What is WeatherShield?

WeatherShield is a rust proofing treatment that each steel component receives before it is painted. WeatherShield is a zinc galvanizing process that protects steel from rust. This process involves dipping each steel component is a molten bath of zinc, which causes a thin layer of zinc to impregnate the steel creating a rust proof barrier preventing moisture from reaching the raw steel below. The picture shows several bundles of zinc galvanized basketball posts prior to painting. The silver zinc coating shown is what lies beneath the black powder coat finish that eventually covers the steel.

WeatherShield Durability

WeatherShield is excellent for any environment, but especially in moist, humid environments. If you live in a part of the country that receives exceptional rainfall or humidity throughout the year, you will be extra glad you have this feature. Don't be tricked into paying extra. Unlike competitors that try to charge an extra $120-$150 for this type of protection, Ironclad includes WeatherShield absolutely FREE!

Included on models: Triple Threat, Fullcourt, and Highlight Hoops
