Powder Coat your Carnival Equipment for a Durable Result

Posted on: January 7th, 2016 by byersbushblog

Carnival rides are exceedingly expensive and they’re constantly left outdoors and exposed to the elements. Many carnival owners resort to painting equipment to keep it in good shape over time. While this works alright it simply doesn’t have the lasting power of a good solid powder coat. If you run a carnival or amusement park you should consider having some of your rides powder coated.

Long-Term Durability

One of the biggest benefits of protecting your equipment with a powder coat is that it will be durable and will hold up for many years, even when exposed to rain, snow and other conditions the coating will hold well. A powder coat is often thicker than paint and won’t suffer from peeling or chipping nearly as soon as paint does. That means your equipment is going to look newer and in better shape for a longer period of time before it has to be retreated.

Excellent Color Selection

Deciding to protect your equipment with a powder coat doesn’t mean that you have to give up your theme. There are tons of different color options to pick from and it’s likely that you will find just the right color and finish to satisfy your needs. You might even find some options that you simply can’t find with traditional paint.

When you work with a major provider like Byers Bush you have more options to pick from in terms of color and finish. You also know that you will be getting a high quality finish that will hold up better to heavy use than some of the other products will.

Protect What You Can

Not every piece of equipment is going to be small enough or easy enough to move to have professionally powder coated and for these parts paint is going to have to be good enough, but there are plenty of parts of your equipment that you should have no problem protecting.

The seats of the rides, the chains that support your rides, poles, rails and other smaller parts of the different rides can all be removed and powder coated for longevity. Anything that can be taken off a ride or isn’t too big in size should be simple to have powder coated and relatively affordable as well.

Save Money on Replacement Equipment

Not only will you give your carnival an updated look by keeping everything powder coated for a fresh appearance, but you’ll also extend the life of your equipment. Most of the metal and other equipment that you have is going to rust over time. That means that eventually you will have to replace parts and at some point the entire ride. This can be a significant cost to the company and something that you want to do as little as possible.

When you protectively coat your equipment it’s naturally going to last longer and remain in better condition. That’s just one more reason to maintain a steady coating on the equipment the whole time that it is in use.

As the owner of a carnival not only do you have all the rides to keep in good condition, you also have all the tools and additional equipment needed to get everything set up and running. These tools cost a significant amount of money as well and they should all be maintained to help preserve your investment.

It’s a good idea to have hand tools, dollies, jacks and other equipment powder coated when the finish starts to wear off. If you keep the equipment from getting rusty it will last much longer and will offer you more years of performance without a need for replacement.

Running a carnival is a major undertaking and it’s even more difficult when you have a bunch of rusty equipment to deal with. That’s why proper protective coatings and care have to be taken to keep everything in good condition. It still won’t be easy to keep your carnival running in tip-top shape, but you’ll have less to worry about along the way, and that’s always a good thing.
