Powder Coating Double R Manufacturing

 

Many people are dreaming of a coating of white snow for the holidays, but the Florida team at Double R Manufacturing is busy making customers’ dreams come true with customized powder coatings for products that are ready-to-ship nationwide this season.

Limitless Powder Coating Colors and Finishes
From finishes that are black and sleek to bronze or antique, durable powder coatings are now available in a huge selection of finishes and thousands of colors for metal equipment and products around your home, farm, or business.

Whether you need manufactured products that are a rustic red for the holiday season or shiny silver for modern sophistication, Double R’s experts can provide an array of powder coating options for your gates, doors, stairs, railings, signage, shutters, grills, tables, bars, benches, farm accessories, breeding stalls, and countless other manufactured products and equipment.

Imagine the possibilities with standard color wheel hues, pastels, translucent, metal flake, candies, hammertones, clear shades, or two-step overlay.

Benefits of Powder Coating by Double R Manufacturing
As detailed in Double R’s powder coating section of the website (See Gallery), powder coating is a type of coating that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. In contrast to conventional liquid paint, powder coating does not require a solvent to keep the binder and filler parts in a liquid suspension form.

Less-equipped suppliers in the manufacturing industry do not have Double R’s years of experience, and most do not have specialized facilities to handle the big projects. Double R has a 12 x 12 x 21 foot booth to get powder-coating jobs done onsite and on time.

Built-to-Last, Low-Maintenance Metal Equipment
Double R’s custom fabrication and professional techniques help provide corrosion protection, which also helps prevent unsightly effects of chipping.  When perfectly applied by a professional, powder coatings can create sealed, weatherproof, and rust-inhibiting surfaces.

Uniquely, Double R’s skilled engineers specialize in powder-coated aluminum railing systems, which are widely popular due to durability.

Additionally, residential and business entrance gates are incredibly popular among customers throughout Florida and the Southeastern U.S. Gates and entrances offer visitors the first glimpse of your property. Customers love to enhance the beauty of entrance gates with curved accents, monograms, and customized powder coatings and finishes designed by the fabrication experts at Double R Manufacturing in Ocala, Florida.

Surface preparation by sandblasting

Sandblasting and its amazing benefits deserve to be in the spotlight this September.  Why, you ask? Because in the blink of an eye, the sandblasting department at Double R Manufacturing can give new life to an old piece of equipment or masterfully create a design of your dreams.

Through skillful sandblasting and meticulous workmanship, Double R’s artisans can transform a rusty piece of metal into a shiny new piece of art.  To help everyone understand the sandblasting process and its benefits, here are a few answers to customer questions.

Sandblasting Questions – Asked and Answered

– What is sandblasting?  During sandblasting (a/k/a abrasive blasting), tough surfaces are powerfully cleaned, crafted, or smoothed with a high-speed stream of air and solid particles. Double R’s professionals propel the stream toward a piece to create a desired effect.

– How does it work? First, air and solid particles (i.e., sand, grains, granulated bits) are mixed in the chamber of Double R’s high-quality sandblasting equipment.  Then our skilled artisans point the sandblasting equipment’s nozzle toward the surface of the piece (a sturdy material, such as steel) and forcibly blast that abrasive mixture to clean, craft, or smooth the piece.

– When is sandblasting done? Sandblasting has diverse purposes and is used in many industries.  In addition to cleaning off dirt, rust, corrosion, and contaminates – sandblasting also smooths a rough surface to improve the successfulness of sealants, coatings, or other applications.  Double R’s sandblasting experts can also use this technique to forcibly shape a surface or etch designs.

– Why choose sandblasting? This surface treatment process is suitable for cleaning and giving new life to old pieces or creating an array of new materials and types of equipment. At Double R Manufacturing, we also emphasize the benefits of sandblasting materials for surface coating preparation (such as final powder coating). Double R’s sandblasting techniques help ensure superior surface quality, corrosion prevention, and longevity.

– What can we sandblast?  You name the piece of metal, and Double R Manufacturing’s skilled engineers and craftsmen have the tools and solutions for you. Our sandblasting skills have helped us create a huge selection of entrance gates, barn and stall equipment, accessories, railings, stairs, custom steel wall art, carts, trailers, tool boxes, party grills, shelving, ramps, storage boxes, bars, serving tables, signage, marine products, and more.

Whether we work with an individual or corporation, one piece or thousands, Double R’s sandblasting department loves a challenge.

Constitutional Rights to Own Property

The U.S. Constitution and several of its Amendments mention property rights.  Put simply, every person has the right to own property individually or to own property in association with others.  Owning a home, a farm, or a business are quintessential American Dreams, and designating our properties with unique customizations is a tangible example of our liberty.

Some people choose a monogram for a dignified style of gate, while others choose unique graphics and accents to display artistic flair.  Similarly, as a way to make a great first impression and create brand awareness, many commercial properties opt for business logos displayed on entrance gates.

Top-Quality Steel and Durable Aluminum Gates

To surpass the expectations of each customer, Double R Manufacturing designs fully welded entrance gates with top-of-the-line operating systems.  Whether you choose single or double gates that swing or slide, you can count on Double R’s skilled engineers to create a beautiful and durable design.  From sandblasting and water jet cutting, to custom fabrication and final powder coating, our specialists use only the best possible materials to provide the highest standard in finished products.
