Larger construction and engineering companies now rely on Grit Blasting UK as a preferred sub-contractor because of our reliability and experience. This is particularly the case in floor preparation.
Floor preparation is an efficient and environmentally acceptable dust free method of preparing concrete surfaces. Grit Blasting UK uses it expertise and the latest in diamond floor grinding technology to provide a clean, professional finish ready for the application of surface treatments such as paint.
Grit Blasting is undertaking more and more floor preparation projects for contractors.

Investing in the latest technology is key to reducing the timescales on bigger jobs such as floor preparation. We maintain a fleet of diamond floor grinders applicable for any size of project, and the latest staff training ensures an efficient and highly skilled team familiar with the latest techniques.
An understanding of the science behind the materials, the paint applications as well and the safety needs of the work and the after-care of the materials is also a key requisite of our work.
