Sunbelt Rentals UK to offer surface preparation equipment
31 October 2023
Sunbelt Rentals UK has entered into a partnership with surface preparation specialists National Flooring Equipment.
The agreement with the US-based company represents the first time it has offered floor removal equipment and will see it distribute the entire range of scraper technology and tooling from National Flooring.
Sunbelt will be the only company in the UK that will offer the Rogue Walk-Behind Scraper for rent, making nine of the units available across three of its sites.
The model is described as a “first of its kind” and is designed to combine the features of a heavy-duty ride-on scraper with the compact size of a walk-behind.
It is said to offer precision steering and fully adjustable blade angles, making it ideal for both hard and soft floor removal.
Other models made available through Sunbelt include the 550 and 5280 compact walk behind scrapers.
Meanwhile, the partnership means National Flooring Equipment adds another distributor in the UK, following similar agreements with Multi Hire UK and PW Flooring Solutions.
Jake Sinna, president of National Flooring Equipment, said, “Without guided support, it can be difficult for users to select the right machine for their job. As a business that puts service and quality first, it’s important that we can provide our customers with the support needed throughout this process, no matter where in the world they are.
“The partnership with Sunbelt Rentals means that we can rest easy knowing that the UK market is getting the technical advice it needs when choosing one of our machines.”
Neil Shakespeare, director of flooring solutions at Sunbelt Rentals, added, “We’re delighted to be partnering with National Flooring Equipment as we introduce this new range of products into our extensive rental fleet.
“We’re passionate about providing new routes to market for customers to access the specialist equipment and solutions they need, with the most flexible rental options.
“By working with carefully selected industry-leading manufacturers, including National Flooring Equipment, we’re able to guarantee that our customers receive the most reliable and advanced solutions available.”
