Why are the poles galvanised?

The galvanising process is pretty simple, when the poles are manufactured the metal is sealed from all corrosion and oxidation. The steel poles are hot dipped in to a bath of molten zinc at temperatures exceeding 800 degrees Fahrenheit adding a bonded coating to the steel for extra protection.

These poles have been put through the galvanizing process to ensure that they are environmentally friendly and also strong and hard wearing, resistant to rust and have an increased life span.

Buying steel scaffold tube is slightly more expensive than other poles available and this is due to the galvanising, however you will save your money in the long run as these steel tubes will require far less maintenance or replacing.
