Galvanising protects gardeners
Gardeners in Scotland will be protected from the elements due to the work successfully completed by Wessex Galvanizers, part of the Wedge Galvanizing Group.
Wessex has galvanised structural steelwork for a new 960m² covered plant retail area at a garden centre at Bishopton, Renfrewshire. The centre is part of Erskine Hospital and Care Home for ex-servicemen and women.
The steelwork was galvanised for a Wessex customer that specialises in polytunnels, canopies and other steel framed buildings used in retail, agriculture and leisure industries.
The garden centre has a twin span canopy design with cantilevered arch sections, covered with flame retardant PVC.
“The permanent storage and display of many plants inside the new structure will create an environment with very high moisture levels. We were delighted to be asked to galvanise the steel for maximum protection in this highly corrosive atmosphere,” said Richard Whiddet, Sales Manager at Wessex Galvanizers.
