Galvanizing is a process in which zinc or another metal coating is applied to a dense base black metal giving it anti-corrosion properties that protect it from corrosion and surrounding environment elements. When a metal is not galvanized it's directly exposed to the elements and risks becoming oxidized and corroding at a faster pace. Galvanized steel offers one of the most affordable ways to protect metals when compared to other protective coatings for steel.
Ducting supplies that are constructed of galvanized steel are not only shielded from environments, but also from water and moisture that can corrode underneath. In the event that the zinc coating is scratched deep enough and your steel ducting becomes exposed it may begin corroding.
Because Nordfab Quick-Fit® galvanized pipes consist of resilient materials nearly all outdoor applications prefer them over other plastic pipes like PVC or ABS. Not only are galvanized steel products ideal for outside applications, they also excel in operations that produce wood, lead and cement dust, vehicle, paint booth and coffee roaster exhaust, welding fume, and are utilized to manage overall dust extraction.
Nordfab manufacturers Quick-Fit clamp together ducting supplies in galvanized steel to provide commercial and industrial installers and designers a reliable, secure and effective way to apply and relocate ductwork. By implementing a Nordfab ducting system, industry experts no longer have to worry about caulking which saves them almost 50% of installation time. Our clamp together products are laser leak-tight welded systems that ensure ductwork is air tight. Dispose of areas where bugs can harbor, remove snagging areas that damage leak-free structures and implement products that are adaptable to already installed ductwork without being required to install a new system!

Benefits of Using Galvanized Steel in Ductwork
Heavy-duty coating: Galvanized steel ducts have a coating that is made up of a special metallic structure to resist mechanical damage
Cost efficient: Galvanized steel ductwork is the most cost-friendly and is standard for most applications because it lasts longer and requires less maintenance
Long lasting: Galvanized coating is generally expected to last up to 50 years in most rural environments and 25+ in urban and coastal areas
Total protection: The entire line of Nordfab galvanized products is completely protected from corrosion, rust, water and moisture damage, even in inaccessible areas
