Transportation

Companies of all industries and sectors rely on transportation in one way or another. Whether land, sea or air, steel is used and is vital in containing and transporting goods far and wide. Therefore, it’s important to ensure steel used for transportation remains durable and corrosion-resistant to withstand long journeys and heavy loads.

Keep the logistics and transportation sector running optimally with hot dip galvanizing.

Galvanizing trailer chassis

Galvanizing trailer chassis is essential for extending their lifespan and maintaining their structural integrity for miles on the road.

Whether you are in the logistics, shipping, or heavy transport industry, galvanized steel ensures your equipment remains corrosion-free, even when exposed to the harshest road conditions and weather elements.

Long-lasting railway tracks

Railway tracks are the backbone of the transportation industry. Galvanizing railway tracks and their components ensures they remain robust and corrosion-resistant. This not only extends their lifespan but also reduces maintenance costs, ensuring a smooth and reliable rail network.

Safer roads and highways

Galvanizing can be used to keep roads and highways safe, too. From guardrails to signposts, galvanized steel structures can withstand harsh weather conditions, ensuring that signs remain visible and guardrails can minimise damage in the case of an accident.

Case study: The Mersey Gateway Bridge

The Mersey Gateway Bridge was built as part of the Mersey Gateway Project – a major civil engineering scheme.

Concerns about the effect of high winds on crossing vehicles led to the fabrication of a wind-deflecting barrier, which required steel support posts and clamping brackets. Joseph Ash Galvanizing galvanized the support posts, protecting against atmospheric attack.

Steel being powder coated in a bright red colour

Powder coating trailer chassis, shipping containers and other steel in conjunction with hot dip galvanizing can help it stand out on the road. Available in a wide range of colours and finishes, your vibrant brand colours will be eye-catching on the road, increasing visibility and awareness for your company.

The best part? Powder coating offers an extended lifespan for galvanized steel.
