Woburn Forest Bedfordshire
This high profile project would need to partner with outstanding suppliers and professionals to deliver a stunning venue. Blackburn-based AkzoNobel would feature very heavily in the final phase of the project. All of the West Port timber windows and doors provided to the site were to be painted in a specific brown, enabling the windows to blend into the building and surrounding area. No easy task and the choice of coatings would be crucial.
Maryport-based West Port Timber Window and Door Technology were awarded the contract by the main contractor ISG to provide the new holiday Village with 4,000 timber windows and 2000 doors. West Port needed the assistance of AkzoNobel to help them fulfil the high demands of the project.
The coatings solution for this project rested on the expertise of AkzoNobel in supplying two of their hugely popular products which would meet this specification perfectly.
Sikkens Cetol WP 560 from AkzoNobel is a waterborne, translucent base stain ideal for wooden windows and doors that are made of hardwood for either the interior or the exterior. It provides deep penetration, is wood moisture regulating and offers a high quality colour outline. It also has good UV protection and is water thinnable, which means equipment can be cleaned easily.
The second product from AkzoNobel was their popular Sikkens Rubbol WF 378 fully factory finished system.
A waterborne coating that is an opaque satin gloss mid and finish coat for wooden constructions that have either an exterior or interior finish. Sikkens Rubbol WF 378 offers good levelling and has great weather resistance. It is ideal for spraying onto windows and doors and is also water thinnable enabling equipment to be cleaned with ease.
