Cladding Spraying – How to spray paint cladding panels

We have been being specified to spray paint cladding panels for commercial premises around the country for over 20 years. We bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to each job which is carried out using the most appropriate tools and techniques for your requirements. More information on how we spray paint cladding panels is below.

Surface Information

Pre-finished steel cladding panels have been extensively used in the construction of industrial and retail units over the last 30 years. Although the panels have a long life expectancy, the factory applied coating (plastisol, PVF2 ) will gradually degrade over time and a programme of regular maintenance is recommended. When you spray paint cladding panels you are helping with this scheme of maintenance.

Coating specification

Specifying the correct paint system is critical to ensure surface compatibility and maximum life expectancy of the finished coating. We work with many of the leading paint manufacturers to offer high performance cladding paints that provide a cost-effective solution for building owners who want to protect and transform the exterior of their property. These paints are developed specifically for spray application on to existing steel, plastisol and PVF2 coated exterior cladding panels. Using the right high quality coating provides resistance to atmospheric pollution, fungal attack, impact and abrasion and exhibits similar performance characteristics to the original cladding panels.

We can apply coatings in a full range of RAL and BS colours and approved applicators for many of the leading high performance cladding coatings including Tor Coatings, Rust-Oleum and AkzoNobel.

Surface preparation

The surface preparation required for your premises is dependent on the condition of the existing coating and can be determined following completion of our free site survey. If the existing coating is in good condition, high pressure power washing will be the minimum requirement. For coatings that have degraded further, partial or complete removal of the existing coating may be required.

Masking and protection ready to spray paint cladding

Extensive masking is completed prior to commencement of the spraying process to ensure that adjacent surfaces are protected.

More about the access equipment used for your cladding spraying project

Typically high level projects will be completed using a combination of scaffold towers, self-propelled booms and scissor lifts. A site survey will be carried out to determine the exact requirements at each site. We always ensure that all operatives are trained and certified by IPAF (International Powered Access Federation) and PASMA (Prefabricated Access Suppliers & Manufacturers Association) to ensure that high level spraying work is completed safely and efficiently.

How we programme spray painting works

Works are programmed to ensure minimal disruption to the normal working routine. Approximately 100m2 of cladding can be spray coated in a single shift on-site.
