Low energy house incorporating open air design specifies Crown Trade

  • 15 Sep 2014

The company’s Scrubbable Matt Emulsion has been used throughout the building, producing a durable, stain resistant, contemporary matt finish with excellent aesthetic qualities that does not require regular maintenance.

Wikihouse 4.0 is being erected just outside The Building Centre in preparation for the London Design Festival 2014 and aims to introduce open-air design into the built environment.

Available in Scrubbable Matt, Crown Trade Clean Extreme can also be supplied in Acrylic Eggshell to provide an ideal solution for use on areas subject to condensation and steam.

The advantages of using Clean Extreme on walls and ceilings can be viewed on Crown Trade’s ‘Right Paint for the Job’ video on the company’s YouTube channel.

Crown Paints’ Specification Services is enabling Wikihouse to reduce its carbon footprint, with the company’s Earthbalance programme set up to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 10 percent by 2015 and by 25 percent by 2020.

Earthbalance encourages major businesses and operators to minimise their energy use, re-use or recycle waste, as well as use best practice methodology in accordance with PAS2050.
