Social housing solutions at PfH Live with Crown Paints

  • 23 May 2018

Crown Paints will be addressing key issues of fire safety, colour schemes and maintenance cycles at the upcoming Procurement for Housing (PfH) Live conference.

Taking place from 26 – 28 June, as part of the annual Chartered Institute of Housing event in Manchester, Crown will feature at stand P66, where members of its specification team will be on hand.

They will provide tailored advice to specifiers working in social housing, offering guidance on extending maintenance cycles, creating attractive and inclusive colour schemes and selecting the most effective paint products for both interior and exterior decoration projects.

Visitors to Crown Paints’ stand will be able to find out about the wide range of high-performance paints and specialist coatings, including Crown Trade Timonox, an innovative flame retardant paint system which inhibits the spread of fire and can help housing providers comply to the relevant fire and safety standards.

Alongside improving the appearance of interior walls and ceilings, the combination of one coat of Crown Trade Timonox Upgrade basecoat followed by two coats of Crown Trade Timonox Emulsion topcoat can upgrade surfaces from a class 4 to a class 0 rating.

As the Crown Trade Timonox system can be applied over multiple layers of existing paint, it is perfect for refurbishment projects, offering a cost-effective solution to improving the fire safety standards of existing housing stock.

Crown Paints’ Business Development Manager, Ian Lealand, commented: “Here at Crown Paints, we understand that the social housing sector faces unique challenges and we are committed to ensuring that we can offer specifiers a comprehensive range of solutions, both in terms of our extensive portfolio of high performance paint products and our in-house technical expertise.

“From dealing with budget constraints to achieving compliance with numerous regulations, social housing providers need products that perform as well as they look and we are looking forward to speaking directly with specifiers at the PfH Live event to identify the ways in which Crown Paints can assist them with their next project.”
