One Wangaratta business man is a convert to the benefits of hot dip galvanising and says he wouldn’t build a shed without it now.
He recently built a farm storage shed, which is 30m by 18m and 6m high.
The shed features a large cantilever canopy on one side and also has two large industrial roller shutters.
He’s built industrial warehouses with Steelcorp in the past, so it was an easy decision to choose Steelcorp to build a storage shed on his farm near Wangaratta.
He was confident Steelcorp would build him another quality shed, with little fuss.
“There were no dramas, it was all good,” he says.
His favourite feature of the shed is the cantilever canopy.
“It keeps the weather out of the shed when it’s open,” he says.
“After having it, I wouldn’t build another shed without it.”
The steel structure will be converted to a shearing shed in the future, so weather protection is important.
He also enjoys not having poles in the way when moving in and out of the shed.
“Hot dipped galvanising is another thing I wouldn’t go without,” he says.
“A shed’s a shed, unless it’s got hot dipped gal, then it’s better.”
Shed frames can be hot dipped in gal as an alternative to traditional painting.
The service incurs a larger cost, but many Steelcorp customers, including this businessman, have found that it’s a worthwhile investment.
He says he has seen how fast a shed can start to show rust without hot dip gal and that it was important to protect a shed asset.
