To ensure success on your project, get Metalplate involved as early as possible. The most successful projects have been those where Metalplate Galvanizing was consulted prior to the start of fabrication. Metalplate will offer or be amenable to meet with the Engineer, Contractor, and Fabricator. At that time, agreements should be finalized on the application of current standards, practices, conditions and/or allowable variations. Because of its potential influence on galvanized coating development, the selection of steel chemistry should also be discussed. Additional items that should be considered include:

  Inspection criteria

  Allowable repair / touch-up techniques and amounts

  Design and fabrication techniques which promote quality coatings

  Maximum sizes and weights which can be accommodated

  The amount of pregalvanizing fabrication to be done
