Our premises includes a 9m x 5m Shot Blast booth and a 9m x 27m Paint Shop and our operations are quality controlled by our on site NACE level II Coating Inspector. To increase our through capacity we are in the process of building a new Portal Frame facility for both operations with a blast booth and paint shop measuring 27m x 11m with an expected 5.5m ht to roller door.
We operate across a variety of industries, Marine, Petro-chemical, Heavy Industrial, Offshore, Local Authorities etc. We also offer the ability to mobilise our equipment and services to sites and shipyards across the country with our fully licenced Class one flatbed truck.
We have made a substantial investment in buying our own UHP machines which are kept fully maintained by our skilled workforce who understand the equipment and the correct and safe methods of operating such equipment, this leads to a much improved cost effectiveness over the traditional methods of hiring in machines with operators that may not be as familiar with the best and safest operating procedures.
The staff at QA Coatings are all very experienced and have been in the blasting and corrosion protection industry for many years and are motivated to work to the highest standard in the safest way possible, this produces a highly efficient, cost effective safe working environment. All staff are trained and have the appropriate certification for the safe use of all equipment and the health and safety aspects for working on site, additionally all staff have been trained and certified for the safe operation of plant including access equipment.
