With a 350m² facility in Lerwick, we can handle some of the most significant jobs regarding blasting and coatings. We have the only workshop available for Thermal Metal Spray in zinc and aluminum applications using Gas and Arc processes. Through our highly talented and experienced blast shop team,  we are set to deliver all blasting needs to you and your project.

At LEF, we can supply metal coatings in Zinc and Aluminium applied through flame and arc processes. This, coupled with a zinc-rich primer and polyurethane top coat, will endure through the toughest of corrosive coastal, marine, or high salinity areas (or just a typical day on Shetland). We can provide this system to both ISO and NORSOK standards when required. This high-quality coating system will extend the length of service dramatically. We are noted in European standard ISO 14713 as giving 20 years to first maintenance in aggressive environments. 

Our blast shop has gained a fantastic reputation for its high-integrity surface preparation and coating for on-site works at clients’ premises and within our extensive coating facility.

Our facilities support various industries, including Energy from Waste, Oil & Gas, Subsea, Renewables, and Marine and Steelmaking.

No job is too small. No job is too big. LEF is built to last. Solving your problems.

Coating Inspection

All of our projects with our clients come with in-house testing. We have an ICORR Level 2 Coatings Inspector available and we are always available to discuss any inspection which you may require.

Abrasive Blasting

For abrasive blasting, we use a recyclable metal blast grit which ensures our systems are cost-effective & eco-friendly whilst maintaining a quality result. We are also versatile and can change out mediums from steel to sand or glass and many others at the change of a hose. We are also capable of mobilising quickly to carry out offsite blasting at very short notice.

Thermal Metal Spray

In terms of Thermal Metal Spray, we are Shetland’s only engineering company to offer this in Zinc & Aluminium application using Gas & Arc processes which are a highly durable alternative to galvanizing. This is a fantastic solution which can be applied to anything from subsea installations to application for domestic requirements. This process is widely used in the Oil & Gas industry and is suitable for other sectors.

Project Management
