All steel is pre-galvanized and powder coated. This provides superior rust resistance to insure years of beauty and functionality. The powder coat is a super durable, UV stabilized TGIC polyester that is non-toxic to both horses and humans. All powder coating is done in-house to ensure quality control. Select from our 13 standard colors or request a custom color to match your exact barn colors!* We also offer a zinc primer as an additional rust inhabitant – salt spray tests show this process as effective as preventing rust as hot-dip galvanization.
Black (uncoated or non-galvanized) steel will quickly rust at any unprotected point. Because there is no protection on black steel, the rust will creep below the paint and it will quickly flake off. When researching your horse stall choices, be sure to ask what type of steel and paint is used.
