Products that have been hot-dipped galvanised post fabrication offer the most durable galvanised finish. Avoid pre-galvanised tube unless using strictly in undercover/underground areas. Stainless steel - Attractive and expensive. Well suited for plazas and for buildings with stainless accessories. Ask for high quality Grade 316 or 304 Stainless Steel. The addition of an electropolish finish increases the shine and adds additional protection. Conclusions * Dont waste your money. Be aware of capacity claims and avoid racks which are misused. * Do not buy products which hold (pinch) wheels.
