Haltermann Carless – External Works 2017

Working to a ‘Sherwin-Williams’ paint specification, VariBlast Ltd were employed to carry out a full re-decoration of four large roof trusses situated above the ‘Bullring’ shopping centre in central Birmingham.

Working in such a high footfall location (35 to 40 thousand people per day) presented its challenges when operating such large machinery.

The works included; St3 Hand & Power Tool surface preparation, followed by a solvent clean and three coat paint system. All works were carried out by hand at an average working height of 15 to 20m above ground level, via 120ft MEWP access.
