Not only does bad weather erode or actively damage road markings, but for many organisations it also impedes the ability to get quick service. This is unfortunate because snow, ice and poor visibility actually increases the importance of having high quality road markings. We have had a lot of requests over the last couple of weeks from customers wanting new road markings in a hurry, some of whom have been turned down by other providers.
Partially this was increased demand, but it is also to do with the difficulty of laying down road markings in adverse conditions. Wet or slippery surfaces make it difficult for paint to adhere to the tarmac, giving a lower quality result and increasing drying time.
The solution to this is to use a jet engine dryer to ensure an optimum surface for painting and quick drying time regardless of the weather and atmospheric humidity. Last month we acquired a new Jet engine dryer to increase our work capacity in poor weather and to ensure our customers’ demands are met, especially for urgent jobs.
Rapid Service Throughout The Year
Our expanded capacity guarantees that we can service urgent requests within 48 hours throughout the year, even during bad winter weather. We are into March now and hopefully have seen the last of the snow and freezing conditions for this year, but bad weather can happen at any time of year. This is England after all. Our job at Wilson & Scott is to ensure we have the right kit to provide fast, high quality service whenever you need it, and to ensure the safety of your pedestrians and road users.
