Fleet Line Markers Limited Set to Showcase Line Marking Innovations at SALTEX

Fleet Line Markers Limited is delighted to announce it will be exhibiting at the IOG’s annual SALTEX exhibition on 2nd – 4th September 2014, in order to showcase its latest line marking innovations to key stakeholders within the industry.

As the UK’s largest national event for grounds care, sports, amenities and estates, Fleet Line Markers has exhibited at SALTEX since the early 60’s.

For the 2014 exhibition, the line-marking specialist will be demonstrating a number of new products that have been created for the benefit of groundsmen worldwide - including its new Ki Spray Machine and NEET paint, together with the reformed Kombi 4.

Launched in May this year, the Ki Spray Machine provides groundsmen with a revolutionary line marking machine that offers advanced line definition for all surfaces, with almost zero overspray.

This is achieved with use of Fleet’s NEET paint, attached to the Ki in ready to use bags for immediate marking. This system benefits groundsmen in providing the same durability of paint, but at a significant reduction in marking time and costs.

The newly reformed Kombi 4 can also be used with the NEET bag system or in conjunction with Fleet’s long established dilutable paints, appealing to groundsmen at all levels.

Fleet’s International Sales Manager, Iain Courage comments, “This year Fleet will be showcasing a number of its new innovative products that have been specifically designed with our customers in mind. Both the new Ki Spray Machine and reformed Kombi 4 provide a cost effective solution for advanced line definition, especially when used with Fleet’s ready to use paints.”

SALTEX attendees will also be introduced to Fleet’s range of accessories including the new Nozzle Tip Cleaner and Fleet Wipes.

Manufactured to use with all Fleet nozzle tips, the ultrasonic Nozzle Tip Cleaner works through the cavitation effect caused by high frequency ultrasonic wave vibrations in the fluid – providing an effective solution for the removal of paint, dirt and grime which would normally require tedious manual cleaning by hand.

Iain continues, “Fleet’s new Nozzle Tip Cleaner has been manufactured to ensure groundsmen achieve top results with our line marking machines through cleaning and maintenance. It can be used with a wide variety of Fleet machine parts including nozzles, filters, pipework and couplings, returning them to an ‘almost new’ condition without any damage.”

The Fleet Wipes have also been created to maintain Fleet line marking machines, offering an easy solution for the removal of high quantities of paint with minimal effort or output.

To find out more about Fleet’s new line marking innovations please visit the team at SALTEX on stand E55, where attendees will have the opportunity to participate in product demonstrations and competitions throughout the event.

31st July 2014: Industry leading manufacturer of line marking paints and equipment, Fleet Line Markers Limited, is excited to announce the launch of its ready to use Synthetic Turf Coating (STC) and Permanent Marking Fluid (PMF) line marking paints. 

Currently available to customers as concentrated products, STC and PMF are highly durable line marking paints that are both rain resistant and hardwearing. 

In reformulating both paints to ready to use products, Fleet’s Chemists have provided an easy to use solution for the marking of all hard and synthetic surfaces, for groundsmen at varying capabilities.

The new products will be available to purchase from Fleet in September and will be packaged in drums or ready to use bags that can be attached to Fleet’s revolutionary line marking machine - the Ki Spray Machine – which was launched at the beginning of May this year.
