Crown donates bench to celebrate first anniversary of housing scheme

  • 27 Apr 2017

Crown Paints Specification Services has donated a bench made from recycled paint containers to celebrate the first year of a safety partnership with Derby Homes and Bell Group.

A team from Bell Group are currently painting more than 200 Derby Homes’ properties across the East Midlands’ city with the flame retardant coating, Crown Trade Timonox Vinyl Matt, under a five-year contract. The contract is the second term of works between Crown Paints, Derby Homes and Bell Group.

Derby Homes received the recycled bench at their headquarters in the city to mark the first year of the works.

Peter Howell, Senior Surveyor at Derby Homes said the bench is a fitting way to mark the important safety works being carried out in the community under this project.

“Fire prevention is an important part of our work and using the Crown Trade Timonox system on the communal stairways helps us meet our duty of care requirements and at the same time achieve a durable finish for these busy areas,” he added.

Crown Trade Timonox can slow down the spread of flames and buy precious time for buildings to be evacuated. The system can also help bring premises up to the required safety standards of relevant legislation including the Regulatory Reform Order and the Fire Act.

“Crown Trade Timonox was used on the communal stairways to help us meet our duty of care requirements. Providing the existing coatings are sound, it can restore a surface to the Class 0 rating required by the legislation and can help by slowing down and limiting the spread of flames throughout a building,” Sharon Smith, Crown Paints Brand Manager explained.

Crown Paints Specification Services and Bell Group have supported the partnership with Derby Homes with a range of activities, including involvement with its charity golf day, which was organised to support Derby Homes 2017 charity partner, Macmillan Cancer Support.
