No galvanised nailplates should be permanently exposed to weather or other sources of moisture.

For environments where the atmosphere may be conducive to corrosion (e.g. some types of industrial and agricultural buildings, swimming pools or buildings near the ocean and subject to salt spray) consideration should be given to the use of stainless steel nailplates and fixings.
