Hot-dip galvanizing describes the process by which steel is coated with zinc, which alloys with the surface of the steel. The steel is dipped in molten zinc, and when exposed to the atmosphere forms a strong coating that will buffet against wear and corrosion.
The process of hot-dipped galvanized steel dates back to the 1800’s, when in 1837 a French engineer took out a patent for the process of galvanizing steel. By 1850 the British galvanizing industry was consuming 10,000 tons of zinc annually for the production of galvanized steel.
Hot-dip galvanizing has only become more used over time, with 600,000 tons of zinc being consumed annually in North America to produce hot-dipped galvanized steel. Now galvanizing is found in almost every industry where steel is used. The process as a proven history of success which continues to grow in multiple applications globally.
Galvanized steel is therefore a superior product against others the industry of building and construction. This is why at Central Steel Build we hot-dip galvanize all of our components for our sheds, contributing to a better quality and longer lasting product, that protects against rust and corrosion in rural environments in Australia.
Sheds and Garages in Sunbury
At Central Steel Build, we’ve been building sheds and garages in Sunbury and the Hume area since 1975. Based only a 30 minute drive away, some of our earliest sheds were erected in Sunbury and we’ve since built hundreds, from small backyard sheds to large industrial sheds.
Our sheds are custom designed, engineered and manufactured locally at our Kyneton offices, just 51km away from Sunbury. Our central location allows us to service all of the Macedon Ranges area and most of regional Victoria.
We design and construct the following types of buildings in Sunbury and surrounding areas:
Other Steel Framed Buildings
See below some of the projects that we have constructed in Sunbury in the past:
1. Machinery Shed
We crane lift large and industrial sheds, as you can see in this photo of a machinery shed being lifted in Sunbury.
2. Storage Shed Extension
We often revisit existing projects to add extensions or expand sheds we’ve built in the past.
3. Residential Shed
This residential shed offers vehicle storage as well as an additional shed space for private use. Sheds like this are popular on Sunbury farms and homes.
