The Purpose and Function of Shot Blasting and Painting
Shot blasting and painting is not just a cosmetic procedure to make a scaffolding system simply “look good”.
Shot blasting and painting not only provides a clear way to identify your equipment, it also serves a far more important role. Providing protection of your scaffolding, which is vital in order to stand the test of time against a variety of weather conditions alongside demanding environmental and working conditions.
Finishing a scaffolding system, fitting or component with a protective paint finish, defends against corrosion and more severe environmental factors some industries and sectors are faced with. Such as marine, oil and gas and offshore industries alongside, industries in colder and more extreme climates.
We work in partnership with some of the UK’s leading paint manufacturers to provide and extensive range of protective paint finishes to protect and preserve against many extreme environmental factors, both weather and work related.
All scaffolding, scaffolding fittings, components, products and accessories suitable for shot blasting and painting services are prepared and cleaned via our shot blasting and tumble blasting machines to ensure sufficient debris is removed enabling thorough inspection and the visibility of any damage, defect or corrosion.
The blast cleaning process is carried out using our four wheel shot blast machine, smaller components are processed through our tumble blast machine.
Once the blast cleaning process is complete then the inspection of all scaffolding, fittings and components is then conducted. Any defective or unfit for purpose components are separated and the processed through our scaffold repairs facility.
Necessary repairs to any defective scaffolding components can then be scheduled and conducted in order to return the scaffolding and equipment back to a fit for purpose, working condition. Further details on this process can be found within the Scaffold Repair & Reconditioning section.
Anti-Corrosive Coating Application
The application of an anti-corrosive coating is applied followed by the additional application of a protective paint, meeting both cosmetic and functional requirements. Scaffolding components are then, either fully dipped using our conventional mono-rail track system or alternatively, spray painted. Our purpose built systems can easily accommodate the majority of system scaffolding as well as larger industrial access and bespoke access solutions.
We work in partnership with many of the leading paint manufacturers to meet the diverse needs and requirements of each individual client. We provide a wide range of corporate customisation options, with all protective paint finishes. Our purpose-built drying chambers and paint booths can easily accommodate any size of system scaffolding and components.
Finishing, Inspection and Quality Control
Hand finishing, final inspection and quality control is then carried out. All moving parts are freed, checked and lubricated. Our in-house scaffold inspectors are fully certified and have the ability to conduct fault diagnosis, specification review and 3rd party inspections.
