Industrial Roof Cleaning & Painting Services in a live factory, yes without hampering the production, without waiting for shutdowns, downtimes etc.

Here is a way and that is the way.

A Korean based auto components manufacturing major wanted to get the roof truss, roof sheet cleaned and painted within 15 days time, as their client visit, was imminent.

The Korean company approached “Glass Hoppers” for the followings services:

  • To clean the columns, rafters, purlins, roof sheets & roof trusses.
  • To paint the columns, rafters, purlins & roof trusses.

The client was well prepared due to the bitter experience that they had with another vendor whom they found through google and was tightening all the loose ends, basically ensuring that, they do not fall as prey again and really wanted to finish the whole factory roof cleaning services and factory roof painting services within 15 days.

The client was too cooperative and wanted to do anything to complete the industrial roof cleaning services and Industrial roof painting services within 15 days.

Now the challenges,

  • Team Glasshoppers are working at the roof level and the live production is happening at the floor level. This means anything could fall down.
  • Accessing columns and trusses were not a challenge, however accessing the purlins were really a stiff challenge, as booms cannot crawl, on a live production floor.

Now the solutions:

Typically, though we created a fall protection system for protecting materials from falling down; the same was not most conducive solution, to stop the used water from falling into floors. Therefore we requested client to earmark 2 bays per day and nobody would work at the floor level, machines that are moveable could be moved and those cannot be moved would be masked. Thus a work front for only 2 bays per day was created and we ensured adequate rope access professional were deployed at site on a relay basis, that is the one would only dust the cobwebs, another would following cleaning and another would apply paints.

As the bays were free, booms were allowed to crawl and purlins too were accessed, cleaned and painted then and there.

Instead of following a standard coat system we followed 1 + 1 coat system by optimizing a high performance 2 in 1 primer & paint so that priming process is not required, therefore curing time is saved and 1 more additional coat could still be applied.

The client was happy and the team glass hopper completed industrial roof cleaning services and industrial roof painting services within 12 days as there were 24 bays.
