High Performance Paint & Coatings for Self-Storage
"Coil Coated Steel" and the Self-Storage Industry
As the Self-Storage industry has dramatically grown in recent years so too has the use of an extremely versatile building material known as "coil coated steel" revolutionizing how self-storage buildings are constructed. Initially used for roll-up doors this "coil coated steel" may now be used for roofs, exterior building walls, gutters, downspouts, and interior partition walls comprising over 90% of a building’s structure!
What is "coil coated steel"?
Coil coating is a continuous, automated process for "painting" metal before it is fabricated into end products. A specialized coating is applied to sheet metal and flash-cured ("baked") with heat and then rolled back into large spools at the factory. This is then sold to a variety of manufacturers who make mini-storage doors, metal building walls, metal roofs, gutters, downspouts, and other pre-finished sheet metal building components.
There are several types of coatings that can be used in this process but the most common in the Self-Storage industry is "silicone modified polyester", commonly referred to as "SMP". SMP is durable with a life expectancy generally in the range of 10 to 20 years.
It does have one drawback though. Because it is so hard and so smooth it presents special challenges when repainting. Some have likened it to painting glass. Most typical house paints sold at a local hardware or paint store and many commercial paints are not designed for this type of application and soon begin to peel or fade.
