We are asked occasionally what we do as a company. Its really hard to categorize, as Grit Blasting is just one of many surface preparation services we do for clients. As we have expanded, we have developed new skills and new technologies.
But in short, we blast clean anything from small home renovation items through to wind turbines, warehouses and steel bridges – and anything in between!
Here for example is a building frame that we recently grit blasted, then using an airless sprayer, we covered it in primer, supplied by Promain Paints Ltd. So in this case we have used our blast cleaning skills, along with out paint spray capabilities to offer our client a one-stop shop service in surface preparation.
In the photo above you can see the new shiny paint on a dumper. In this case, we have a number of contracts with local equipment manufacturers and suppliers. We help them blast clean their equipment, ready for re-spraying. Examples include aboricultural and agricultural equipment.
We have two blasting yards – one in Andover and one in Devizes. We also travel anywhere in the UK to undertake surface preparation work. One of our popular mobile services is floor preparation, where we have specialist concrete grinding expertise and equipment to remove stubborn contaminants, and the skills to apply new coatings to the freshly prepared surface.
So if you our your business needs specialist contractor services for surface preparation, please do visit our website where you will find case studies and details on our service. We are the UK’s leading surface preparation company, offering high value blast cleaning, paint spraying and powder coating facilities.
We operate a national UK service. Our mobile blasting units travel to all parts of the country.
Locally, we have two blasting facilities where we do our preparation work for grit blasting, paint spraying and powder coating. (This is sometimes known as shotblasting, sandblasting and is generally blast cleaning).
Our blasting facilities are in Andover and Devizes. In Andover we are based at Lopcombe in Jack’s Bush Farm. In Devizes, we are situated in the quaint village of Market Lavington. Our blasting facilities service our local clients which include large engineering firms, arboriculture equipment suppliers, fleet suppliers, agricultural equipment manufacturers and many more.

Here’s a great example of the type of work we do for home and building renovation. Our client is doing a barn conversation and asked us to grit blast or blast clean an external wall.
In this case, the cleaning process revealed fantastic brick work. The equipment we use makes light work of this, stripping off the layer(s) of ageing paint, taking the brick work back to almost original condition.
The before and after pictures show the result perfectly. You can now see the different brick and materials used. Another happy client, and a wall with a great life-time ahead of it.
With our expansion under way, we are now recruiting new staff at our Andover premises.
Our new Powder Coating facility is up and running, and with our expanding surface preparation work for our nationwide clients growing monthly, this means we need new experienced blast cleaning staff to help with the growing workload.
Our new Indeed recruitment page gives all the details on the roles available, and you can visit our website to see the range of work we do.
We are looking for experienced Blast Cleaners, Grit Blasters or Surface Preparation expertise.
This month has seen Grit Blasting break new ground with the completion of a surface preparation project on a local wind turbine. With good calm weather, the project was completed within a few days. Removing the industrial paint from the base of the turbine went well, then necessary engineering work by contractors was needed on the base before Grit Blasting completed the spraying. The photos below show the fabulous results which both Grit Blasting UK and the client were very pleased with.
Grit Blasting owner Kierien Barnes reported “These types of projects are ideal for our company, where we can use our skills to great advantage for the client. As with many outdoor jobs, the weather window plays an important part in the process, but with low winds and fine weather we were able to execute the job on time and on budget.”
