Floor preparation is an efficient and environmentally acceptable dust free method of preparing concrete surfaces. Grit Blasting UK uses it expertise and the latest in diamond floor grinding technology to provide a clean, professional finish ready for the application of surface treatments such as paint. Some still refer to this as shot blasting, but in reality it is diamond grinding!
Grit Blasting UK is undertaking more and more floor preparation projects for contractors. The demand for “out of town” warehouses, shopping centres, factories and other storage space is giving rise to the need for preparation of much bigger floor spaces, and required in a shorter time frame because of the tight deadlines on the overall building and construction jobs where cost control is critical.
Investing in the latest technology is key to reducing the timescales on bigger jobs such as floor preparation. We maintain a fleet of diamond floor grinders applicable for any size of project, and the latest staff training ensures an efficient and highly skilled team familiar with the latest techniques.
An understanding of the science behind the materials, the paint applications as well and the safety needs of the work and the after-care of the materials is also a key requisite of our work.
We undertake any size project, and some of our latest work includes hospital basements, large factory floors and warehouses.
One of the UK’s leading Grit blasting companies has invested in the latest technology from the United States.
Grit blasting UK, owned by Kierien Barnes from Trowbridge in Wiltshire continues to grow its surface preparation and paint spraying business. Earlier this year the company moved to larger premises in Devizes with outdoor blasting facilities. Now, they have purchased the latest in mobile diamond grinding technology for use in indoor blasting.
Purchased from SPE International in Washington DC USA, the Predator 2400 is the “new boy” in Grit blasting UK’s armoury of diamond floor grinders and polishers. Designed to tackle any size of job imaginable, this tool makes light work of the projects that Kierien’s company are now handling. The Predator 2400 excels at removing stubborn coatings including sealers and adhesives as well as polishing concrete.
Kierien explains “We are seeing more and more floor preparation projects in our contracted work, and with “out of town” warehouses and factory space becoming more popular, Gritblasting UK is taking on contacts for clients with much larger floor areas in need of preparation for example.”
It is not just the technology that is important. Grit blasting have been experts in their field for over 20 years, starting initially in Wiltshire and now undertaking major work across the United Kingdom. Investing in technology is just one of the many requirements of the modern-day grit blaster, along with a deep understanding of the science behind the materials and the paint applications as well and the safety needs of the work and the after-care of the materials.
Larger construction and engineering companies now rely on Grit blasting UK as a preferred sub-contractor because of their reliability and experience. From massive steel bridges to wind turbines to 5000 square feet warehouses, Grit blasting UK boasts an impressive client list.
