If you're undertaking maintenance during the Festive shut-down, NOW is the time to plan ahead.

Christmas holidays are usually the best time for most businesses, schools, factories and workshops to attend to maintenance and repairs to ceilings, floors, stairwells, walkways, plant and machinery.

The long Christmas break creates an ideal opportunity to carry out routine maintenance, and prior to this period, Technical Paint Services will be holding extra stocks of items such as Floor Coatings, Maintenance Paints and Sports Paints to cover customer requirements.

If you’re undertaking maintenance during the Festive shut-down, NOW is the time to plan ahead for your order for paints & coatings. NOW is the time to think about site maintenance and refurbishing existing floor surfaces.

Over a third of all major workplace injuries are a result of a slip or trip. Almost all of these involve broken bones. These incidents cost employers hundreds of millions of pounds a year in lost production and other costs. They are the single most common cause of injuries at work and they occur in almost all kinds of workplace. Most slips occur in wet or contaminated underfoot conditions: Source Ref Health & Safety Executive.

Wet floors are, inevitably, the result of the change in season with Autumn bringing rain showers, wet vegetation, leaves and other detritus that create unsafe surfaces.

Technical Paint Services’ anti-slip paints are ideal for industrial and commercial floors such as those found in schools, factories, warehouses, garages, retail units and commercial kitchens. They may include loading bays, G.P. & veterinary floors, kitchens and reception areas, walkways and external stairs, plant rooms, pool surrounds, shower areas and communal changing areas. Chemical, Urine and Faeces Resistant Anti-Slip Paints are also available.

Specialist surface preparation may be needed. Please contact our Technical Team on 01202 295570. Call or EMAIL us NOW to be sure your shut-down order is in hand.
