All steel bars, frames and other components have one of the following finishes:
- Hot dip galvanised
- Stainless steel
Tubular Steel overall outside diameter varies depending on the proposed use. In most circumstances the diameter is 48mm.
Square Steel: In some circumstances where specified square steel can be used in a facility, exact specifications of which would be confirmed in the circumstance it is used.
Sheet Steel: In some circumstances where specified sheet steel can be used in a facility, exact specifications of which would be confirmed in the circumstance it is used.
All steel parts are connected firmly to suit the manufacture and installation process. Methods of fixing include: Bolting, pre-welding, welding on site, built into elements or cast into concrete foundations.
Where our steel components are connected to concrete elements we use an 80mm x 120mm 5mm thick galvanised steel plate with two chemical fixings. All steel components that are installed into the ground are installed to a minimum depth of 700mm and have at least 500mm of concrete.
Freemove have sourced UK manufacturing facilities for the majority of our steel products to reduce our carbon footprint and we endeavour to ensure that our suppliers use sustainable sources for the raw materials they use in their manufacturing processes and use the most efficient process when manufacturing.
The environmental policies for Freemove and our suppliers are available on request.
