  • What are Protective Coatings?

Protective Coatings cover a multitude of different painting services including floor paintingintumescent painting, industrial painting and resin floor coatings. Warehouses and factories use these industrial painting services to create durable surfaces which will last for many years to come.

Our floor painting services offer protection to concrete floors. Our epoxy resin and polyurethane coatings create a layer of protection for the concrete surface below. This prevents the concrete from being exposed to wear, chemicals and oils.

Intumescent coatings offer heat and fire protection for steel structures. Our fire retardant paint systems provide a specified time of protection for steel, iron and even timber. These coatings can be further protected with a top coat.

Our top coats and industrial paint spraying services offer weather protection, heat resistance or your specified level of protection (e.g. marine paint systems). We offer gloss, satin and matt finishes across a broad range of colours.

  • Mobile Spray Painting

Here at Intercity Contractors we offer a mobile spray painting service. Our professional and experienced team who carry out the on-site spray painting use only the best industrial paint systems available. We can apply weatherproof paints, marine paints and intumescent fire protection coatings.

HVLP technology is utilised along with airless spray painting and air assisted airless spraying to provide excellent coverage on all kinds of surfaces.

Any sized job can be tackled using our portable spray and fume extraction equipment – from small repairs through to spraying cladding on large buildings. An exceptionally high quality finish is obtained using our equipment regardless of repair.

  • Industrial Floor Painting

Epoxy resin paint coatings are hard-wearing and often used in industrial floor painting especially on concrete surfaces. This makes it ideal for factory, warehouse, garage and workshop flooring.

We have a vast colour library meaning we can match almost any colour in a long lasting, durable finish. These coatings are designed for use on industrial floors and other high traffic areas, withstanding both foot traffic and machinery.

Meeting Health & Safety standards is vital for a company to avoid any accidents in the workplace, these epoxy-resin flooring systems can be used in any area which requires chemical and impact resistance.

Our epoxy-resin coatings can withstand oils, coolants and other chemicals as well as abrasions like tyres dry-steering, forklift trucks and other plant machinery. Epoxy resin floors can also provide better light reflection in dimly-lit areas, further enhancing your workplace.

  • Intumescent Fire Protection

Intumescent fire protection is a coating commonly applied to steel and cast iron for fire retardancy. Structural steel beams often used in industrial buildings can be coated in intumescent paint, this will extend the longevity of the structure in the event of a fire.

Once it’s exposed to heat, intumescent paint swells in a controlled manner which then produces carbonaceous char to help with protection. The coating is capable of swelling to many times the original thickness to insulate the area for a specific period of time.

Intercity is dedicated to using the latest and most innovative fire protection coatings for your property, providing potentially life-saving solutions. Our fire protection coatings can be applied to steel structures, timber surfaces, service penetrations and construction movement joints. Degrees of fire protection offered include 30, 60, 90 or 120 minutes.

    • What Our Clients Say

    We had Intercity prep and paint our classic car workshop floor in a hard-wearing epoxy resin paint. We opted for a deep red colour as Intercity could provide almost any finish of our choice. The surface is great for dealing with coolant spillages and oils, and still looks as good as it did the day it was painted all these years on. 


    Peacock Prestige Ltd

    Andy and his team at Intercity managed to squeeze in our HGV workshop over a weekend as it was the only time it wasn’t in constant use. The new grey floor really brings the workshop up to standard and the contrasting yellow markings help distinguish different areas.


    NRS Waste Management

    Having been the same paint since the 1980s, our single-garage floor was starting to look quite tatty. We had Intercity out to freshen the garage up with a new coat of epoxy paint that is much more suitable than the old paint. Now I don’t have to worry about wheeling my toolboxes around on this new durable coating.
