Hoover Fence is proud to carry SS40 chain link posts, top rail, and framework as manufactured by Allied Tube & Conduit.  Allied Tube & Conduit has become the largest domestic manufacturer of galvanized steel fence framework. Allied's SS40 consistently outperforms Schedule 40 and pre-galvanized pipe products in areas of strength and corrosion resistance. SS40 is hot-dip galvanized and chromated by total immersion, followed by a clear organic coating. This coating minimizes oxidation, preserving a bright shiny appearance. The combined coatings of zinc, a conversion coating and clear organic top coat produce a "synergistic" effect that has greater corrosion resistance than the sum of the individual coatings. It all adds up to superior protection.
