flooring
  • Trench sheeting
  • Scaffolding

As we strive for a more modern society, galvanizing has never been more important in construction. For example, think of the many bridges that have been enhanced with the help of a protective layer of zinc, enhancing their longevity and keeping pedestrians and road users safe when in use.

The environment

However, with construction comes some environmental damage, which Corbetts cares very deeply about. You can rest assured that galvanizing is environmentally friendly, as the durability provided by hot dip galvanizing does minimal harm in terms of how much energy is used.
