This coating system helps architects, building managers and surveyors to comply with Section B2 of the Building Regulations and also to fulfil their obligations under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order (RRFSO).
The topcoat is an anti-graffiti finish which offers superior levels of protection against serious abuse by allowing long-term, effective graffiti removal when used in conjunction with the Tor graffiti removal systems.
