A company that specializes in custom US military applications and products needed 100 Known Distance Targets frames galvanizing. Known Distance Targets are used by the military for marksmanship training all over the world. These targets must be rugged and durable. The choice to galvanize the targets came easy to enhance the performance and durability.
Camp Atterbury is one of many military facilities in the world to use Known Distance Targets. Camp Atterbury is just outside of Edinburgh, Indiana. These target frames had previously been powder coated. For better corrosion protection, they needed to be replaced with galvanized target frames. Known Distance Targets are located around the world and frequently in marine environments. The coating durability was a concern as well as upkeep in many different environments.
Galvanizing the target frames with AZZ was innovative to the usage and effectiveness to maintain the same product that can hold up in many different environments. AZZ hot-dip galvanized coating provided a longer service life and reduced maintenance. The company worked with AZZ Galvanizing – Muncie to develop the best design using hot-dip galvanizing.
