Free Site Survey
Tor Coatings conducted a site survey which involved thoroughly testing the existing substrate to ensure any recommended system was fully compatible. Unipres is in the process of unifying its operations throughout the world under the same brand design and required the Sunderland building to be coated in the corporate colour scheme, with off-white for the main elevations, finished in a cornflower blue for the top and bottom trims. The survey found that since the building was first constructed, it had suffered from rusting, a certain amount of chalking on the surface and general deterioration which had to be removed prior to any recoating.
Unicover Ultra S was specified in a semi gloss finish to fulfil the decorative requirements of the project. The system is a high performance semi gloss coating that provides a long life, colour fast, extremely durable and easily cleaned permanent system for external surfaces.
FWR were contracted to complete this project, with site support from the Tor sales and technical service team. With an excess of 12,000m2 of cladding to coat, a spray application was used for speed and accuracy.
In addition to the comfort of having a 25 year BBA accreditation, the system provides flexible, durable, long-lasting protection for up to 15 years before first full maintenance. During this period, we will continue to carry out regular scheduled inspections to ensure that the performance is delivered for the client.continue to carry out regular scheduled inspections to ensure that the performance is delivered for the client.
