CALGARY – EverLine Coatings & Services has re-purposed its line painting equipment to become mobile disinfection units as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak.

The company now offers pressurized, mobile disinfecting services for surfaces at hospitals, grocery stores, distribution centres, and other high-traffic businesses and public locations across Canada.

Like other businesses, EverLine Coatings has been looking for a way to pivot its services to help fight the spread of the pandemic.

“We want to be part of the solution to keep people safe during this crisis,” said president of EverLine Coatings & Services John Evans.

“I was so fortunate to discover that this is actually feasible and affordable for clients – and could potentially save lives. I felt it was my duty as a Canadian and as a human being to concentrate my company’s resources, so that we could help in any way possible. There is not a better time to get this work done, and we are ready to work around the clock to help out. Line painting machines are uniquely effective by being mobile and can apply disinfectant with a concentrated blast that will blow this virus into oblivion.”

Locations that may benefit from this service include:

  • Warehouses and distribution centres
  • Grocery Stores and Restaurants: Cart corrals, doorways, exterior railings, benches and loading docks
  • Hospitals and walk-in clinics
  • Airports
  • Government buildings
  • Shopping malls
  • Playgrounds, parks and common areas

The pressurized systems in EverLine Coatings’ line painting machines are uniquely applicable and effective for disinfecting purposes. Disinfectants are turned into a pressurized mist that can be applied to kill the COVID-19 virus on all types of surfaces.

EverLine has locations in Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Ottawa, Toronto, Vancouver, Winnipeg, Sudbury/North Bay, Kitchener/Guelph, Durham Region/Peterborough, and Scarborough.
