Pro-deck galvanizing project

Galvanised car racking system.

We were recently asked to hot dip galvanize, on behalf of Pro-Dek Storage, 160 tonnes of steel racking to support cars for the vehicle salvage industry, to provide a long lasting, maintenance free racking system.

The challenge

With any type of racking system whether it is a simple pallet system or an industrial one such as the one used by the vehicle salvage industry the importance of fit is paramount. Although the steel is mainly straight lengths and reasonably simple to galvanize the end plates on the arms need to be clean in order to achieve a flush fit against the main member of the racking system. In order to achieve the best possible finish the arms were all hung on 2 points at 45 degrees to ensure that the end plates would fit flush and speed up the erection process.

The end client was keen to have the 160 tonne of racking erected within 8 weeks, this meant Premier Galvanizing supplied an article, collected it from the fabricator on the Monday and delivered to site on the Friday.

Throughout the project there were no late deliveries and no missing items.

The end result

The racking was supplied to site on time and erected on time to the clients specifications, providing an easily accessible racking system, which has lead to further orders.
