Ancillary Items

Just as hot-dip galvanizing protects steel – ancillary items are placed to protect motorists, inspectors and the bridges themselves.

Beyond the structural and decking components, there are a number of ancillary items on bridges that commonly use hot-dip galvanized steel. These ancillary items support proper drainage, safety, and allow for easier maintenance and inspection. 

These items are often ignored or taken for granted, but they play a pivotal role in the overall performance and safety of a bridge. Whether signage and lighting, grating and drainage, or railings and barriers, these items can all benefit from hot-dip galvanizing's maintenance-free longevity.
