Crown Trade Clean Extreme prescribed for Salford Primary Care Trust Unit
A North-West based decorating company has undertaken its largest ever application of Crown Trade Clean Extreme Scrubbable Matt, at a Primary Care Trust Unit, located in the heart of Salford, 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. Crown Trade Clean Extreme Scrubbable Matt was used throughout the building and the paint was supplied by Manchester Crown Decorating Centre.
The health centre is the second successful job for C&D Painting & Decorating Contractors at the £50m Radclyffe Park development in Salford. 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 is the owner of C&D Painting & Decorating Contractors, a business he set up five years ago after 20 years in the decorating profession. Colin worked with a three man team on Ordsall Health Centre, and was impressed with the performance of Clean Extreme Scrubbable Matt’s ease of application and durability.
Colin said: “We have worked with the product for a number of years, but not on this scale. It went on the walls really well, and we will definitely use it again.
“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.
“The building has been carefully designed and built to create a sealed environment for hygiene purposes – and the choice of Crown Trade Clean Extreme Scrubbable Matt supports that approach.”
Crown Trade Brand Manager Debbie Orr, said: “Professional decorators looking for the right paint for the job in healthcare environments can rely Clean Extreme Scrubbable Matt.
“In tests the paint 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.”
