How To Choose A Good Industrial Paint Sprayer

Industrial paint sprayer

Maybe you’re looking for an industrial paint sprayer service to refresh and update your commercial building. Or maybe you’re looking for industrial paint sprayer recommendations so you can DIY it. Either way, this blog will help you know what to look for to get a professional, seamless finish that will give your property a new lease of life. 

Industrial Paint Spraying – The Basics

What can an industrial paint sprayer offer you that a good old-fashioned paint brush and roller can’t? That’s something we get asked a lot here at GI Sykes. The pros to using a paint sprayer are fairly comprehensive – the coverage is beautifully even, the project moves quickly and in the hands of the right contractor your paint will last for years to come.

With that in mind, you might think that buying an industrial paint sprayer and painting your property yourself will save on costs. But it’s worth remembering that even if a job looks easy, it probably has its challenges! If you’re weighing up the pros and cons of hiring a commercial paint spraying contractor over attempting to do it yourself, read on to find out what makes a good industrial paint sprayer company. 


It goes without saying that the more times you do something, the better you are at it. So, with nearly 60 years in the construction trade under our belt, we’re pretty confident that our experience speaks for itself. Over the decades, we have spray painted hundreds of industrial buildings, shutters and plant machinery, restoring them to a pristine finish. 

Experience is one of the cornerstones of any ‘good’ contractor. Paintwork might seem trivial, but uneven, dripping paint is easily noticed and can devalue a company’s reputation – not to mention the hazard that poorly applied coatings present. Any gaps in your paint can allow corrosion and damage to occur, making the cost of repair far greater.


Alongside experience sits skill. While doing something often does improve your ability, having a skill at doing it is a whole new ball game. We’re not ashamed to say that we’re fussy at GI Sykes. We employ our contractors based on their experience, ability and skill. Every member of the team has excelled in their area of expertise, making us one of the most proficient contracting firms around. 

The skill involved as an industrial paint sprayer is pretty impressive. It’s not just a point-and-spray situation (although there’s satisfaction in covering a large blank wall!), because of the many types of spray painting services we provide, our team have to have a vast knowledge of how to treat different types of surfaces. For example, cladding spraying requires an understanding of the application of paint to a ridged or corrugated surface, and window spraying deals with all manner of materials from aluminium to uPVC to steel.


There is one thing you can be certain of with a professional industrial paint sprayer like us, and that’s quality. We’ve seen the results given by subpar paint sprayers or poor-quality materials. From the machines we use to the brands we work with, everything has been hand-selected for its durability and high-calibre finish.

We’re proud to work with market-leading paint manufacturers Giromax and Tor Coatings. Both invest heavily in product development, which has led to innovation in the industry. 

What Can Be Spray Painted?

Now you have an idea of what to look for in an industrial paint sprayer, let’s take a look at the kind of paint spraying projects that can be done. 

Cladding Spraying

Cladding spraying is one of the most commonly asked for projects. On every industrial or trading estate in every town throughout the UK lurks peeling, blistered and faded cladding. It’s one of those things that can go unnoticed for a while but once you see how ugly and unprofessional it looks – you can’t unsee it. If your cladding is in need of a little TLC, then cladding spraying is worth considering. It not only restores your building’s exterior to a flawless finish, but it also helps to protect it against the harmful effects of weathering.


Roller Shutter Spraying

Roller shutters are the Nightwatch of your building. You likely don’t see much of them, since the only time they’re in use is when you’re not there but they serve an important purpose – they secure your property. A rusty, corroded surface is weaker – not to mention less appealing to passers-by. 

Another issue with roller shutters, particularly those in busy areas, is vandalism. Shutters seem to be lovely, big canvases for aspiring Banksys – sadly the ‘artwork’ most people are left with costs money to resolve, rather than adding it!

Industrial paint spraying makes light work of covering up unwanted graffiti, and for persistent vandalism problems, we can also use anti-graffiti coatings that make it really easy to get rid of tags, drawings and other markings from your shutters.

Window Spraying

Window frames are a great way to add colour to an otherwise boring building – whether you reinforce your branding by using company colours or go for a trendy and smart colour like anthracite. With paint spraying, it’s a simple project that we can undertake in lightning-quick time.

Plant Machinery

Respraying your plant machinery is a savvy way to extend its lifespan. The paint does more than just look nice, it protects the metal from corrosion and damage. So if your machinery seems a bit battered, take a closer look – you may notice rust and splintering of the metal. 

By recoating your machinery, you prevent it from becoming a much bigger repair job. Plus it looks smart too, which is a great benefit.
