Gatorshield® Advantages for Your Greenhouse Structures

  • Superior Strength – Minimum 50,000 psi yield strength and 55,000 psi tensile strength provide the ultimate in structural integrity.
  • Unsurpassed Corrosion Protection – Our product demonstrates a longer service life because of the synergism created among the three coatings.
    • First 99.99% pure zinc is applied followed by a conversion coating. Finishing the process is a clear organic topcoat that seals in the protection and produces a smooth, shiny appearance.
    • The inside diameter of our tube is a zinc-rich corrosion-resistant coating applied after the tube is welded, completely covering the interior.
    • Gatorshield® is more resistant to rust than any competitive tube product. The Flo-Coat® process makes the difference!
  • Ease of Fabrication – No chipping or flaking when bending and flattening. We can customize our tube to fit your greenhouse needs
  • Versatility – Available in a wide range of sizes in rounds, square and rectangular shapes.
