Southampton, United Kingdom, August 21, 2016 --( Direct Tool Company completes installation of commercial spray booths for progressive train refinishing and repairs company Arlington Fleet Services Ltd.

Having supplied tools, consumables and coatings to Arlington since 2010 Direct Tool Company (better known as DTC) were selected as the sole consulting firm to carry out this bespoke spray booth installation project.

The assignment entailed the procurement and installation of two significant commercial spray booths in line with complex health and safety, environmental and fire safety legislation.

“Direct Tool Company were quick to deliver this challenging, involved project set before them. The copious legislative complications affirmed to me that expert consul was vital to succeed on budget and to schedule,” said Barry Stephens, Managing Director of Arlington Fleet Services.

In brief DTC sourced reconditioned spray booths equipped with dry filter extraction in conjunction with direct-fired heating powered through means of a gas burner. High level lighting and insulated electric roller shutter doors allowed for optimum performance and practicality, whilst explosion relief paneling and air recirculation system secured safety of staff. Advanced Magnehelic pressure monitoring and push button controls were also incorporated granting even greater safety precautions.

“This is another project completed on budget and on time and we’re delighted to hear Barry’s pleased with the result. Having successfully supplied, delivered, erected, wired and commissioned the two spray booths we have gained more insight into the rail vehicle industry and are now already handling similar enquiries from similar firms,” said Tim Wakeford, Managing Director of Direct Tool Company.

In only 9 days DTC were able to supply, deliver, erect and commission the two commercial spray booths curtailing any disruption to Arlington’s operation. The completion of this fully equipped paint shop has armed Arlington with the ability to conduct full livery schemes both large and small.
