Municipalities face a variety of challenges in maintaining civic infrastructure, including things like parking bollards, lighting fixtures, metal gates and fences, bike racks and trash cans, park benches, tables and seating, playground and recreation equipment, and more.
All of these items are subject to wear and tear over time. They may require repair or replacement to keep them safe, functional, and to maintain their aesthetic appeal. In dealing with aging equipment, municipalities struggle with competing pressures. They face limited budgets, the possibility that deferred maintenance will only cost more in the long run, and the risk to public safety if repairs go undone.
For these reasons, finding ways to preserve and protect municipal infrastructure, especially outdoor equipment, is in every local government’s interest. For many of these uses, powder coating is the best solution.
When it comes to park benches, tables, bike racks, sign poles, gates and fences: when exposed to weather and changing temperatures over time, their painted surfaces are almost certain to fail. Rust soon follows and repair and restoration costs can spiral out of control.
Powder coating offers a durable alternative to painted surfaces for metal substrates.
Compared to other coating options, powder coating delivers several advantages. First, it is highly durable and resistant to chipping, peeling, and fading, even in harsh outdoor environments. This makes it an ideal solution for metal surfaces exposed to the elements, such as many types of municipal equipment, from playground gear to nature parks and parking lots.
Like paint, powder coating is available in a wide range of colors and finishes, allowing municipalities to match the coating to the existing aesthetic of their surroundings. This is particularly important for structures such as park benches and playground equipment, which are often designed to blend in with their natural surroundings.
Powder coating offers a range of benefits for municipalities, such as versatile application for indoor and outdoor structures, fast production times, and an environmentally friendly process that produces no hazardous pollutants.
Powder coating also provides a durable finish that can withstand weathering, wear, and the effects of ultraviolet radiation, making it an excellent choice for outdoor infrastructure
Compared to other coating options, such as paint, powder coating can offer significant cost savings over the long term. This is because powder coating is more durable and longer-lasting than paint, reducing the need for frequent repainting or maintenance.
By using powder coating, municipalities can ensure their infrastructure remains visually appealing and functional for years to come.
