The little things you don’t always see, can make a big difference...
After fabrication, we shot blast all of our steel. It sounds obvious doesn’t it, but many companies may simply try to brush the steel clean before painting it. By shot blasting to SA2.5 level, we ensure the steel is thoroughly cleaned and provides a contamination free surface for the paint.
Our paint is then applied to a nominal thickness of DFT100 microns within the hour, to guarantee the integrity of the finish.
We use 170mm HR UPVC gutter as standard on all of our buildings, with the brackets set at 667mm centres and 110mm downpipe with steel brackets.
The guttering needs to cope with the amount of water coming towards it, not to mention the weight of snow.
We like to do the job properly, first time - it means we have happy customers who buy from us time after time.
There are industry standards for roof fixings. We take these standards and better them. We put more fixings in your roof than the majority of our competitors.
We fix every crown on our roof lights and stitch the side laps with two laplocks per side between purlins. We consider the location to make sure you get a suitable light spread for the application.
On double span roof lights, we also use a foam filler between the roof light and the intermediate purlin.
Sela washers and caps are used to finish each and every one of our roof fixings. We use red caps for roof lights in accordance with H&S guidelines to ensure they are immediately identifiable.
Simple, we use them! It sounds obvious doesn’t it, because that is how a proper job should be finished. It’s amazing however, how many buildings we see where corners like this have been cut and it can compromise the whole integrity of the building.
Health and Safety
All of our work is carried out with the strictest adherence to the most recent Health & Safety regulations, including edge protection and netting.
The law states that you are responsible for the people working on your farm, regardless of whether they are employed or sub contracted. Should there be an incident, you will also be investigated and possibly fined. You therefore need to show that you have employed the services of a qualified company who have the appropriate insurance and safety procedures in place.
