The following are our requirements for our shot blast customers.  Please feel free to contact us should you have any questions, comments or concerns about the following:

1. EVERYONE coming within 20m feet of the shot blast machine must wear safety glasses.

2. A 600 volt 3-phase 30 amp electrical supply is required for the shot blast operation. Our qualified technicians will hook-up to this electrical supply.  Gary Bourke's Painting or it’s technicians will NOT be held liable for any damage or inconvenience this may cause.  Please make disconnect available upon arrival.

3. Any objects on or near the floor to be blasted, which are fragile or valuable should be moved by the customer. Our company will NOT be responsible for any damage that may occur to these articles.

4. Please be aware that the machine will leave a 3 - 4” border around the perimeter of the floor.  It also leaves unblasted sections underneath any countertops, racks, etc. that are less than 3’6” high, as that is the height of the machine. These areas can be addressed with diamond grinding. Diamond grinding is always extra.

5. Our blast machine uses small steel shat to etch the concrete floor.  Gary Bourke's Painting will attempt to collect all of this residual shot with a magnetic broom.
