4″ Galvanized Cradle Beam

The 4″ Galvanized Cradle Beam are structural beams measuring 4 in. in height with custom welded end plates on both sides. Made from steel. Punched and notched holes in the steel endplates. Welded and then hot-dipped galvanized for a longer-lasting finish. End plates measure 2 1/2 in. W x 8 in. T x 3/8 in. thick. Safely holds 1,500 lbs. distributed load. Beams ship loose.

Galvanized Steel

Galvanized steel is created by dipping standard steel into molten zinc by a process called hot dipping. The layer of zinc serves as a protectant from corrosion. The protectant makes galvanized steel the best option for seawater environments. Galvanized steel typically has a rough surface and can vary in color. There is no uniform finish for this type of steel.

Galvanized steel is ideal for marine environments because of its protective layer over carbon steel. Stainless steel will react with salt water resulting in rust. The zinc layer on galvanized steel prevents this reaction.  A downfall for this defensive measure is that the protective layer can be corroded or fade over time. This is due to the zinc sacrificing itself to protect the base metal.
