Top Benefits of Industrial Coatings for Fire Trucks

When it comes to operating as a team of first responders, every single detail of your equipment and process counts toward your ability to do your job well. Even the slightest hiccup can be detrimental when you are working in a field where every second matters. You need to know that you can rely on your equipment to handle the challenges of your job, which are often rigorous and demanding. Here at IXS Coating, we supply industrial coatings that make outstanding options for fire truck equipment.

If you are thinking of upgrading your fleet, consider investing in an industrial coating to help protect the longevity of your equipment. From the grill, which sees a large amount of daily wear and tear, to tool boxes and step ladders, adding IXS Coatings to your fleet can mean the difference between your equipment looking worn and corroded in a matter of a year’s time versus looking pristine for years to come.

Check out the top benefits of adding industrial coatings to your fire trucks and reach out to our team to learn more about how our process works.

The Benefits of Industrial Coatings

At IXS Coatings, we offer specialized industrial coatings carefully crafted by the trusted brand of LINE-X Protective Coatings. These environmentally friendly products contain no volatile organic compounds but offer incredible durability. With almost an endless option for application, a spray coating can help to improve the longevity of the item to which it is applied. Check out some of the practical benefits of adding these coatings to your fire department’s fleet.

Watertight Seal

When it comes to your daily operations as a fire department, there is needless to say a good amount of water that your equipment will come into contact with. From the elements to the process of fighting a fire, having a watertight seal is a must. Industrial coatings can be applied across your fire truck and subsequent gear to ensure that water remains tightly locked out. This helps to cut down on the corrosion that water can cause over time. A simple application of an industrial coating will go a long way in protecting your fire equipment for many years to come.

Corrosion Resistant

Not only do you work with water as a fire department, but you also utilize an array of corrosive materials. From hydraulic fluid to foams designed for putting out difficult fires, your equipment is exposed to a high amount of corrosion. Adding a lining of protective coatings to your tool boxes and other relevant locations can help protect against this corrosion. Due to the careful engineering of our high-performance polyurethane and polyurea elastomer coatings, they can hold up to the worst.

Anti-Slip Technology

Another danger in the field of fighting fires is losing your footing. Due to the fast-paced nature of your work, you need to know that any step you take is on solid ground. One of the greatest benefits of adding an industrial coating to your fire trucks is that you will create an anti-slip material. For any areas where footing is key, invest in the addition of this technology.

Impact Resistant

From the day-to-day wear and tear of the road to the slamming of equipment against portions of your truck, an industrial coating can go a long way in preventing your fleet from being damaged. Our industrial coatings are impact resistant and will hold up against the rigors of your work as well as any trip down the road.

Less Maintenance

Let’s face it. You don’t have a lot of extra time on your hands. The less amount of your day you need to spend maintaining equipment, the better. Adding a protective industrial coating to your fleet will cut down on maintenance needs drastically while keeping your equipment fully serviceable.

The Best Places To Apply Spray Coatings To Your Trucks

The good news is that due to the easy application of our industrial coatings, they can be applied to almost any section of your equipment. Check out some of the top places for the application of these durable coatings:

  • Step rails: Improve traction on your truck by adding an industrial coating to step rails and any other area where secure footing is a must.
  • Fender flares and bumpers: Not only will an industrial coating help keep your fenders and bumpers protected from the rigors of the road, but they will also add to the aesthetics of your fleet.
  • Toolboxes: anywhere you store equipment, there is a risk for damage to occur. If you are hoping to keep your toolboxes protected from corrosion and impact, add a coating to the inside and outside.
