As coachbuilders and horsebox manufacturers our commercial spray
shop department, with over 30 years of paint experience in both the
commercial vehicle and the aerospace (military and commercial aircraft)
industries, has proved invaluable. Rather than manufacture a horsebox
to completion then drive off premises to have it painted we paint at
each stage of the build process. This increases the quality of our
finished product in both looks and longevity. Horseboxes notoriously
rot from the underside of the skirt up. As part of our commitment to
building an unrivaled name in quality with the Helios brand our
commercial spray shop team paint every Helios at the sub frame stage
with 3 coats of protective paint. At the end of the build process when
the horsebox enters the spray shop again for full painting they spray
the underside once more, painting any added parts, then Waxoyl the
whole underside. This attention to detail is only one item that sets us
apart from others.
We use the highest quality materials to finish our builds and resprays.
Our paint procedures include full preparation, etch primer, 2k HS
primer, base coat (metallic) and 2k clearcoat or 2k solid colour. We
can use metal flake in the clearcoat if desired. Vinyl decals can be
designed to your own personal choice or we can design them for you.
Not only do we spray our own new builds, we have a good turnover of
horsebox resprays. We take great pride in finishing our horseboxes in a
high quality product. Our attention to detail is second to none. The
same applies to our repainting for tractor units, box/panel vans,
cement mixers, tippers and flatbeds.
We carry out non-major repairs prior to repainting. The
coachbuilding workshop will undertake major alterations and repairs to
your requirements. Static items are easily accommodated in our two
thermostatically controlled spray shops. The larger of the two areas
enables us to work on most vehicles.
Coat-X fulfils all the requirements for our quality horse areas and
on our horsebox ramps. Because it is totally water proof and sprayed on
at high temperatures it seals every part. It looks fantastic after each
wash and is very hard wearing and light. We have used this product for
years and other manufacturers are now following our lead. It is down to
solid research, investment in machinery and our committed conscientious
team of sprayers, that the finish in our Helios horse areas and ramps
are at the forefront in our industry. We have been so busy with this
product from the start that we started a new business .
We offer the Coat-X polyurea resin spray-on protective coating, as an
alternative to heavy rubber mats and kick sheet, to customers with
existing horseboxes and to those with horseboxes being built by other
manufacturers . This is another area where we lead the way with other
manufacturers having ramps and horse areas sprayed at our workshops.
Coat-X polyurea resin spray-on protective coating is a tried and
tested system and a very versatile coating product. It offers corrosion
resistance, waterproofing as well as abrasion protection. It removes
the need for gluing or screwing a wall covering into the horse area and
also removes the need for heavy mats on the floor. Because Coat-X is
sprayed over the whole ramp surface, walls and floor in the horse area
it is completely waterproof. Our granules in the top surface allow grip
whilst letting water run between hoofs or shoes and the ramp surface.
The finish is extremely neat, not affected by sun or heat and looks
like new after each washing.
