If your building enclosure or mezzanine is exposed to harsh elements, then consider having your next Kelly building Hot-Dip Galvanized.  Hot-Dip Galvanizing is the process of coating iron and steel with a layer of zinc by immersing the metal in a bath of molten zinc at a temperature of around 840 °F (449 °C).  Hot-Dip Galvanizing is the most effective ways to protect steel from corrosion. 

Kelly Klosures’ facility is conveniently located just 10 miles from the industry leader and one of the country’s largest custom galvanizers.  This makes it very efficient for us to get product to and from, keeping cost down and staying aggressive on lead times. 

If you want corrosion protection and have a specific aesthetic you’re looking for; then ask us about painting over Hot-Dip Galvanizing.   We first use a wash primer that bonds other primers and coatings, then top coat with your color choice. You get corrosion protection with a painted color to match your existing structure or landscape.
