Looking for an Aluminum Fencing Installation Contractor in San Bernardino, CA?
Wood fencing can call itself a classic, and wrought iron sure thinks it’s hot stuff, but neither one can compare with aluminum. Whether you need to enclose a residential, commercial, or industrial space, aluminum fencing will work beautifully. It’s strong, reliable, and requires very little maintenance. So if you were set on a wood or wrought iron fence, we urge you to consider aluminum as a worthwhile alternative. And if you’re wary (assuming aluminum won’t boast the same benefits as wood and wrought iron), just read on. The many benefits of aluminum fencing may surprise you.
Although all aluminum fencing may seem the same, there is much more to a quality aluminum fence than what you notice on the surface. The two main components that contribute to the manufacturing cost are the strength of the alloy used for the horizontal rails of the fence and the type of finish applied. Being in business 48 years, Specrail knows what it takes to make a quality product. They use a 6105-T5-35,000 PSI alloy that is one of the strongest in the industry. For the finish they choose to use an environmentally approved high-solids acrylic paint finish, trade named POLYCOLOR® which meets AAMA 603.8 specifications. This is the same type of finish you will see on current automobiles, commercial window frames, hotel railings, and even the automatic doors at your local Wal-Mart. It comes with a lifetime warranty against rusting, cracking, chipping, and peeling.
Difference between aluminum and galvanized steel is obtained by comparing the properties of both. Aluminum is a metal, and it has all the attributes of metal – that are: It is ductile, corrosion resistant, flexible and a good thermal conductor. Aluminum is also weather resistant, and can be machined, thinned into wires and sheets or soldered. Aluminum makes alloys in conjunction with other metals, and aluminum alloys are known for their lightweight and cost effective properties. Whereas galvanized steel is obtained, carbon steel is dipped in molten zinc which clings onto the steel like a thin film. Steel is an alloy of iron, and known for its strength, and used as a construction or building material. It can corrode, and in order to make it anti corrosive the galvanization process of steel is necessary. An Italian Luigi Galvani invented this process to ensure that steel can be saved from corrosion or rust by a coating of zinc.
The galvanization process for carbon steel produces various affects which helps in manufacturing various parts of industrial objects, and it is available in various forms. Galvanized steel is also used for building housing frames, truck and bus bodies, household appliances, electrical towers, metal pails, and for other various items integral for our usage in daily life.
