Long-term protection for leading steelwork manufacturer

A national galvanizing company is celebrating a five year partnership with a leading architectural metal worker and security specialist to supply its specialist one-coat paint solution.

Wedge Group Galvanizing’s Haverhill-based plant, Acrow Galvanizing, has been working with the team at Mr Gates to provide its one-coat polyurethane solution, Galvacoat®, for a variety of projects including gates, railings, and balconies, to protect them against the elements, ensure longevity and to add a range of colour.
Sunil Chandarana, Commercial Director at Mr Gates, explained: “We operate from our dedicated workshop and offices in Berkhamsted to provide our clients with a range of hand-crafted and bespoke pieces, which includes large gates, architectural structures, balconies and specialist pieces for local authorities, which we manufacture from ferrous and non-ferrous, standard and sheet metalwork. These complement our range of security products including Automation, CCTV and Access Control.

“Our clients request a very high standard of finish, and by using Galvacoat® we’re able to offer them the added reassurance of long-term protection against corrosion and rust, whilst having the addition of colour, which gives a natural sheen and flexibility of design. It’s also a very quick and straightforward application, which works well on steelwork of any size and shape, so it’s a great all-rounder.”

Mr Gates also specialises in the design, manufacture, delivery and installation of architectural pieces which require careful handling, and has been a loyal customer of Acrow Galvanizing and the wider Wedge Group Galvanizing since 2013. Galvacoat® is specifically designed for use on galvanized steel and is engineered to adhere to the steel whilst offering a long lifecycle, an attractive range of colours, and durability.

Mark Endsleigh, Commercial Support Manager at Wedge Group Galvanizing, added: “We’ve enjoyed a long-term partnership with the team at Mr Gates, who usually purchase Galvacoat® in Black RAL 9005 or Anthracite Grey 7016 to complement their eye-catching works which are installed across the UK.”

Wedge Group Galvanizing is one of the largest hot dip galvanizing organisations in the UK with a history dating back over 150 years. With 14 plants strategically placed across the country, they offer a truly national galvanizing service.
