Adam hall just confirmed theirs cannot be taken anywhere near a seaside town either, Not immediately but upon questioning they believe theirs too will deteriorate quickly if there is salt in the air. (zinc coated)

So really to say your cabs will be fine anywhere you need galvanised by the sounds of it.

You going to get that with any caster eventually, all built to a price these days. Container storage near the sea not going to help. As others, i would strip down and get local coater used to doing stuff for boats to plate or galvanise them, couple hundred um coverage.

You could also look at stainless ones, but price will be high, you want 304 as a min, prefferably 316...

Dupe...

yeah eventually was a month in my case. Id have expected a little longer. A spray at the end of manufacture with a light oil would have prolonged it I'm sure. Just had a look at stainless, I'm seeing around £16 ea for 100mm. Quite a bit more. Did see an indian company doing galvanised tho.. will investigate.

Shipping containers are pretty bad for this kind of thing. I used to store all my gear in one and all the hardware on my flight cases now look like that. You can get very high humidity levels with no airflow in a container. I suspect Adam Hall or Penn hardware might have slightly better coatings but ultimately will end up looking the same.

Not salt in the air? Its worse than I thought then. I don't believe it excuses the coating tho. I will have to make some calls to plating companies to see if they can be done better.

This sort of stuff frustrates the hell out of me. You say built to a price but the difference per unit to get them properly galvanised would be next to nothing.

I agree Jon. I'd prefer them in bare steel. This being the case to get coated myself. My guess is I'm going to call a couple of British plating companies and their response will be "what" and then go on to tell me their zinc coatings are guaranteed etc etc. I've got some cheap trago mills castors that have been left out in the rain for months. Still shining. Will subject them to a month in the container. See how they fair.

No doubt going to cost more to get them coated as they will need to remove the coating that's on there.

I ruined a pair of 1210's in a shipping container. In sealed flight cases that also went yuk.
I am 1 mile from the sea.
It's everything, not everythink!
