With Giromax we have the solutions to all your coating problems

We are Giromax approved contractors for the UK. The close working relationship we have with Giromax gives us priority access to their most advanced coating systems. The wealth of knowledge we’ve gained over 25 years means we are one of the premier applicators for Giromax products. Whether you need a full roof overcoat, wall cladding refresh or cut edge corrosion treatment, we’re here to help.

Industrial building envelopes suffer stresses all year round. Extreme heat, rain and wind are becoming the new norm for our weather here in the UK. High humidity is a cause for concern too. Climate change means coating systems need to be more robust than ever before. For roof and wall cladding, gutter systems and sheet end treatments we almost always recommend Giromax products.

A single coat of Giromax® Roofcoat is enough to achieve full protection against the elements. Guttercoat, Edgecoat, Girocote and Rooflight all required just two coats for maximum protection. This allows Giromax approved contractors such as ourselves to work faster and more efficiently. Best of all we’ll cause minimal disruption to the operations of your business. In most cases you’ll hardly know we’re there — unless you go outside and look up!

Giromax approved contractors – how it works

In order to become an approved Giromax contractor a programme of training must be undertaken. Our paint technicians learn the preparation and application process of all five systems. They learn about how each product is manufactured and its intended use. Advice on weather conditions is a key part of the programme. Although most Giromax products can be applied in wet conditions there are temperature limitations.

Our technicians are tested on all aspects of each product. Only when they can demonstrate an expected level of competence with each product are they issued with certification. As a company we are given approved contractor status when Giromax are happy that we, as a company, have a sufficient knowledge of their products. D&D Coatings have enjoyed Giromax approved contractor status for over 25 years.
