Metalwork

Grit blasting steelwork is a big part of what we do. This could be cleaning the rust from a steel framed building or removing multiple layers of paint from Victorian railings. Amongst other projects, we have worked on railway bridges for London transport and seafront railings for local authorities.

Preparation is an important part of an ‘on-site’ grit or sandblasting job. Meeting Health and Safety standards often needs careful consideration; this could involve building a structure around the blast area to contain the potential dust hazard or using dust extraction equipment. When very old paint is to be blasted we will carry out tests to check for lead content.

Here are some examples of metalwork projects we have sandblasted…

Our customer had spent hours with paint-stripper. A few minutes’ sandblasting is so much quicker & easier!

Metalwork can quickly become rusty when battered by damp, salt-laden wind. This is very much the case for Brighton Pier, where we have sandblasted entrance gates and funfair rides, amongst other things…

Below are pictures of the railings around the Eastbourne Carpet Gardens, whilst being sandblasted and painted. Because of the close proximity to the road and passing pedestrians, we had to build a framework and sheet in the job during the blast cleaning process…
