Floor Shot Blasting
Floor shot blasting plays a vital role in ensuring that sites are properly prepared for project work and maintained to the highest of standards. However, with such a wide range of potential solutions available, it can be difficult to find the right materials and supplies to ensure that your tasks are completed successfully.
So, what exactly does floor shot blasting involve and what are the potential benefits of making it part of your work?
What is floor shot blasting?
As the name suggests, floor shot blasting involves the application of abrasive shot or grit to a material surface. This is most commonly applied to concrete, but can be administered to a range of surfaces, from metals, organic materials, and a wide range of stonework options.
In practical terms, this involves the use of a floor blaster – a machine that allows your abrasive material to be fired at high speed at the surface, collected and then recycled. This can range from hand-held devices, to larger vehicle mounted equipment, to anything in between.
The size or specification of shot or grit can also be adjusted to allow for an aesthetic finish, heavy cleaning, or stripping the surface of imperfections to ensure a smooth finish.
Who would need floor shot blasting?
Floor blasting is used in a wide range of sectors but plays an important role in the world of warehousing and construction. Shot blasting a floor allows it to remain level and clean, something that is highly important when it comes to large concrete floors or heavy duty maintenance.
It also allows teams to pre-finish any flooring on sites, weather stonework, or smooth out the bumps and lumps that can accompany complex projects. This allows you to strip away dirt and damage that would otherwise be difficult to remove in a way that remains cost effective, efficient, and safe.
