If you have lines to paint then you must have the right equipment. The most effective way to paint lots of perfectly shaped lines on your car park, road or pavement is to use a line marking machine.
Why choose a line marking machine?
If you only have a very limited amount of lines to paint then you may be able to manage with a hand held line applicator, but for most jobs it makes sense to use one or more line marking machines. You could choose either a push-along model or for larger jobs you might prefer one of the line marking machines that allow the operator to ride in comfort while the machine is working. These larger machines are perfectly suited for painting lines in the street, throughout large car parks or even at airports. They offer a much higher production rate than hand held devices and will save you a great deal of time over the course of a large job.
Why not hire your line marking machines?
Line marking is an important job but for most people it isn't something that needs to be done every day. If you only need to use line marking machines on an occasional basis then it makes to sense to hire them. Hiring Graco line marking machines or machines by whoever is you preferred manufacturer is a cost-effective way to have access to equipment when you need it. Hiring avoids the large upfront cost of purchase, and you don't have to pay for storage of the machines when they are not in use.
What type of line marking machines do you need?
If you want to remove old painted lines before painting the new ones then you will need to arrange the hire of scarifying equipment for use before the line painting can begin. When it comes to line creation you will need to discuss the merits of thermoplastic line making and line spray painters. The machine you choose will also depend on when and where you will be painting. If you need to work at night or in low light conditions then look for a machine with a backlit dashboard to provide the visibility you need.
Talking through your plans with the hire company is always a good idea. Once they understand your situation they will be able to direct you to the most suitable hire equipment for your job.
