Hot-Dip Galvanized Brace Arm for Fence

Hello everyone, we are Fenceshop, and today we will talk about a crucial component for your fences: the hot-dip galvanized brace arm. Marco will show you all the technical features and uses of this indispensable product for those seeking durability and strength.

Technical Specifications of the Hot-Dip Galvanized Brace Arm

The hot-dip galvanized brace arm is a key element for fences, especially in agricultural and industrial contexts. The hot-dip galvanization process makes the brace arm stainless, ensuring long-lasting durability. Here are some technical specifications:

  • Material: hot-dip galvanized steel.
  • Available sizes: 25x25x3 mm and 30x30x3 mm.
  • Surface treatment: hot-dip galvanization that provides a rough and matte finish.
  • Durability: resistance to atmospheric agents and corrosion thanks to hot-dip galvanization.
Uses of the Hot-Dip Galvanized Brace Arm

The hot-dip galvanized brace arm is particularly suitable for agricultural and industrial uses. It is common to see fully galvanized fences in countries like Switzerland, where durability is a crucial factor. However, it is not recommended for residential fences due to its less aesthetic appearance compared to other options.

Installation and Placement

As for the installation, the process is the same as for green or anthracite brace arms. The main difference lies in the surface treatment. Hot-dip galvanization makes the brace arm surface slightly rough and matte. It is normal for the brace arm to develop a white powder after some time outdoors, which is simply zinc oxide and not a production defect.

The hook on the brace arm serves two main purposes:

  • To hang the brace arm during the galvanization or plastic coating process.
  • To secure the brace arm in the concrete underground, acting as an anchor. Alternatively, it can be used to create a loop to insert a wall plug when fastening the brace arm to a wall.

In conclusion, the hot-dip galvanized brace arm is an excellent choice for those looking for a durable and resistant solution for their agricultural or industrial fences.
