Johnstone's paints used for new community college
Acrylic Durable Matt paint
Johnstone’s has supplied more than 3,000 litres of its Acrylic Durable Matt paint to the new Hyde Community College.
Opened in January, the school forms part of Tameside’s Building Schools for the Future programme and houses over 1,000 students.
The school has a number of open atrium areas, which could only be accessed with scissor lifts.
This meant that only the members of the sixteen-strong decorating team with the necessary training and expertise could work in these areas.
The school’s walls also feature an array of famous quotes designed to inspire the students, which were painted by skilled decorators using graphics, projections and stencils.
A durable and hardwearing paint was specified for the project to combat the high traffic nature of a school.
Director at Ambrose Ellis, Mike Ambrose, said: “Johnstone’s products were specified primarily because of their durability.
“With schools, we have to ensure that the finish stands up to a bit of a pummelling and we’re delighted that we’ve achieved an unbelievable finish on this project.
“Johnstone’s is second to none in the industry, especially when it comes to commercial work of this nature.”
Johnstone’s Professional Undercoat offers decorators excellent opacity and obliteration qualities, plus have now improved the drying time and whiteness of the paint, as well as making it even easier to apply.
