Galvanizing care and attention will win the race

Following what was an incredible three days of Tour de France action in July a renowned sculptor in the North East was asked to manufacture an individual piece to mark this prestigious event.

Before this fabulous cycling sculpture was hot dip galvanized a detailed pre galv inspection took place to ensure its suitability for galvanizing, with lots of tubes and hollow section within the structure it was essential that all the vent or drain holes were in the correct place, which they were.

The sculptor had the foresight to call and request a representative from Premier Galvanizing to call in and inspect the cyclist before having the item collected.

By ensuring that all the holes were in the correct place not only was it safe to galvanize it ensured that the finish complimented the hardwork and dedication it had taken to create the structure in the first place.

The nature of the fabrication dictated that a team would be required to hot fettle the item as it is being removed from the bath, the dedicated operatives from Premier Galvanizing are used to dealing with such items as we have an unrivalled reputation for taking care with these intricate fabrications.

Once galvanized there last stage of the process was to deliver the item back on our collection and delivery service.

With high value items such as these it is natural for customers to worry about the possibility of damage before, during and after galvanizing especially in transit. As can be seen with the photograph with the sculpture on the lorry the customer had nothing to worry about.

Premier Galvanizing are immensely proud to have been chosen and trusted to galvanize this sculpture.
