How to Choose The Perfect Spray Rig For Your Business

The right polyurea rig should be customized to manage the jobs you typically do in the field. The amount of polyurea that you apply affects the size, price, and other features of the equipment and the rig that is right for you. However, it isn't always simple to find a great polyurea rig when vendors try to force static packages on you instead of tailoring the rig to your unique contracting requirements.

Fortunately, you can trust the specialists at ArmorThane to provide you with highly customizable and well-performing polyurea rigs that will safeguard all your equipment. Their custom-made polyurea rigs are designed to get your instruments to the job safely and streamline operations. 

What to Look for in a Spray Rig

Whether you are an experienced pro or are just starting in spray foam applications, you need the right spray rig for the job. This means that you must consider your own professional needs and goals. 

Starting can do well with an entry-level polyurea spray rig, whereas evolving businesses have growing demands that require more sophisticated rigs. However, here are some features that contractors globally look for:

  • The ability to customize the spray rig to optimize job performance
  • Great quality rigs that are strong and well-insulated
  • The right size to handle all your equipment
  • All-in-one suitability for on-the-go work
  • Safe and secure storage conditions.
  • Organized storage for maximum functionality
  • A great price for the investment
  • Sets up and tears down quickly and easily for greatest productivity

All of ArmorThane's polyurea spray rigs meet these qualifications and more. They will act as a self-contained, comprehensive job site trailer matched for the type and volume of spray foam you apply. 

The right rig for you may not be the same for another contractor. Some may need a small and highly portable unit for small-scale polyurea applications. Other contractors need heavy-duty rigs that are meant to handle high-volume commercial projects. Speak with ArmorThane today to find out what kind of rig would suit your business the best.

Manufactured in-House with Freedom to choose

At ArmorThane, they would love to speak with you to construct a customized rig just for you. They have helped many customers select and build trailers with custom specifications to meet the unique demands of their contracting business. This results in great cost savings because they include only what you need and don't force you to buy spray foam or other products that you may not need nor want. 

ArmorThane takes pride in making transactions easy and as stress-free as possible for their clients. That's why they don't force anyone to buy a package attached to any rig, though they offer packages as an option for customers who are starting from scratch and want a turnkey operation.

If you choose to purchase an equipment package, they install everything in your work vehicle or provide everything you need, including the truck or trailer. They will also give you two days of equipment training after purchasing a custom mobile spray rig as part of the purchase cost.

Selecting Polyurea Products for Your Rig

If you're starting as a contractor, having a rig isn't enough. You're going to need the highest quality equipment to put inside it. A great place to start is to explore ArmorThane's mobile spray rigs page and to check out their polyurea rigs or foam insulation spray rig packages

They also offer tools and safety equipment. These can be included in your starter kit or be unique additions to your expanding business. ArmorThane carries small replacement parts, quality proportioners, and polyurea guns from brands like Graco and PMC built to last.
