Galvanised Steel Shipping Container Dome Shelter Frames

Advanced Engineering of Steel Truss Frames

At Quality Domes Direct, we prioritise structural integrity and durability in all our shelters and a critical component of our galvanised steel truss frames. Engineered for resilience and strength, these frames form the backbone of every shipping container dome and general shelter we sell.

Hot-Dip Galvanizing – The Superior Choice

Exceptional Corrosion Resistance: When you invest hard-earned money into something, you want it to last and perform to your expectations and beyond. It’s the same with our shelters, because we wanted to make shelter frames of all shapes and sizes that stand up to the unpredictable Australian weather. The obvious choice was to apply a hot-dip galvanising process to every frame and component. Hot-dip galvanising is a process where the bare steel is coated in a layer of zinc. This zinc coating is not merely superficial; it provides multifaceted corrosion resistance for the roof truss frame as well as the front and end wall frames. Essentially, galvanising creates a protective barrier which acts as a resilient shield against environmental elements.

Beyond mere surface-level protection, galvanising also provides cathodic protection. In simple terms, when a piece of steel is galvanised, zinc totally covers the steel and corrodes first, keeping the steel underneath safe and structurally intact. As long as the zinc layer is there, the steel doesn’t rust. If the steel is exposed to damage, the surrounding zinc will corrode before the steel. Additionally, over time, the zinc develops a patina, a durable and protective layer formed by weathering, further enhancing its resistance to corrosion.

Durability and Toughness: The galvanized coating we use significantly enhances the abrasion and impact resistance of our shelter frames. This makes each component we product extremely well-suited for demanding outdoor environments where structures are exposed to and impacted by adverse weather. This durability ensures that the shelter can withstand heavy forces without compromising the structural integrity.

Low Maintenance Needs: The self-healing properties of the zinc coating means that minor scratches or damage will repair themselves over time, reducing the need for ongoing maintenance. This feature is particularly beneficial in remote environments where frequent maintenance is not easily carried out, ensuring that the shelters remain in the best possible condition with minimal upkeep.

Versatile Applications: The robust nature of our galvanized steel truss frames extends their usability beyond typical uses. Whether used in harsh coastal regions, exposed mountainous sites, or corrosive industrial environments, the galvanised frames maintain their integrity and performance. This versatility makes our shelters ideal for a wide range of applications, including but not limited to industrial warehousing, agricultural storage, and construction site housing.

Sustainability and Environmental Responsibility: In line with our commitment to sustainability, the materials used in our truss frame – zinc and steel – are abundantly available and fully recyclable, without degradation of their properties. This recyclability plays a crucial role in reducing the overall environmental footprint, and supports the construction industry’s move towards more sustainable practices.

The key benefits of hot-dip galvanising are:

  1. Corrosion resistance – The zinc coating on our dome shelter frames provides three levels of protection against corrosion: barrier protection, cathodic protection, and the formation of a zinc patina. This allows galvanised steel to resist corrosion for decades, even in harsh environments.
  2. Durability – The galvanised coating is highly abrasion and impact resistant, making galvanized steel durable and able to withstand heavy use.
  3. Low maintenance – Once galvanised, the steel requires minimal ongoing maintenance, as the zinc coating is self-healing if scratched or damaged.
  4. Sustainability – Zinc and steel are both abundant, natural materials that can be infinitely recycled without losing their properties.
  5. Cost-effectiveness – Galvanising is generally lower in initial and long-term costs compared to other corrosion protection coatings.
  6. Reliability – The galvanising process ensures consistent, predictable coating thicknesses and performance.
  7. Complete coverage – The full immersion process ensures the entire steel structure, including base plates, base rails, truss components, clips, brackets and nuts and bolts, is evenly coated.
  8. Ease of inspection – The galvanised coating can be easily visually inspected for condition.
  9. Faster installation – Galvanised steel is ready for immediate use, without the need for additional surface preparation or curing time.

In summary, hot-dip galvanizing provides long-lasting corrosion protection, durability, low maintenance, versatility, and sustainability – making it a highly beneficial and cost-effective solution for protecting steel – and your investment in a shipping container mounted dome shelter.
