Propane is a construction industry staple. From propane temporary heat to propane generators and propane forklifts, workers know they can rely on it for its efficiency, affordability, and safety.
But there’s also unexpected propane-powered construction equipment that can make life on the job even easier — particularly for jobs working with concrete and epoxy floor coatings.
For epoxy floor companies, propane floor sanders can be a gamechanger from start to finish.
First of all, propane is more affordable than gas or diesel, financially lowering the bottom line of projects (always a welcome surprise!)
Moving heavy materials to and from sites is an important part of a construction job. Whether moving dirt from an excavation site, clearing up after a demolition, or moving concrete between locations, propane-powered forklifts and concrete buggies make your job easier both indoors and outdoors.
That’s right: propane-fueled equipment can be used inside or outside. This is because propane releases extremely low emissions, saving you from dangerous fumes that could affect your health and your job site materials. Whereas gasoline or diesel can be hazardous for the health of your crew, propane is perfectly safe.
This is a huge advantage for floor finishing in enclosed areas! Propane sanders, propane grinders, propane floor finishers, and propane strippers are safe for indoor use — and many models feature built-in carbon monoxide detectors for even more peace of mind.
The portability of propane is also a huge advantage. Instead of having to deal with plugs and power sources with electric construction equipment, propane is ready to use on its own. Construction sites often aren’t equipped with electrical utilities, or, in the case of large areas, there could be too much space between your machine and the outlet. (Not to mention the safety hazard of tripping on a long cord!)
As far as construction equipment running on battery technology, the downtime needed to let batteries recharge wastes precious time. Propane is always ready to go when you are.
Propane power trowels are among the biggest time-savers in floor finishing, helping to smooth and refine concrete flooring in record time and at a low cost.
We know you don’t have time or money to waste, and propane can help your construction or flooring business save on both. To get started, reach out to our customer support team at 1.800.647.4427.
