At Wheatbelt Steel, we are here to help you protect your assets. When you invest in expensive assets such as machinery, you won’t want to leave it out in the harsh Australian climate.  This can be very hard on your machinery and your other farming essentials such as hay and grain, so they won’t last as long. We highly recommend getting a steel farm shed to store such valuables.

There can be quite a price difference when it comes to buying a farm shed. There are many different types of sheds on the market, some that are cheaper (and won’t last) while others can be more expensive but will last you a lifetime.

For this reason, we do our best to give you the best farm shed that we can at the best price. One way we do this is by using Hot Dip Galvanized Steel.

Here is why we love Hot Dip Galvanized Steel (and you should too)!

There is less maintenance, which means that over the long-term, it will cost less. Hot Dip Galvanized Steel lasts a long time, with virtually no maintenance. This makes it one of the cheapest products in the long run.

Even if you buy a product that seems cheaper, if you have to do regular maintenance (which often costs money), it may end up costing more.

Hot Dip Galvanized Steel is very reliable. It has to meet the Australian Standard (4680). So, what does this really mean? It simply means that it meets the standard for minimum coating thickness. Unfortunately, many people buy imported sheds, which do not always follow our standard.

Hot Dip Galvanized Steel offers complete protection. Coatings like paint will leak, especially around the sharp corners and inaccessible areas. This is not the case with Hot Dip Galvanized Steel. It is the best protective coating available, getting even the hardest to reach spots!

It is easy to inspect. As your shed gets older, it is important to keep a good eye on it to keep it in top condition. We like to use Hot Dip Galvanized Steel because you can easily inspect it with a simple glance. You may also perform very simple tests in order to make sure that it is still up to the job.

Our farm sheds go up quickly and easily. The steel pieces are ready to be placed and used. You won’t have to worry about preparing for paint and then painting because it is all ready to be used!

Hot Dip Galvanized Steel also protects against corrosion. Some steel farm sheds are painted, which will not protect the building from corrosion. If you want your shed to last forever, you should look into Hot Dip Galvanized Steel so that it will last without any signs of rust!

It is always our goal to give our customers the very best farm shed that we can for the best price. In order to do this, we always recommend Hot Dip Galvanized Steel. Not only will your building be up and ready for use quickly, the protective coating will prevent it from corrosion.

It is very cost-effective. Even though you might find a cheaper material, it will probably cost more in the long-run when you think about all of the maintenance you will have to do. Hot Dip Galvanized Steel is also great because it protects everywhere. It will get into the deepest corners and inaccessible areas.
