Surface preparation and painting during the winter can be extremely challenging with cold weather and sub-standard surface temperatures. Often, this time of year is the only opportunity to take critical operations offline for maintenance. No matter the time of year, delays are costly and need to be avoided or minimized. This is where rental equipment, such as temporary climate control can help keep winter painting projects running and completed on time.
The project may be a water tank, a pipeline, a ship, even a metal surfaced building. Whatever the project may be, when painting and coating operations happen during cold weather, challenges remain. Bringing the surface temperatures up to a suitable level is paramount for painting application. If blasting is taking place, concerns about rust remain, despite the lower dew point in colder weather. In addition, the application of paint in cold weather can be challenging, with concerns about meeting the paint specification for application. To help achieve the best results, as well as complete the project on time, many painting contractors turn to rental climate control equipment to help stabilize the environment and create ideal conditions for painting and coating.
