Our structural realignment equipment, a Celette Designated Frame Machine, is tailor-made for uncovering minor and major frame damage. The designated frame machine utilizes point-to-point “jigs”, which fit into any and all factory specified locations on a vehicle’s undercarriage. Misaligned points and jigs indicate that real structural damage has occurred during the accident. The Celette is particularly effective for perfecting the alignment when replacing structural parts with new components.
Janssen’s is well suited for repairing severe body damage with our Chief Five Post Classic, Drive-on Frame Machine. Damaged cars are driven directly onto the Five-Post Classic that provides the power to straighten out structural components such as unibodies and frames. This piece of equipment is indispensable for body pulling and realignment, and is powerful enough to repair large pickup trucks.
Janssen’s also makes use of a Steck Universal Mechanical Measuring System. The Steck works the same way as the Celette described above. However, with the Steck, everything is adjustable. This device is mainly used for proper measurement of underbody structural realignment.
Our shop is equipped with three Mig Welders. All major manufacturers recommend the Mig Welder to come the closest to factory spot welds as possible. As electric wire feed welders, the Mig generates a precision seam of uncompromised durability.
We have two spray booths; each of which is temperature controlled and include a bake cycle able to bake paint at 155 degrees, the recommended temperature by paint manufacturers for the best paint quality.
On site, there are also two separate paint systems; one is Glazerit, the other Diamont. Both Glazeruit and Diamont are now owned by BASF, a leader in paints and chemicals. Glazerit was, and still is, a European company with its paints mixed in Germany and used by manufacturers like BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen, Volvo, Porsche, and Audi. Diamont was a Canadian brand paint originally, it is used by the one of the worlds largest manufacturers, General Motors. Both paint systems are designed to precisely mix our own colors thru computerized formulas and scales. This process enables us to see what exactly what toners go into the formula in order to create the best paint match possible, every time.
Our shop is rounded out with the latest state-of-the-art computerized systems and a quiet, comfortable office waiting area.
