Tor Coatings - the complete solution for Housing Associations

When you’re looking for protective coatings for roofs, walls and floors you can depend on us.

For more than forty years, we've been supplying high performing coating systems that boast an unparalleled track record for Housing Associations.

As a UK market leader in liquid roofing, balcony and flame retardant coatings, we’ve worked with housing association premises of all sizes to deliver long-lasting performance with low odour installations designed to keep tenant disruptions to an absolute minimum.

At Tor Coatings, we manufacture the only range of communal area fire protection coatings with third party accreditation under the Certifire scheme, offering our clients complete peace of mind. The range has been developed to withstand extremely high levels of heat and hold back the spread of flames in communal spaces, stairwells and fire escapes, limiting damage to the building and giving tenants the time to evacuate safely.

Watertight

Peace of mind comes as standard for Housing Associations.

At Tor Coatings, we don’t simply manufacture and market products: we provide clients with a complete service, where you’ll receive the highest level of technical service, support and back-up right through to the delivery of the finished project. From site surveys and testing, to bespoke specifications and CAD models, we offer you complete peace of mind – all at no additional cost.
