Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) is currently in the process of expanding their fleet by adding new locomotives and multi-level cars. In order to accommodate these new vehicles, their Frazer Shop will be undergoing significant renovations.
This is a multi-phase project.
Phase 1: Earthwork and stormwater improvements
Later Phases: Construction of additional shop building and vehicle maintenance equipment, additional track modifications, and a new vehicle washer
Shot Blast Inc. was lucky enough to participate in this process. Check out the photos below for an inside look at the team preparing the concrete for an epoxy coating.
This project started in the spring of 2016 and should wrap up in the fall of 2019.
Recently, we took on a project in Philadelphia at NBC 10’s studio. In the photos, you can see our team in action removing the existing, worn tile floor and grinding the concrete underneath.
Next, we applied an epoxy coating and sealed the flooring with a coat of urethane. This new flooring is sleek and will last for years to come.
Day 1: Removing the existing tile and mastic and grinding the concrete.
Day 2: After applying an epoxy coating and before sealing with urethane.
We had the opportunity to help one of our clients, Collegium Charter School in Exton, PA, with their new gymnasium floor.
We removed the tile from the 6,400 sq ft surface and blasted the concrete underneath.
For safety reasons, when installing a floor in a gym, it is crucial that the surface is free of any cracks and that it is smooth. This will significantly reduce the risk of tripping and falling.

Back in September, we traveled to Fredericksburg, VA to take on a project for a customer. We performed a blast and seal on a 220,000 sq ft surface.

We were called again by our friends at Christopher Kunes Construction to polish another Jersey Mikes Sub Shop. As always Shotblast answered the call and delivered a fantastic looking floor. Starting from metal diamonds we worked all the way up to 1500 grit.
If you’re ever in Mechanicsburg, PA stop by to take a look at the floor and enjoy a sub.
