Safety Upgrade for Factory customer

June 16, 2014

A Pumpcoat customer had an issue with cracked concrete flooring and out-of-date safety line striping. As a factory that manufactured roofing materials, their eye was on keeping their factory up-to-code and safe for their employees. They called Pumpcoat to help them achieve that goal.

Pumpcoat/PCI Contractors came in and did a site assessment. A section-by-section plan was created to remove the old lines, repair the spalling and cracked areas around their concrete floor, and lay down new epoxy Safety lineage, hazard notations and a top coat sealer.

Over the course of two months, Pumpcoat/PCI made several mobilizations and worked around the factory’s production  schedule as to provide minimum disruption.

Pumpcoat/PCI prepped the floor using Blast-trac shot blasters. It was ground in different areas, profiled and cleaned, removing the old striping in the process.   The concrete cracks and spalling were repaired .  New Safety lines were taped down and applied using Duraflex Epoxy Safety colors – Red, Green & Yellow.  The different areas were demarcated with area specific Safety notices – in example: “Fork lift traffic only”

The lines were then top-coated with a clear epoxy sealer for increased durability. Areas of the Office, Operator line, Maintenance Warehouse, Fabrication shop & Loading dock were re-striped in this manner.

The customer was very satisfied with the end result. The new safety striping brought the factory within compliance of the Health & Safety code, as well as being able to keep the factory operational while the work was being done.

If you have problems with compliance due to obsolete signage, safety striping, handicapped accessibility or other issues, please call PCI Contracting for a consultation today. We can help!
