The Roger Peel Sports Centre provides the main sport facilities for some 920 pupils at the co-educational day and boarding school near Huntington. The large multi-purpose sports hall includes a well equipped gymnasium, a weights room, two squash courts and indoor changing facilities, as well as a designated PE classroom used for teaching A-level Sports Studies. First opened in 1992, the building was starting to look tired and dowdy, so the school called upon Dulux Trade to provide a bright, energising and durable new look.
A Dulux Trade colour consultant recommended a selection of colour schemes to give the sports hall a real boost. The colour choices needed to work with the school colours of purple, white and black and an array of vibrant lilacs, purples, blues and greens were combined throughout the facilities.
To ensure long lasting results, Dulux Trade contract partners, R Carter & Sons used Dulux Trade Quick Drying Eggshell throughout, as the product offers dramatically enhanced stain resistance and exceptional durability, making it the best performing water-based mid-sheen finish on the market.
Colin Palmer, Maintenance Manager at Kimbolton School, was delighted with the results. He said: “We wanted to really revitalise the facilities and the new colour schemes look fantastic. By using Diamond Eggshell we’ve also been able to achieve a highly durable mid-sheen finish using a water-based paint – meaning we didn’t have to worry about unwanted fumes and the associated health and safety concerns. We’ve also been able to extend our maintenance cycles, so it’s really been win win all round.”
Ideal for high traffic areas such a school buildings and facilities, Diamond Eggshell also offers excellent opacity meaning the product goes further, as well as lasting longer. Water-based, Diamond Eggshell is a highly durable option for broad walls that already complies with 2010 VOC legislation (EU directive 2004/42/EC) making it a credible alternative to solvent-based eggshells. The product is available in the full Dulux Trade range of over 10,000 colours.
