Custom Art

In celebration of Florida Manufacturing Month this October, the Ocala-based team at Double R Manufacturing is drawing the parallels between manufacturing and artful flair.

What began as an annual one-day event to inspire the next generation of manufacturers, has now grown to be a monthlong celebration highlighting the artistic talents and skilled services provided by the American Manufacturing industry. In a world of big-box stores and mass-produced items, this is an important reminder that skilled manufacturing is a true artform.

Artistic Approach to Manufacturing Custom-Made Products

With over 75 combined years of design and fabrication experience, Double R Manufacturing’s experts are providing these artful tips for customers considering custom-made products.

  • Don’t be afraid to start from scratch. Forcing a low-value, assembly-line type of item into a space is not your only option. Skilled manufacturers are prepared to design, assemble, and deliver customized pieces created for your needs and specifications.
  • Use your imagination. Custom fabrication is all about making something unique and one-of-a-kind. Do not limit yourself with something that fits a space but fails to look great, or vice versa. Just imagine the perfect piece providing both functionality and beauty.
  • Share your ideas for design. Artists know conversation leads to innovation. Our engineering department wants to help accomplish your greatest goals. You may offer a CAD file, size requirements, or simply describe your ideas for a totally unique design.
  • Consider limitless options for fine-tuning. Double R’s engineers and craftsmen have honed extraordinary skills in sandblasting, waterjet cutting, welding, and other techniques for bending, assembling, and delivering fine-tuned products.
  • Get creative with the final touches. A final powder coating will add a superior surface quality, longevity, and corrosion prevention. What’s more is that powder coating also offers an infinite array of colors and styles. Most artistically, be sure to also add a logo, ornamental accent, monogram, or graphic to personalize your one-of-a-kind piece.

Customized Equipment, Products, and Specialty Pieces

Customers across Florida and the United States trust Double R Manufacturing for decorative products and essential equipment like doors, entrance gates, fences, railings, stairs, small bridges, barn equipment, and breeding stalls. The list doesn’t stop there. Custom signage, tables, bars, benches, carts, trailers, grills, wall art, yard art, and other specialty pieces are also popular requests from both commercial and residential customers.

Whether we work with an individual or a corporation, one piece or thousands, we enjoy bringing your product visions to life. Call Double R Manufacturing today at (800) 813-3361 to learn more

Custom Metal Work

Steel is a versatile metal that deserves to be celebrated in terms of strength.  As many experts in the American steel industry plan to recognize National Steel Day on Sept. 24 this year, the Florida-based team at Double R Manufacturing is explaining why and how homeowners and businessowners like you can heavily rely on strong and sturdy products made of steel.

Custom-Built Processes for Steel and Metal Structures

The main objective of Double R’s specialists is to customize built-to-last products and deliver the most durable equipment. Consistently, high-quality steel supports us in accomplishing this goal and surpassing customer expectations across the United States.

  • Generally, steel is categorized into four main types: Carbon Steel, Alloy Steel, Tool Steel, and Stainless Steel. These types include various combinations of iron, carbon, and other elements. A type of steel or other material is determined by the specific project needs.
  • Double R’s team specializes in custom-built processes for gates, fences, doors, stairs, railings, signage, shutters, grills, tables, bars, benches, shelving, barn accessories, breeding stalls, trailers, carts, grills, tanks, boxes, and other one-of-a-kind pieces.
  • Typically, the design process will start with a customer explaining their goals or supplying us a CAD file to create custom-built solutions for commercial enterprises, public entities, residential homes, farms, and ranches.
  • Uniquely, each project has different processes for creation. Customization of steel or metal structures may include casting, molding, cutting, shearing, punching, bending, welding, joining, stamping, pressing, end-tube forming, beading, machining, or other processes.

Steel Specialists and Metal Fabrication Experts

Extraordinarily, in addition to customized processes for creating incredibly unique designs, Double R’s steel specialists and metal fabrication experts also have skilled training in powder coating, sandblasting, and abrasive waterjet cutting.

For example, using a high-pressure stream of water with abrasive particles, Double R’s waterjet cutting process allows for the precise cutting of shapes in various metals, including stainless steel, mild steel, aluminum, and other materials.

As for sandblasting, Double R’s experts can forcibly shape a piece of metal, etch a design on a metal surface, or clean corrosion off an old rusty piece of metal.  Sandblasting is also used to smooth a metal surface for applying durable sealants and colorful powder coatings to ensure your unique piece stands the test of time.

Equipment Protection

Based in Ocala, Florida, our team at Double R Manufacturing is fully aware that equipment protection is essential in the southeastern U.S.  During summer, we face relentless rain, wind, and those dreaded tropical storms threatening our treasured homes and businesses.

Fortunately, as artisans and craftsmen of high-quality products, Double R Manufacturing has the design specialties, weather-resisting materials, and expert insights for protecting equipment at your commercial businesses, farms, ranches, and residential homes.

Outdoor Products and Weather-Resistant Equipment
Double R is your authority on durability and functionality. We specialize in products ranging from top-of-the line security gates, to sturdy signage, stairs, fences, railings, shutters, stall doors, trailers, carts, racks, tables, benches, barn accessories, marine products, custom barbeques, and other pieces.  Here are five weather-resistant tips for choosing and protecting your assets:

  • First, shop smart when it comes to major equipment purchases. Big-box stores and other retailers often sell items that may chip or be weak due to poor craftsmanship. Sub-par materials simply won’t sustain their luster in parts of the southeast.  Instead, seek out customized products made of sturdy steel and top-quality aluminum.
  • Customize items you depend on for security and functionality. Ill-fitting or malfunctioning parts can cost you time and money, which is why it is important to get the job done right from the start. Double R Manufacturing specializes in the custom fabrication and design of built-to-last products and equipment that will survive the storms.
  • Seek engineering experts in design and durability. Double R has the skills to ensure each product is superior in both quality and design. Fabrication and assembly of solidly built pieces may include sandblasting, water jet cutting, casting, molding, cutting, shearing, welding, or other processes to ensure functionality while withstanding high windspeeds.
  • In addition, choose products with a durable powder coating. Double R’s experts often add a professional coat of rust-inhibiting powder coating. Products are coated to prevent corrosion and maintain their beauty throughout the seasons. Best of all, coatings are available in thousands of colors, styles, and hardwearing finishes.
  • Finally, take action to secure and protect your property and assets. While Double R’s pieces are always built-to-last, it is still important to have emergency preparedness kits and take steps to further protect your equipment and items throughout your homes, farms, and businesses. Remember to trim trees, shut down electrical systems if needed, and complete an exterior check of your entire property before and after any storm.

With over 75 years of combined experience in design and fabrication, Double R is prepared to deliver your made-to-order pieces in the southeast and across the nation.

We work with individuals and corporations on projects big and small.  Call Double R Manufacturing today at (800) 813-3361 to learn more about our products and services.

In addition to celebrating America’s birthday this July, the team at Double R Manufacturing is recognizing the American ingenuity behind the art of sandblasting.

American soldier and inventor Benjamin Chew Tilghman filed a patent for the sandblasting process around 1870.  He developed this creative idea for paint and rust removal while serving in the Union Army during the American Civil War.

Through the years and around the world, Tilghman’s sandblasting technique has been refined for a vast array of applications, projects, artistic pieces, products, and equipment.

3 Ways Sandblasting Ignites Creativity in Manufacturing

Double R Manufacturing is proud to carry out the creative visions of an American inventor by performing skillful workmanship through sandblasting processes.  Here are a few ways sandblasting serves the manufacturing needs of today’s Americans:

  • Usefully, thanks to the process created by Tilghman, today’s artisans can use sandblasting techniques to clean dirt, rust, corrosion, and contaminates off tough surfaces and metals. This surface treatment process is suitable for cleaning and giving new life to old pieces or creating brand new products and equipment
  • Brilliantly, through a high-speed stream of air and solid particles, the abrasive blasting technique can also smooth a rough surface in preparation of sealants, coatings, or other applications. At Double R Manufacturing, many of our projects require sandblasting prior to applying a final powder coating to ensure superior surface quality, longevity, aesthetic appeal, and corrosion prevention.
  • Creatively, the art of sandblasting allows Double R’s sandblasters to transform a rusty piece of metal into a shiny work of art. By propelling the high-speed stream towards a sturdy piece of steel or metal, Double R’s experts can create a desired effect, etch special designs, and forcibly shape a surface to craft an artistic masterpiece.

Property Value

The real estate market is hot this summer, causing many Americans to ponder the idea of new features to boost the property value of their residential homes, ranches, and farms.

Of course, fixed factors like location and size will determine property value, but a key variable is the condition of a property.  Adding new features or updates with strong products and durable equipment could strengthen the aesthetic appeal and increase the value of your property.
