The backbone of a company is comprised of its manufacturing plant and warehouse. Even with the most creative marketing team and a personable sales staff, the real key to a successful operation lies in the ability to create and distribute a product. For this reason, it is imperative that companies take the best possible care of their behind-the-scenes facilities. An effective way to make sure a facility is kept up-to-date is by hiring a painting contractor to maintain the ceilings, floors, walls and even equipment.
Keeping up with interior ceiling painting is an important aspect of warehouse maintenance. For starters, a fresh coat of paint can rejuvenate the atmosphere in a facility. Warehouse painters in New Jersey know exactly how to brighten up a warehouse ceiling by spray painting, keeping workers energized, even through a cold winter season. While a fresh coat of the current concrete wall paint will provide a boost in spirits, a new color can help reinvent a company’s image completely or help cover up years of stains or abuse. With constant moving of heavy products and the frequent use of lifting machinery, a dark warehouse means a dangerous work environment. By cleverly using the right colors, finishes, techniques and products, contractors know how to get better light reflectance in a dark warehouse without upgrading the existing lighting. Whether the ceiling is corrugated decking, structural steel beams, open web joists, exposed pipe/conduit or even a drop ceiling, your painting contractor will know just the type of coating to use.
If your ceiling is showing signs of rust them specific measures must be taken to ensure you don’t get bleed through on the newly painted surface. With multiple substrates in a manufacturing or warehouse ceiling you need to pick a paint the can cover different surfaces and still adhere properly and preform for years to come. Sherwin Williams make a Multi-Surface product, Opti-Bond, that is specially designed to be applied to a variety of surfaces in a single coat to provide uniform color and improved light reflectance on ceiling decks. This coating is a VOC-complying, one-coat, rust-inhibitive, interior/exterior, alkyd finish for ceilings and overhead expanses in manufacturing and warehouse facilities.
Most well maintained ceilings are sprayed with a special dryfall paint that dries before it hits the ground, contractors do not need to worry about ceiling paint dripping down on equipment or or surrounding area below. However, it should also be noted that certain areas need extra care. Open web joists, for example, need special treatment before being painted. Rusted surfaces should be grinded or wire brushed and all dust or grime should be solvent wiped to a sound surface prior to painting. Covering sprinkler heads with foil is also important, so that they are not damaged by paint and can still function if needed.
There is much more to warehouse maintenance painting than just recoating the ceiling. Commercial or industrial painting companies can also be protecting a warehouse floor with a protective coating. Epoxy floor painting will preserve the flooring from the harshness of constant, heavy duty use from workers, fork lifts, moving pallets and industrial equipment. Epoxy floors shouldn’t be completed by just any contractor. Floor peel more then any other area. So special attention must be givent to ensure these surfaces are prepared properly and the right epoxy floor paint is applied. Shot blasting or diamond grinding is recommended prior to painting to provide a proper profile for the new coating to adhere and to remove any loose or peeling floor paint.
