High Flying Zinsser
More than 3,000 litres of Zinsser AllCoat has been used to date to transform the ceilings across Gatwick Airport’s North and South terminals, as part of an ongoing refurbishment project.
With the airport open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and more than 40 million passengers passing through every year, a paint product with next to no disruptive preparation work was required.
Following a full inspection of the site by Zinsser’s specification team, AllCoat was identified as providing the right solution, thanks to its sprayability, guaranteed one coat coverage and virtually odour free application.
Supplied by Brewers Decorating Centres, the Zinsser AllCoat product allowed Alpine Decorating Limited, working on behalf of contractors Balfour Beatty, to complete the project leaving a clean and professional finish while eliminating the potential for disruption to passengers.
Richard Turner of Crawley-based Alpine Decorating said: “The nature of the environment we are working in meant we needed a product which would allow us to work quickly but to a very high standard, ensuring the specific terminal areas could operate as per normal.
“We used Zinsser’s commercial specification service which meant we were given expert advice as to which products would be most suitable for the job, which saved us a lot of time, labour and cost and ensured we could deliver the best possible result.
“One of the main benefits of AllCoat is its usability – it is perfect for airless spray application and is very quick drying which is so important when working in a commercial space.”
AllCoat will adhere to almost any surface without sanding and will cover and seal most paintable surfaces.
