Why Do We Powder Coat Our Shelves?

When you talk to the CAEM teams about colour choices for your store shelving, you may come across the term 'painted' or 'sprayed'. They will ask you at the point of ordering what colour or colours you want your shelving sprayed/painted in. 

CAEM offers a range of 15 standard colours plus a further range of 150 extra colours and finishes on demand, but did you know that here at CAEM we don't actually 'paint' your shelving at all, it is actually powder coated in our state of the art facilities.

Why would we powder coat shelving instead of painting it? What follows are 6 reasons why we choose powder coating over regular painting:

1. Durability and Longevity Powder coating provides your shop shelving with unparalleled durability and longevity. It forms a robust protective layer that resists scratches, chips, and corrosion, reducing the need for frequent maintenance or replacements.

2. Enhanced Aesthetic Appeal Together with our huge range of colour options, powder coating provides a perfect, smooth and consistent finish, creating a professional and polished look that enhances your shop's overall appearance.

3. Eco-Friendly Solution Powder coating is environmentally friendly, emitting minimal volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the atmosphere. This aligns with our vision as an environmentally conscious business, and in turn passes to you and your premises.

4. Efficiency and Time Savings Powder coating is a faster and more efficient process than traditional painting. Its electrostatic application eliminates the need for multiple coats and drying times, reducing production time, and the time it takes for you to receive your store fixtures.

5. Resistance to Harsh Conditions Powder-coated shelving is highly resistant to chemicals and UV light, ensuring it maintains its appearance and functionality even in challenging environments.

6. Easy Maintenance Powder-coated shelving requires only simple soap and water for cleaning. The coatings are also resistant to cleaning solutions.
