There are some flushes available in the market, and the ideal process depends on your specific machinery and its unique needs. [Read More]

  • Using Stainless Steel for Your Industrial Garage Doors

    Garage doors for industrial applications are different from the ones homeowners use on their personal properties. Indeed, these doors are typically larger, of higher quality and of higher performance. Industrial garage doors cover warehouse entrances, building entry points and factory entry points. They undergo heavier usage than most other garage doors and need to be resistant to wear and tear, corrosion and physical damage. Stainless steel is one of the most effective materials used to design industrial garage doors. [Read More]

  • What Is Chain Link Fencing?

    A chain link fence is easy to identify because it has a diamond-shaped structure that is made up of zig-zagging wires. These wires are interconnected to one another by a process that is referred to as weaving. This creates a mesh that can be installed rapidly by simply rolling it out on site and attaching it to a framework. As such, wire fencing tends to be a popular choice in industrial situations where a cheap solution is needed to prevent unwarranted access or to mark off one area from another. [Read More]

  • Why Sandblasting Is an Ideal Abrasive Blasting Method for Preparing Concrete Surfaces

    Sandblasting is a surface preparation technique that involves accelerating a stream of high-speed sand particles against a surface, so as to shape it, give it a smooth or rough texture (or something in between), or remove contaminants from it. Sandblasting has so many applications in the construction world. Take a look at why it is highly favoured when it comes to blasting concrete surfaces.  It's versatile One of the main reasons why sandblasting is highly recommended by many concrete contractors is because the extent of blasting may vary from light cleaning to remove surface contaminants like rust, paint and scale; eroding a thin " [Read More]

  • How to Deal With Iron Staining on Stainless Steel Surfaces

    Stainless steel surfaces can develop rust spots if the stainless steel is exposed to harsh environments, such as saltwater, for extended durations. Those rust spots (iron stains) can cause the stainless steel to pit or have scour marks. This article discusses some of the solutions that you can try in order to remove those rust stains so that the stainless steel regains its attractive appearance. Use Cleaning Creams You can remove minor iron stains on stainless steel surfaces by applying a domestic cleaning cream on the affected area. [Read More]
