There is a wide variety of configurations and materials commonly used in the fabrication and construction of utility buildings. But they all have one thing in common, the need protection from the elements. Whether concrete, steel, wood, aluminum or fiberglass, Mother Nature will find away to break into any structure.Valuable equipment can be exposed to dirt, moisture and pests that can damage or destroy your assets, requiring premature repair or replacement.
Utility trucks are used by contractors and commercial personnel to help complete some of the most demanding work. These trucks must be able to transport heavy and often bulky equipment to and from the job site in a safe and secured manner. Without the use of these trucks many contractors and commercial personnel would not be able to complete their jobs.A local contractor came to LINE-X in need of a solution for the rust corrosion on his utility bodies. The factory paint protecting these vehicles was quickly wearing away, allowing severe rust to corrode the bed and tops of the cabinets. Fine particulates in the air compounded the issue. In the past they had tried a variety of coating solutions including slip-resistant adhesives and other do-it-yourself coatings. None of these effectively held up to the demands of working around these harsh environments.
Several fan shrouds were located in an open warehouse. The exposed sharp edges of the shrouds created a risk of injury to people in the ware-house. Because the shrouds were black and they blended into the background, accelerating the risk for accidental injury. OSHA considered the fan shrouds to be a workplace hazard.
Wrought Iron Furniture
Wrought iron furniture is popular all over the country. Homeowners enjoy the classic look of the furniture on their deck or patio. They also like its somewhat heavy construction which makes the furniture stable in windy conditions. The most common topcoat finishes found on wrought iron furniture are either paint or powder coating. While owning wrought iron furniture has several advantages over other options for outdoor and patio furniture, it does have several disadvantages. One of the major disadvantages of wrought iron furniture is its inability to fight the outdoor elements, despite a topcoat finish. Whether the initial coating is paint or powder coating, eventually the furniture will rust and cause unsightly, brown and reddish colored streaks and stains on both the furniture and deck or patio. Because LINE-X is nationally recognized for protecting truck beds against rust and corrosion, a customer decided to have their wrought iron furniture covered and protected by LINE-X.
Waterproofing Outdoor Showers

At many public beaches and hotel pools an outdoor shower is provided to help keep guests comfortable and pool areas clean. While convenient for guests and visitors, outdoor showers can be a maintenance challenge if not properly constructed. Unprotected wooden walls and floors can rot very quickly in damp environments. One city parks manager came to LINE-X looking for a permanent, durable and aesthetically pleasing waterproofing solution.
