Galvanized steel pipe used in greenhouse applications
Among all the different materials commonly used in greenhouse frames, galvanized steel pipe is regarded as a popular frame material in greenhouse applications today. As it is well acknowledged, steel is very flexible, and easy to modify and customize according to your personal preference. It also has this natural beauty praised by many architects which makes them more excited to work with steel compared to other materials.
In general, steel, available in many forms for intended purposes other than greenhouse building, can be adapted to many shapes and sizes of greenhouses. In the current steel pipe market, galvanized steel pipe is widely used as structural steel pipe for greenhouse frames. For one thing, the galvanization process protects the steel from rusting damage that can occur during transportation, installation and service. The zinc layer on the surface of pipe can form a barrier protection for steel products to extend the service life in applications. For the other thing, this layer is also resistant to wear and scratch, which makes the steel look more attractive.
In the steel pipe market, hot dipped galvanized steel pipe is often considered as the top choice for frame material in structural applications because of its good anti-corrosion in service over time. With the layer of protection, pipes can be used in outdoor areas, and can withstand the harm from some of the environmental effects. Testing and studies have revealed that the average life expectancy for galvanized steel used as a typical structure material is well beyond 50 years in a rural environment and 20-25 years or more in an extreme urban or coastal setting. If you choose a galvanized pipe, you can avoid the cost of maintaining and replacing corroded pipes. With galvanized pipe, your pipes can last a lot longer than a non galvanized one, which will save you a lot of money in the project. And since even galvanized steel will eventually rust, it’s a good idea to paint the steel frame with a white paint. In addition to protecting the frame, the white paint will help to reflect a bit of additional light into the interior of the greenhouse. In addition, it can not be denied that strength is the greatest advantage of building a steel framed greenhouse. Cold rolled steel pipe offers great strength and is relatively easy to form into a rounded bow or arch.
