Energized Transmission Tower Painters
Working With You to Find the Best Solution For Your Towers and Substations
The Tower Power team is experienced in preparing and applying a variety of suitable protective coating and paint systems which are approved for painting transmission and communication towers and other tall structures.
We work with clients and suppliers as partners helping you to find the best solution to your protective coating requirements.
That means whether you require a zinc-rich one-coat product, or a serviceable combination of zinc, vinyl, MCU or epoxy coatings, you can be assured we will prepare the surface and apply the protective coating to a first class standard so that, once that protective coating is on, it will stay on.
