Mobile Spray Rig Systems

Mobile Spray Rig Systems

Engineered and built specifically for coatings and foam applications, Graco Mobile Spray Rigs are self-contained turnkey systems that help contractors become more productive by saving time and improving material yields. Since all the equipment needed for spraying is conveniently stored inside the trailer, a contractor can pull up to the jobsite and begin spraying almost immediately. The contractor does not need to load and unload hoses, guns, proportioners, materials, compressor, nor does he need to locate a power source, because the generator is in the spray rig as well. Unlike standard off-the-shelf trailers, Graco Spray Rigs are foam insulated for better ambient temperature control. Optional heating and air conditioning units further ensure optimum material performance. For information, visit www.graco.com.
