Gatorshield® steel tubing is rust-resistant and corrosion-resistant structural tubing for residential and commercial construction. Gatorshield® has significant advantages over aluminum, including:
Gatorshield® makes construction projects less expensive than aluminum for several reasons:
When it comes to cost effectiveness, one thing is for sure: Gatorshield®’s advantages add up.
Thanks to its greater structural integrity, Gatorshield® requires fewer linear feet of material per structure. That translates into longer life and lower costs for your project.
Gatorshield® ductile steel tubing boasts an approximately 30% greater load carrying capacity than aluminum. Its superior hardness makes framing and support structures much more resistant to everyday dings and dents, too.
Finally, Gatorshield® withstands the bending and forming required for custom designs and equipment. Aluminum, meanwhile, age-hardens while in storage and can break during any fabrication process, causing costly scrap losses.
