Anti skid plates re-coating - should you do it?

Posted by Martin Heaton on 4 April 2013 | 0 Comments

Re coating anti skid road plates for hire companies is important, because hire rates are more for coated road plates. The amount of revenue generated compared to plain plates is considerable. If you have plain plates or coated plates that require a new surface it doesn't cost as much as you might think. Here at Heaton Products we offer an affordable re coating service. We can arrange collection of your plates and return when ready. For further information please contact sales on 0845 094 2347.
