We all have come across a metal fence on a highway or at the side of road or on motor way in our daily life. But ever wonder; what is the purpose of that metal fence which we see or what it is called. Well that metal fence is known as Crash Barrier. From the name we can easily make out that its purpose is to handle crashes. But in reality the truth is far away, the actual purpose of the metal fence is decapitate the impact of the crash, which in turn helps in saving the lives of the people involved in the crash. Further these crash barriers also helps in dividing pedestrian walking aisle from that of the street, protecting the pedestrian from an oncoming crash by decapitating the impact of the crash from moving on to the walking aisle.
It is because of this life saving act that crash barriers performs, while being exposed to all types of weather conditions they need galvanization.
Let’s walk you through what is galvanization and why crash barriers need galvanization!
What is Galvanization?
The galvanization of crash barrier highlights coating the metal barrier by submerging it into a bath of molten zinc. The bath of molten zinc showcases temperatures around 840°F (449°C). Once removed from the bath, the zinc coating on the metal’s exterior reacts with oxygen in the atmosphere to form (Zno) Zinc oxide. This Zinc oxide further reacts with carbon dioxide in the atmosphere to form a more compact protective layer known as (ZnCO3) Zinc carbonate. This Zinc carbonate reflects a dull grayish film, which is relatively stable and adheres tightly to the surface of the metal. This in turn helps you protect the metal of crash barriers from natural calamities and external elements.
Now that we have understood what galvanization of crash barriers is, let’s walk you through why you need it for crash barriers.
