Flame-retardant paint used by Colour Service team in vibrant makeover

  • 7 Jul 2015

After partnering with social housing providers, Incommunities Group, Crown Paints has used its specification and colour expertise to improve Kennedy House’s communal areas.

The high rise block, which is located in Keighley, West Yorkshire, was lacking a bright and welcoming environment.

By using its Crown Trade Timonox paint, Crown Paints was able to cater to the area, giving it a vibrant refurbishment whilst adhering to the building’s stringent safety requirements.

Flame-retardant paint

Crown Trade Timonox has been designed with flame-retardant properties: when applied on the walls and ceilings of areas that make up part of a fire escape route, it can provide additional time for the safe evacuation of the building.

The paint does this by releasing non-combustible gases to limit the amount of oxygen around the flames. It also incorporates an innovative formulation that provides a barrier to the flammable paint layer.

Colour Service from Crown Paints

As well as being safety-conscious, Crown Paints’ Timonox range is able to cater for any interior, with a wide range of colour choices available.

With Crown Paints’ Colour Service team on hand, the residents of Kennedy House were able to choose the right look for their building

The company’s Colour Service – which can be accessed via its Specification Services team – is also able to offer expert assistance on site.

These were important factors in the project for Incommunities.

Using bespoke colour cards and a colour library, the Colour Service gave Kennedy House’s residents with the chance to create individual looks for their shared spaces.

The specialists can also provide computer aided design images of what the space will look like.

Face-to-face consultation is also available, depending on the scale of the project.

Feedback from Kennedy House

As one of Britain’s largest social housing providers, Incommunities owns and manages over 23,000 properties in Bradford District and both West and South Yorkshire.

The company wanted to give Kennedy House a smarter look, as its interior had been neglected for a number of years.

After working with Crown Paints on the project, both Incommunities and Kennedy Houses’s residents praised the colour service.

“All the tenants had the chance to have their say,” comments Val Barker, a resident of Kennedy House for 50 years. “It was good to see the pictures of how it could look so we could decide properly.”
