The Solar Canopy in Chicago is made of galvanized steel.
Hot dip galvanizing is proven to be the best way to improve steel’s durability and performance. It is a simple process that gives huge benefits to your installations. Galvanized coating is also maintenance-free giving you a safe solution to your asset management. As life-cycle costing is also extremely essential, galvanizing provides the facility to design for a predictable, engineered result.
Hot dip galvanizing protects steel from corrosion by providing a thick, tough, metallurgically bonded zinc envelope, which completely covers the steel surface and seals it from the corrosive action of its environment.
Galvanization gives steel 10 proven and guaranteed benefits:
1. Lowest first cost among all protective coatings for steel.
2. Easiness of maintenance/the cheapest in long-term
3. Long life
5. Toughest coating
6. Automatic protection for damaged areas
