National Flooring Equipment, the surface preparation equipment manufacturer, will be hosting two one-day training sessions on the 11th and 12th of April in Warrington, to help contractors in the UK. The sessions will take place at Multi-Hire Power Tools and anyone that would like to register for one of the training days can contact the distributor.
The first day of the training will focus on a range of National Flooring Equipment’s shot blasters, which can strip, clean and profile concrete in a single step, while on the second day attendees will work with a range of walk-behind and ride-one strippers that remove original coatings and prepare concrete for new coverings.
As the company’s first large-scale training event in the UK, National Flooring Equipment hopes that all those participating will gain more knowledge, will understand what to consider when choosing the right equipment for each job and will have the opportunity to experience hands-on the company’s machines.
“We want to support our customers across the world and this will be the first of many training sessions we host in the UK,” explained Nick White, UK and Ireland country manager at National Flooring Equipment. “Our employees all have years of expertise in the field and these training days allow us to pass on that understanding and knowledge to contractors. As their equipment understanding increases, it will also improve job efficiency.”
During the training sessions, contractors will learn the basics of proper machine set up and how to operate each machine to get the desired results. Moreover, they will also learn how to properly clean and maintain machinery and the main health and safety considerations when using surface preparation equipment. Cutting concrete releases silica dust in the air, which is harmful when inhaled, therefore contractors must know how to reduce dust exposure in the workplace.
National Flooring Equipment has manufactured equipment for over 50 years. It offers bespoke training to all its customers to suit their needs, with group, personal and online training offerings.
