Advantages for using Allied’s Flo-coat® In-line Galvanized Tube for Playgrounds

Keep your playground safe with the added protection of Allied’s in-line galvanized steel tubing.  Flo-coat® steel tubing was designed specifically with the playground industry in mind.  It will not flake or chip upon forming and is CPSIA compliant.  By utilizing Flo-coat® as the substrate material, your powder coated playground structures will have greater resistance to corrosion if exposure does occur.  With over 20 years of experience in the commercial playground market, our tubing has demonstrated best in class performance.

Superior Strength

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

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.
