Crown Trade Clean Extreme Scrubbable Matt
Crown Trade Clean Extreme Scrubbable Matt has been applied across a Primary Care Trust Unit, located in the heart ofSalford, Greater Manchester.
The construction of the new £1.4 million Ordsall Health Centre by Manchester-based Russells Construction brings together a range of patient services including doctors, dentists, speech and language therapy, podiatry and community mental health services.
Almost 900 litres of paint have been applied across the new unit by Prestwich-based C&D Painting & Decorating Contractors, who worked on site under a nine week programme of works.
The health centre is the second successful job for C&D Painting & Decorating Contractors at the £50mRadclyffeParkdevelopment inSalford. Earlier this year they completed decorating works on 79 new affordable homes in the mixed-use scheme which also comprises retail and leisure facilities. Russells Construction were appointed main contractor for the scheme by regeneration developer, LPC Living, which sits at the heart of a £150m regeneration programme of the area.
Colin Hill, owner of C&D Painting & Decorating Contractors, said: “The building has been carefully designed and built to create a sealed environment, capable of supporting infection control and achieving stringent hygiene performance.
“The specification of Crown Trade Clean Extreme has supported that design.
“The end result looks clean and crisp, with two shades of off white applied. These were colour matched to work in with the entire design of the building, blending in well with the floors and doors, and the end result looks superb.”
Crown Trade Brand Manager Debbie Orr, said: “This major project showcases Crown Trade’s strength in providing the right paint for the job in healthcare environments, and in particular the value of our Clean Extreme Scrubbable Matt.
“In tests the system has achieved a Class 1 ‘scrub’ rating when tested according to ISO 11998. Less than 5 microns of film thickness were lost after painted panels were subjected to 200 cycles on a scrub test machine, which represents a 400 per cent increase in resistance to wet scrubbing compared to conventional vinyl matt.
“This level of performance and durability ensures Clean Extreme Scrubbable Matt is compatible with NHS cleaning regimes and also extends maintenance cycles.
