Johnstone’s Smooth Metal Paint: Park Renovation Is Child’s Play

Johnstone’s has recently been indulging in some playtime by supplying its new Johnstones Smooth Metal Paint for the colourful renovation of Reedswood and Willenhall Memorial Parks in Walsall.
Willenhall Memorial Park was created in the early 1920s to commemorate those who died in the Great War. The resulting woodland is now an attractive backdrop to the park’s many facilities, which include a bandstand, bowling green, children’s play area, fishing pool and community pavilion.
With the children’s play areas in both parks in need of a lick of paint, Johnstone’s Smooth Metal Paint was selected by Walsall Council to bring the parks back to life. The new paint has been designed specifically to provide up to five years protection for exterior metal surfaces and the availability of a huge range of tinted colours made it ideal for this job.
Climbing frames, swing sets, slides and roundabouts were all painted in Johnstones Smooth Metal Paint in an array of pinks, greens, purples and reds to help provide children with a space that is safe, interesting and above all else fun.
Offering excellent anti-corrosive properties, whilst maintaining the highest levels of adhesion, Johnstone’s Smooth Metal Paint has been developed to provide practical and high performance solutions for metal protection. Johnstone’s Smooth Metal Paint is formulated to be quick and easy to apply. Johnstone’s Road Marking Paint was also used to mark off spaces in the car park.
Darren Hodgkiss, Infrastructure Maintenance Support Officer for Walsall Council said: “We’re extremely happy with the results we’ve got from using Johnstone’s paint. The revamp of the parks has been received magnificently and that’s down in a large part to the finish we’ve been able to achieve with the Smooth Metal Paint. We’ve also just won a prestigious Green Flag award and that had a lot to do with the work we carried out in the children’s play areas.
“There are plans afoot to renovate and revamp a great number of parks in the area and I’ll be recommending Johnstone’s products to all of our contractors’’.
