Gatorshield®Metal Structures Made With Steel That Outperforms and OutlastsFCP is the exclusive barn supplier to offer Allied Gatorshield steel products. Steel barn products should last a lifetime. But if thin-gauge steel that has only been lightly galvanized on the exterior is used, the product will rust, bend, and generally not withstand the rigors of your horse.
FCP exclusively uses Allied’s Gatorshield tube. Gatorshield is Allied’s patented triple layer Flo-Coat® rust and corrosion resistant product protection that has demonstrated to be the best over the long haul versus all other offerings. When rust and corrosion protection is needed – Gatorshield is “Gator Tough.” In addition, Allied’s zinc interior coating provides the inside of the tube with maximum corrosion and rust protection. Inside and out – Gatorshield provides a thicker layer of zinc for added protection and extended longevity in the highly corrosive environment typical of barns.
Gatorshield is processed utilizing 99.99% pure zinc alloy with significantly less harmful lead content than generally encountered with pre-galvanized or hot-dipped products. Gatorshield’s meets a minimum strength characteristic of 50,000 yield/55,000 tensile, reaching a maximum of 60,000 yield/75,000 tensile.
