Teknos coatings have been used by Paling Joiners to protect the external joinery, including windows and door sets, of a number of RNLI boat stations including St Davids, Swanage, Scarborough, Llandudno and Bridlington.
Accoya wood, a modified timber in which a process called acetylation enables it to resist rot and defy the elements, was selected as the material of choice for the Bridlington project. It offers a 50-year above ground and 25-year in ground/freshwater guarantee.
The RNLI boat station in Swanage was protected with one coat of Teknos ANTISTAIN Primer in ‘External White’, a waterborne industrial primer designed for exterior use on timber, followed by two coats of AQUATOP topcoat in ‘Clean White’, a fast-drying topcoat. For the other RNLI boat station projects, including Bridlington Paling Joiners used AQUAPRIMER 2900, a waterborne combi primer, followed by AQUATOP 2600, a waterborne top coat.
