Top 3 Reasons to use Allied’s Flo-Coat® In-line Galvanized Tube for Playgrounds

Superior Strength – Our in-line galvanized tube exhibits greater strength characteristics because of our cold process.

  • Minimum yield strength of 50 ksi and 55 ksi tensile strength on all of our tubes wall thickness 15 gauge and heavier.
  • Playground customers can now reduce gauges and still retain the same strength, reducing cost and weight of the product.

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.

Cost Savings and Reduced Lead Times – Allied’s in-line galvanized products eliminate extra processes and freight.

  • You no longer have to prepare and ship back and forth to hot-dip galvanizers and wait for finished products.
  • Reduce painting preparation, Flo-coat in-line tubing has a topcoat ready for painting or powder coating.
  • You can also decide to eliminate painting with our heavier coated galvanized product Gatorshield®,formulated with extra zinc for a prolonged service life in harsh environments.

Allied‘s Flo-Coat® is an industry standard for supplying the highest quality playground systems. The result has been long lasting play components and a safe play environment for future generations.
