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.”
Cummings & Pattison (North East) has applied over 250L of Johnstone’s Professional Gloss at the new Sustainable Enterprise Strategies (SES) Co-op Centre in Sunderland. The new centre has been constructed using adapted shipping containers. Suitable for metal finishes, Johnstone’s Professional Gloss provides a durable, high gloss finish to the exterior of the containers.
PPG Architectural Coatings, manufacturer of leading paint brands Johnstone’s and Leyland, is looking for UK Charities to become their next Charity partner. PPG extensive offer national exposure, including through its 187 Johnstone’s Decorating Centres. The charity must cover the UK and Ireland and be registered in one of these countries. PPG employees will vote to choose the company’s charity partner.
Johnstone’s has given the club shop at Crewe Alexandra Football Club a fresh new look using its Acrylic Durable Matt emulsion in Railwaymen Red – a colour that feature’s on the company’s Team Colours colour card. Acrylic Durable Matt was specified for its ability to provide a tough, durable finish that is resistant to yellowing and condensation. Johnstone’s has sponsored the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy since 2006.

During July and August 2013, Johnstone’s gave decorators the chance to test the application qualities of its Aqua Gloss water-based paint as part of the Aqua Challenge roadshow. Johnstone’s Aqua Gloss overcomes the impacts of legislative changes regarding solvent-based products but still boasts similar application qualities. It has been designed to offer shorter drying times, low odour and reduced yellowing.
A range of paints and finishes from Johnstone’s have been specified for the new, 13,000 capacity Leeds Arena. Johnstone’s washable Acrylic Eggshell and durable Covaplus have been used on plastered walls and stair soffits while the company’s Stormshield Smooth Masonry paint has been used to protect the exposed internal blockwork. Johnstone’s Flortred was applied to the concrete floors to ensure staff and visitor safety.
