A1. What is the service life of the foundation screws in the ground?
The service life is measured in terms of years before any maintenance of the galvanization is required.
Obviously, this depends on the environment in which the screw is installed.
- In less aggressive environments, the service life is between 35 and 50 years.
- In marine environments, the service life is between 9 and 11 years.
