Street furniture along a stretch of the South Wales coast is being given a new lease of life – and protected for the long term against the elements – with Crown Trade Protective Coatings’ Metal Gloss system. Steel railings, lamp posts, benches and other street items along a three mile promenade at Aberavon are undergoing a rolling programme of restoration with the high performance system.
Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council first contacted Crown Paints when the stretch started to look weathered after being installed more than seven years ago. As a result the Crown Trade Metal Gloss system was specified, to deliver maximum protection and highly attractive looks in-keeping with the area’s position as a major visitor attraction.
Gary Havard, Senior Building Surveyor at Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council, said: “The paint system is working extremely well, it’s a quality gloss that’s offering a very high specification finish. “We’ve had some bad winters and the surfaces are exposed to a harsh marine environment but they’re standing the test of time.”
