  • Large throat area for a wide range of forming dimensions

  • Semi-automated material handling for efficient and safe forming

Blasting, Coating & Galvanizing

A good quality coating system, whether it be by a protective paint or sacrificial zinc galvanization is important to the aesthetics and durability of a steel structure. ESC offers a wide range of coating system options are available to suit many projects and applications. Another aspect frequently overlooked is the packing system and handling supervision that ESC offers to ensure that your asset arrives to your site with minimal or no coating damage.

  • A combination of manual and semi-auto application methods for consistent thickness and ability for application in hard-to-access places

  • Blasting to various surface standards

  • Various coating options - colours, types

  • Careful humidity and temperature control

  • ESC's certified SPCC coating inspectors supervising through the entire preparation and coating process with complete coating reports.

Blasting, Coating & Galvanizing
Steel Testing

Testing at all stages of fabrication is critical in a quality assurance process. All items fabricated by ESC Steel Structures follow a strict Inspection & Test Plan with various hold points to check the components for strength, defects and other important items. ESC offers a full suite and expertise of steel structure testing:

  • High precision, routinely calibrated and certified dimensional measurement equipment

  • ISO, OHSAS, EN 1090, ISO 3834 and other company certifications

  • In-house and external material testing facilities: tensile, impact, chemical, ultrasonic

  • UT, MT, RT, PT, VT testing for welds (at different percentages depending on application and project requirements). Also special methods such as 

  • AWS, NDT, Coating Certification of ESC QA/QC Inspectors

  • Close relationships with reputable third party inspectors

  • Assembly Load Testing, Pressure Testing facilities

  • Coating Inspection - thickness, defects, adherence
