RUST

Steel gates, including those with zinc galvanizing under the powder coat may rust over time. Some rust weeping from joints is a normal occurrence as the powder coat cannot reach all the hidden joints. After it rains, rust may "weep" down from crevices between connecting bands or collars. We cannot guarantee against rust.

For rust prevention, seal the top of each joint with a black silicon sealant.
