Crown Paints will be at PfH Live to explain how it can help professionals meet the modern challenges facing the social housing sector.
PfH Live is part of the CIH Conference, taking place at Manchester Central between the 28th and 30th June. Crown Paints will be on stand p14 at the event.
The paint manufacturer will be on hand to promote its industry-leading colour expertise, sustainable solutions and specialist coatings, as well as the support it provides through its Crown Paints Colour Service Team.
Debbie Orr, Crown Paints’ Marketing Manager for Trade brands, discussed how Crown Paints’ can support clients from design through to delivery. She said:
“Accessed through Crown Paints’ Specification Services, initiatives include the creation of exterior and interior schemes, completed using computer aided design, and for certain projects the Colour Services Team can provide face-to-face consultation.
Furthermore, the focus is not just on aesthetics, with the service able to advise on specialist areas including colour and dementia, the Equality Act – and provide insight into the effect different shades can have on emotions.”
Crown Paints will also discuss the benefits of its Sustainable Smart Maintenance programme, which promotes correct product specification to ensure the maximum lifetime of the product is achieved.
The Sustainable Smart Maintenance programme sees the Specification Services team carry out analysis to find the the appropriate paints for individual environments.
Crown Trade Timonox, a flame retardant coating which slows the spread of fire, will also be featured at the PfH event.
The system can help social housing providers bring premises up to the required safety standards, adhering to the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order (RRFSO) in England and Wales and The Fire (Scotland) Act 2005.
Debbie Orr added: “A build-up of conventional decorative paint finishes to wall and ceiling surfaces can potentially be hazardous in terms of contributing to flame spread in the event of a fire.
“Of significance for most housing providers is the fact that the Crown Trade system can be applied over multiple layers of conventional paint – thereby upgrading the fire safety of existing housing stock and at the same time decorating and protecting interior walls and ceilings.
“At PfH Live we will be explaining how we’ve improved the Crown Trade Timonox upgrade system, which is used in properties with more 10 coats of old paint, to achieve the Class 0 status required by law.”
The Crown Trade Timonox system now comprises only one coat of Timonox Upgrade Basecoat, followed by two coats of Timonox Emulsion topcoat to offer protection against the rapid spread of flames.
