Use Cases for Hot-Dip Galvanized Fencing

Fences are a staple in many aspects of society and particularly in agriculture, where they’re tasked with the protection of livestock and vulnerable crops or equipment. However, they’re not invincible. Wood rots, steel rusts, and stone cracks.

So, how do we protect the very things we’ve installed for protection? The answer is hot-dip galvanization, which makes the steel stronger, longer-lasting, and resilient against all sorts of damage and allows fences to excel in an impressive variety of use cases.

Use Cases for Hot-Dip Galvanized Fencing

There are a lot of uses for galvanized steel fencing. While many people choose the superior protection and durability for agricultural purposes, the benefits can have creative applications. Let’s explore a few of the possibilities for using galvanized steel fencing.

Sound Dampening Barrier

The Department of Transportation and Development in Louisiana has chosen to use galvanized steel fencing to create a barrier alongside Interstate 12. The tough galvanized properties of the barrier allow it to dampen the sound of traffic for local residents while ensuring it will last a long time with little maintenance.

Sound and Weather Dampening

Likewise, a galvanized steel barrier is being used alongside I-465 in Indiana. The durable nature of the barrier will allow it to withstand the corrosive salt used on the interstate during the tough Midwest winters.

Chicken Barn

There are nearly endless examples of galvanized steel being used in structures to house animals. For instance, Versova has constructed a barn to house around 200,000 chickens using galvanization.

Not only will the structure have the sturdiness and long lifespan of galvanized steel, but the galvanization process results in metals that are environmentally safe and free of any toxins or pollutants that might harm the barn’s inhabitants.

Any Day Now Farm in Kentucky has also leveraged galvanized steel for everything from horse stall gates to fence paneling to provide efficiency and durability alongside aesthetics.

Defying the Forces of Nature
Galvanized fencing is a stalwart first line of defense against the elements in all their fury. Unlike other materials, it can take a beating from all sides in all weather and remain standing strong.

Rust

Untreated steel and iron are at the mercy of moisture and oxidation, rusting away and requiring frequent maintenance and cleaning.

Galvanized steel, on the other hand, turns away rust with its impenetrable zinc-alloy coating. Zinc is a natural rust repellent and the perfect material to protect vulnerable metals against corrosion.

Weather

The winds buffet, downpours soak, hail pelts and batters, storms rumble, and none of it matters to galvanized steel fencing. Not only is the zinc-alloy coating resistant to moisture and rust, it’s also strong against abrasions. That means no amount of debris or falling rocks of ice will penetrate to the steel underneath. And, because of that resistance to abrasion, any cleaning or repainting that needs to be done will be easier on the smooth, galvanized surface of the fencing.

Time

The most powerful force of all, time moves through all things in an unstoppable wave of change and erosion. And while a galvanized steel fence will eventually succumb and need repairing or replacement, it could be decades before that happens. Galvanized fencing doesn’t just last years, it lasts generations.

Affordable and Efficient Protection that Lasts

All of these benefits might seem like they should come with a high price tag to match, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, galvanized steel fencing actually saves money.

Sturdier fencing means less damage, which means less money spent on repairs and maintenance. Less maintenance means fewer man hours spent on the fencing, which means more time to work on other things. Longer lasting galvanized steel means fewer replacements than stone, wood or untreated steel, and a stronger fence means better protection for everything inside of its protective barrier.
