This guarantee is given for coated products exposed under “normal” environmental conditions considered as non-hazardous; these are locations where the local conditions do not adversely affect the properties of the Powder-coated film, e.g. rural or typical urban environments. Arden Gates Ltd will not guarantee Powder Coated products within 7000 meters of the following “hazardous” environments. 


Hazardous Environments

  • Marine: Coastal shoreline, estuaries and tidal rivers areas which are strongly affected by salt laded atmospheres.
  • Industrial: Any location of a source of solid, liquid or gaseous pollution that may cause the degrading of the Powder Coating
  • Swimming and Leisure Pools: As a result of high humidity and chemical build-up.

In certain circumstances on ungalvanized steel treated with our shot-blasted Zinc powder and polyester topcoat finish there may be a pinhole that can leak a small amount rusty water. We reserve the right to treat this on site to prevent any spread. If it becomes a problem with spread, within the 5-year period we will recoat.

Galvanised gates are deburred before coating to remove any sharp protrusions, however the galvanised finish adds a texture to the steel that can be seen in some cases under the powder coating.
