We Do Abrasive Blasting

January 30, 2018 | By: ATD

Efforts are moving and shaking on the Coatings side! ATD has been expanding our coatings division. Our coatings division specializes in light to medium industrial environments with high performance application, techniques and coatings. Coatings Division offers out of the box thinking for creative, economical and durable solutions. This comes from our onboard NACE 3 Coatings Inspector, Bob Ruff. He has 35 years of experience in the industrial coatings field. We are able to provide a one stop shop for niche painting solutions. For example, one of our current contracts required a solution to remove 30 year old coatings from ceilings in 17 different buildings. We designed a scope to including a unique abrasive type coupled with vapor blasting. This system greatly reduced costs associated with otherwise elaborate containment and air purification systems.

Happy New Year

Safety Alert! Swing Fall

November 1, 2017 | By: ATD

This week’s safety alert is focused on Swing Fall

A swing fall hazard occurs when a worker is working outside of their anchorage point safe zone (when the anchorage is not positioned directly overhead). When the worker is outside of this zone, the “pendulum effect” can occur. This effect will cause the worker to swing when they fall, and possibly strike objects during the process. Serious injuries or death can occur if the fallen worker strikes hard enough.
