Case Study - Closed Circuit Blast Cleaning

We were contacted by flo-gas (uk) ltd as part of their long running maintenance program to blast clean and re-paint their propane storage tanks at the Leeds and Glasgow depots. This contract had to be completed without any disruption to the running of each depot or distribution of this particularly hazardous and volatile gas. Drawing on many year’s experience in the petro-chemical and associated industries the contract was successfully completed and our relationship with flo-gas continues to grow.

Case Study - Grit Blast and Painting Works

Wishbone Bridge - Wolverhampton

It has taken more than 350 litres of paint and about 250 hours of work, but the repainting of the wishbone tram bridge in the centre of Wolverhampton was today almost complete.

Final touches were being made to the four central columns of the bridge but workers say it will be completed right on schedule on Sunday.

A 10-strong team was today taking down scaffolding that let workers scale the 11m-high bridge to repaint 700m of steel. The revamp has transformed the flaking look of the bridge, which was criticised by councillors as an embarrassing eyesore, but did not include a colour change. It is still grey.

Painters worked in teams of four, nine hours a day, seven days a week and officials are delighted with the end result.

A spokesman for Ultra-Blast.co.ukwhich won the contract, said today:

"It was a big job in the middle of a major traffic island but it has gone very successfully."

The steel was grit blasted, primed, washed, given an undercoat and finally finished with a top coat. The bridge was blasted and painted by Lanesfield-based company Ultra-Blast.co.uk

Painter Martin Howell, said:

"It was a big job but I’m very proud of how it turned out. I’ve been involved since the scaffolding went up. It wasn’t without its problems but it looks really good now."

Case Study - Car Park Cleaning

After a vehicle fire in one of the city's prominent car parks Ultrablast were awarded the contract from Birmingham City Council. The duration of the cleaning and painting works was three weeks and the car park was to remain open during this time.

The residue from the fire was removed using our specialist industrial cleaning services, the areas of concrete to the underside of the deck that had blown with the heat were repaired by us and finished with an airless spray application of an anti carbonation elastomeric coating. The car park was handed back to the Council on time and with no disruption to the public.
