Why is spraying the best painting option on shop fronts?
In the UK metalwork has become a popular replacement to the original wooden shop fronts. There was a tendency to hand brush paint when decorating.
Brush painting can leave marks in the paintwork and also cause the paint coating to fail faster. This has changed over the past twenty years with the introduction of spray units that achieve a superior finish.
Our shopfront framework recoating service is available throughout the UK.
Vanda Coatings provide a cost-effective alternative to the complete replacement of existing metal shop fronts.
Shop Front Substrates
The main shop front that Vanda Coatings specialists work on are:
- PPC- Previously Powder Coated Shopfronts
- Bare Aluminium
- Hand painted shop fronts
- Stainless Steel
Previously powder coated shop fronts are an ideal surface to recoat.
If there are signs of damage or corrosion, further treatment may be required which we can carry out before re-spraying.
Bare Aluminium, Anodized & Stainless Steel Shop Fronts require etch priming prior to spraying so that the paint adheres to the substrate.
If the bare aluminium surface is not treated before painting, the paint will peel within weeks of application, so our teams at Vanda Coatings take great care in this part of preparation before recoating.
Previously hand painted shop fronts typically show up brush marks throughout the finish. To achieve a new powder coated look, the existing hand painted finish will have to be sanded and stripped back before the surface is re-sprayed.
uPVC Shopfronts- Although these aren’t fitted into commercial units as often as the other substrates, they do exist and we can carry out the spraying to the
Architectural metal in retail outlets is not normally just restricted to shop front framework and we are happy to re-spray any other features.
Paint For Shop Fronts
The paint system used by our shop front spraying specialists on re-coating projects is a two-part epoxy polyurethane.
This paint is extremely durable and hard wearing and offers a minimum of five years guarantee. It also comes in a full range of BS and RAL colours, so original coatings can be matched, or new ones can be chosen.
Our onsite shop front spraying teams have been trained up to the highest standards using the latest spray painting techniques (including electrostatic painting).
The paint is suitable for coating projects on:
- High Street Stores
- Shopping Centres
Furthermore, all our employees have been certified and are continually tested in the safe use of mobile towers and MEWPs (Mobile Elevated Working Platforms). Our sprayers also carry CSCS cards.
