What’s The Hype with our Strong Portable Walls?
So, what’s the hype about our interior support frame? For those of you who like details, I’m going to give them to you. You’ll discover that the interior support of our portable walls is a steel. Not a “steal” but a steel. We actually use a 20 gauge galvanized steel support frame.
Why use galvanized steel nails?
Steel is strong. Our society is built of concrete and steel. There are three reasons we use galvanized steel versus other metals.
- Less Maintenance-Galvanized steel lasts longer than other metals. Specifically, galvanized steel resists corrosion.
- Long Life-The life expectancy of galvanized steel has an excess of over 50 years.
- Toughest Coating-The galvanized coating has a unique metallurgical structure which gives it a strong resistance to damage.
The first reported use of galvanizing was in 1742. A French chemist named P. J. Malouin presented galvanized iron to the French Royal Academy. By 1850, over ten million tons of zinc was used to protect steel from the elements.
Today, galvanized steel is used in almost every industry. The utilities, paper, automotive, transportation, chemical, building, among many other industries, have used galvanized steel. Galvanized steel has been around for over 150 years.
