What corrosion protection alternatives are available?
The choice for the adequate corrosion protection depends on the project. There is no minimum protection obligation for components, as corrosion will depend on many factors beyond our scope. Gantrex can apply most of the usual solutions on the components of the fixing system such as galvanization or special painted systems before or after installation.
Sometimes, even choosing for no protection at all may be best, referring to the cost or practicability, since rail and clip upper components can be easily replaced. It is good practice to choose corrosion protection for embedded parts of the fixing system that may be difficult or expensive to replace. All rail systems should be inspected in compliance with local codes and standards. Gantrex can help by advising you about inspection criteria, and is available to provide rail and track system inspections.
