Hopkins County Jail Spearheads New Concrete Polishing Training Program For Inmates Using WerkMaster Raptor XT Concrete Grinder Floor Polisher

September 05, 2014 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
September 5, 2014 - Vancouver, BC - Hopkins County Jail, near Madisonville, Kentucky turns a need into an opportunity. Looking for a solution to replace tiles throughout the facility, head jailer Joe Blue decided polished concrete was a viable option and began looking at concrete floor grinders and polishers. He recognized this was an excellent opportunity for the inmates to develop a skill they could use when they have left prison.

After reviewing a number of planetary designed machines, Joe recognized the features and benefits of WerkMaster's Octi-Disc Technology best suited their needs. He chose the Raptor XT Concrete Grinder Polisher because of its unique versatility and features.

Inmates in the jail's Community Service program are now benefiting from training in the use of the WerkMaster Raptor XT under the supervision of Sgt. Billy Thomas and Deputy Donnie Barnett who had attended WerkMaster's Certified Concrete Polishing Training School at Braxton-Bragg in Knoxville, Tennessee.

Joe recognized the Raptor XT would provide the inmates with a distinct advantage over their competitors running planetary machines. Edging is labor intensive, power is always a pain point, mobilization can be challenging and most polished concrete floors and toppings require burnishing. The fact the Raptor XT is 7 machines in 1, edges to within an 1/8" of the wall, while being the only 5 hp variable frequency machine that can run simultaneously on 240 volt single phase, 240 volt three phase or 110 volt and capable of grinding, polishing, edging, burnishing and buffing concrete, terrazzo and stone floors as well as sanding hardwood floors gives any contractor an advantage.
