Replacement Hull & Deck of Dredger Boat From Mild Steel

We recently completed work on replacing the hull and deck of a dredger boat with welded metal sections for a local company, in own workshop.

As you can see from the photographs the original shell was in a poor state and very corroded.

We fabricated and welded all the new panels from mild steel and then the hull was painted.

The old deck and other sections were removed and then fabricated from mild steel durbar.

If you have a boat that needs repairing or even completely overhauling, please contact us.

Aluminium Side Panels for Trucks, Wagons and Trailers

wagon side and back panelWe recently completed works replacing the side panels on two delivery trucks for a local builders merchant. We replaced the old panels with new aluminium folded panels with hinges and locks.

As you can see from the pictures below, the panels were fabricated to a high standard and are now ready for being painted (which we can arrange for you if required) and signwritten.

These were all measured and fabricated in house so if you required any type of panelling for any type of vehicle or trailer, from aluminium, stainless steel, galvanised steel etc. please contact us for more details.

Aluminium Stairs – Aluminium Mobile Steps

aluminium mobile stepsWe can fabricate aluminium steps, mobile or fixed (and out of other materials e.g. mild steel or stainless steel) for a variety of uses.

They can be used in aviation or logistics e.g. steps for access to aeroplanes, boats, wagons or other vehicles or for high level access.

Our stairs are usually made from aluminium because it is lightweight and strong which enables them to be easily repositioned whilst being hardwearing and long-lasting.

We can also fabricate any other similar items e.g. platforms, ramps, gantrys, walkways etc.

Our highly skilled team can make these steps to your own specification so please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Splashbacks can come in a single piece or fabricated to fit into a corner and are fabricated from 304 stainless steel.

Alternatively we offer a full stainless steel wall cladding manufacture.

We can fabricate them to your specification and offer measure and fit service if required.
