"How do your grills compare with aluminum grills?"


~ When compared with aluminum pipe, Thundercoat pipe exhibits an average 60% greater load-carrying capacity in tension. In the weld areas, the strength differences are even greater, as aluminum loses 50% of its strength in the weld areas.

~ Thundercoat steel tubing is more easily and effectively painted or powder-coated than aluminum, which must go through extensive cleaning and other pre-coating processes. Because Thundercoat's third coat has the same paint chemistry and surface consistency as expensive primers, finish adhesion is excellent, far superior to aluminum.

~ Using steel reduces theft and vandalism...the scrap value of aluminum is more than 10 times that of steel.

~ The Thundercoat finish exhibit's a bright, smooth finish that retains its attractive appearance for an extended period. Aluminum turns a dark, dull gray as it ages.

Considering the fact that the doors and grills are completely assembled, the installation is very basic and quite simple. Two people can, typically, install 3 - 4 horse stalls per day. It is recommended that you view the installation video - available on this site under "More Information - Installation" prior to starting. This will give you a good overview of the project, step-by-step. If you have any installation questions, you can call our technical staff at (800) 648-3415.
