Shot blasting or sand blasting is used for anything form a clean-up to full paint removal. We can also use the techniques to make the wood look aged and bring out the texture, this is often useful when matching new materials with existing. We have a selection of blasting processes media and power that can all be tailored to the pacific requirements of the project.

Sandblasting Wood​​​​​​​

Many building and structures found in renovation projects have elements of wood.
This may have been previously painted or coated.

It has become very popular to have wooden beams for example restored to their natural beauty.

It can be used in many places
  • Beams
  • Panels
  • Doors
  • Cladding

Structural Steel

Commercial Blasting

Steel has been used as a support material in buildings and structures for over 150 years. Henry Bessemer developed and patented his eponymous Bessemer process in the 1850’s, allowing steel to be produced cost effectively on a large scale. By the 1860’s a mere 10 years late, steel was being widely used throughout the construction industry and continues to be the material of choice for structural support up to this day.
Where

Steel beams provide primary support for many buildings and structures, typically falling into three main categories;

  • Endo-skeleton – Steel beams give support from within the building, often encased in brick or concrete. Bessemer Converter .
  • Exo-skeleton – Steel beams are visible from the outside and provide external/integral support for secondary materials. e.g. bridges, piers
  • Entire – Whole structure made of steel, e.g. towers, bridges, oil rigs.

At A4W Ltd, we have a wide range of fully mobile shot blasting and sandblasting equipment allowing us to carry out works in all areas and locations from city centre rooftops to remote transport bridges.

Why
Steel is made up of two naturally occurring elements, iron and carbon. Exposure to oxygen and water will cause the iron component of steel to corrode, compromising structural integrity and load bearing capacity.

Current commercial development and economic growth has led to a demand for refurbishment, renovation and expansion of both disused and currently in-service buildings and structure’s.

Replacement of structural steels can be timely and expensive, critical factors when considering any development project. Shotblasting or Sandblasting structural steel can offer an effective alternative.
Exposed Structural Steel

In order to stop oxidation and subsequent detrition of the steel, existing rust must be removed and a protective coating system applied. Sandblasting by skilled technicians can provide accurate removal of target material from a specific area, leaving substrates keyed and ready to receive selected coatings.
Shotblasting, Sandblasting structural steel

In some instances, structural steels present themselves with a layer of fire protective paint or foam that has deteriorated or outdated its protective/intumescent qualities. In order to re-certificate for fire-protection, old coatings must be removed before a new coating can be applied.

How
Shotblasting, sandblasting uses media that is fired at speed to directly abrade or peen steel surfaces. With a wide range of equipment and media types we can tailor our services to achieve the exact specification for your project.

Positive aspects of concrete

It is a relatively cheap material and has a relatively long life with few maintenance requirements. It is strong in compression. Before it hardens it is a very pliable substance that can easily be shaped. It is non-combustible. It can be strengthened with other products such as steel rods

Sandblasting Concrete​​​​​​​

Commercial Blasting

Concrete is a building material made from a mixture of small stones, grit, sand, cement, and water, which can be spread or poured into moulds and forms a stone-like mass on hardening.

A method for producing Portland cement was patented by Joseph Aspdin in 1824. Reinforced concrete was invented in 1849 by Joseph Monier. In 1889 the first concrete reinforced bridge was built, and the first concrete dams were built in 1936.

What
Shot blasting, sandblasting is used on concrete surfaces for many reasons, not only to remove lattice, paint, and screeds but much more.
Where
As our shot blasting techniques are so versatile we can treat walls, ceilings, underpasses, pools and tanks to name but a few. We can prepare the surface on newly cast concrete or refurbishment of existing concrete. This is in many cases in the form or metal beams and can be found on or within things such as bridges, buildings, retaining walls and commercial buildings for example.
Why
When old or existing structures are refurbished or updated they are often required to be taken back to the main structural /building fabric. Shot blasting, Sandblasting can remove old coatings and apply a key on the surface ready for new coating application.
How
As we at A4W Ltd, have a wide range of shot blasting and sandblasting machines that are all mobile we can undertake works in all areas from the top of the tallest buildings, under bridges, over water or on site at installation. Shot blasting, sandblasting uses media that is fired at speed to directly abrade or peen the surface. With our wide range of machines and media we can get the exact spec to meet the requirements of your project. We can also offer access, encapsulation and containment solutions. We at A4W Ltd can also apply a wide range of coatings form intumescent to anti rust and many more.

Sandblasting Brickwork

Commercial & Domestic Blasting

Many building and structures found in renovation projects have elements of brick works. This may have been previously painted or coated. It has become very popular to have brick walls returned to bare brick. Walls and ceilings Floors and driveways Interior and exterior. Shot blasting or sand blasting is used for anything form a clean-up to full paint removal.
Painted walls

Previously painted brick work can present some or all of the following problems:

  • Dull looking paint
  • Graffiti or unwanted murals
  • Flaking peeling and cracking
  • Holding of moisture and resulting in
  • Damp problems
Dirty Brickwork

Sometime brickwork can become stained or dirty, this includes:

  • Remnants of ivy or foliage
  • Road dirt
  • Soot or fire damage
  • Staining from old fixtures or fittings
How
We use a water assisted blasting system and this is very adjustable. The benefits of this are; the water element means that the process is 95% dust free compared to the usual dry blast.

In commercial renovations, this is vital as to limit the amount of sand that could be blown onto surrounding areas and allowing the progress of other works to continue.

Our equipment can be tailored to the requirements of your project. We have undertaken works on the rooftops of some of the tallest of buildings in London to under some of the most remote bridge locations in the countryside.

As the dust is suppressed the technician can view the process as its happening allowing us to treat the area just enough to remove the dirt or paint and not over blast the area eating into the brick itself.
Once the blasting process is completed we follow up with a wash down of the area, and the amazing results are clear to see.

We have worked on a range of building projects and we at A4W Ltd are renowned for our ability to work around schedules and production.
