Aerial platforms

Would you like to have your new or used aerial platform painted in your company colours? Then you have come to the right place at Gouweleeuw. Our 12 meter high spray booths, including spray lift, are extremely suitable for spraying aerial platforms. For example, we can spray scissor lifts at a height of 8 meters in the spray lift. Because we can spray at this height, the entire scissors package can be painted.

In addition, we can also spray the mast sections of an aerial platform, this makes Gouweleeuw unique as a paint shop! Many paint shops cannot spray aerial platforms because the space and equipment required are not available there. To spray the aerial platform, we extend the mast sections and support them with 4 hoists, which are attached to overhead cranes. This is essential when spraying an aerial platform to prevent bending of the mast sections. After that, the work can begin!

Aerial platform spraying work process

Spraying aerial work platforms takes an average of 5 to 8 working days at our paintshop. The work process consists of the following steps:

  • Disassembly
  • Cleaning
  • Preparation
  • Painting
  • Assembly
  • Lettering
  • Finishing touch

 

When the aerial platform is at our location, it is first disassembled. This is done because rust and oxidation start in places where preservation is poor. After the disassembly process, the aerial platform is washed in our indoor washing area, which is equipped with a maintenance pit. This way, both the top and the bottom can be cleaned. Each part is thoroughly cleaned by using specific degreasers. When the aerial platform comes out of the washing area, it is placed in the workshop of the Preparation department. Preparation is a time consuming, but very important process. The aerial platform is sanded and rust spots are removed.After the preparation, the aerial platform can be sprayed. By applying different paint and varnish systems, your machines are not only protected, but they also have a longer life with better residual values and a professional appearance. After the aerial platform has been sprayed, it returns to the Assembly department. After assembly, a comprehensive inspection of the machine’s operation is performed. As a finishing touch, we also take care of the lettering, so that the sprayed aerial platform fully meets your wishes!
