MEA Metal Applications is, since 1996, operating its own galvanizing plant. Hot-dip galvanizing in a full bath (in accordance with DIN EN ISO 1461) makes our products extremely weatherproof, environmentally friendly and durable. After appropriate pre-treatment (degreasing and pickling), steel is alloyed on the surface by immersion in a liquid zinc melt and coated with zinc.The zinc coating forms a bond with the steel and is therefore suitable for all interior and exterior surfaces. In order to achieve the best possible result, we also check all components before and after hot-dip galvanizing. And even after galvanizing, you have the option of having our locksmith make any further changes you require.


  • Hot-dip galvanizing of steel components as well as small parts including connecting material. All products are galvanized in accordance with DIN EN 1461 and DAST guideline 022.
  • Blasting of materials (removal of old paint or deep corrosion)
  • Pickling and degreasing of materials with hydrochloric acid
  • Transport service: direct collection of the products from the customer and return after galvanizing
