When selecting a company for protective coatings, look for one with a strong reputation, a commitment to safety and the resources to complete the job on time.
Waterjetting is a type of surface preparation using water pressures in excess of 10,000 PSIG. This type of surface preparation is advantageous when abrasive blasting is not appropriate.
Wet abrasive blasting is the use of abrasive blasting equipment and materials aided by water injection. This is commonly used when dust control is the priority.
Pipe lining is an internal application of a material and pipe coating is an external application. Other types of coatings are generally external applications.
A specified coating system ensures the appropriate type coating is used on any project. Specified systems go through a long vetting process, which involves a team of professionals from the owner, manufacturer and consulting engineer to determine the best coating system available.
Alkyd, zinc, epoxy and polyurethane coatings are common. The type of coating varies depending on the material coated and the system specified in order to achieve corrosion control from abrasion, dissimilar metal, chemical attack, microbiologically induced corrosion (MIC) or a combination of any other extreme environmental factors.
PERI UP SCAFFOLDING
Federal OSHA regulations govern scaffolds in general industry, listed in 29 CFR part 1926, subpart L (Scaffolds). View the blog on OSHA scaffolding standards.
The main parts are standards, ledgers and transoms. Standards are tubes that support the weight of the scaffold. Ledgers are tubes that join the standards together. Transoms lean on ledgers at right angles.
According to OSHA regulations, a competent person must inspect scaffolds and their components before each work shift.
Professionals mount decking directly on the ledgers and can adjust bay lengths in 25 centimeter increments. The Gravity Lock allows for quick assembly because when they insert the wedge head in the rosette, the wedge falls by the force of gravity and locks into place. This makes the assembly flexible and safe.
Modular scaffolding is made of prefabricated individual components that can be combined in flexible configurations. It’s convenient to use when a building’s facade is an unusual or complex shape such as a hexagon.
PERI UP scaffolding has a high load bearing capacity, up to Load Class 6 depending on the assembly.
PERI UP has a nonslip, perforated surface, and working platforms have zero gaps. Its slip-resistant, galvanized steel panels lock automatically with Gravity Lock.
PERI UP is a galvanized steel scaffolding system.
PERI UP scaffolding operates on a grid of 25 and 50 centimeters. Its range of decks and ledgers have different lengths to enable decking to fit around any shape or obstacle.
