Televes, Cwmbran

This building located in Wales was ageing and had started to deteriorate. It required a full re-coating to the external facade to bring the colours back to life and protect the cladding for years to come.

It’s essential to understand the nature of a building in detail when assessing how to treat a façade. Where is it located? What does it store? How does the client need us to operate around their needs?

Thankfully, Televes knew they were in safe hands with Cladding Coatings when we completed an onsite spraying project using our expert systems at their unit just north of Newport, South Wales.

External protection for internal security

This project was completed in September 2019. However, it feels of particular importance in the current climate. Televes distribute electronic equipment to the TV and satellite master antenna industry. The company’s goal is to provide homes, buildings and cities with telecoms infrastructure, which at a time of virtual connection has never felt more valuable.

With stock so highly valued, both in need and cost, protecting the unit’s contents was crucial, and achieved through the right external building repair and refurbishment. Thanks to our years of expertise, Televes knew that our Cladding Coatings team would know exactly which commercial painting system to use. We chose our trusted ten-year Rust-Oleum Noxyde® system, installed across all four metal cladding wall elevations. The perfect choice for metal cladding coating, Noxyde® is an elastomeric coating that’s ideal for onsite spraying.

High-performance systems for industrial locations

Televes’ unit is located on an industrial estate in Cwmbran, Torfaen, placing it close to Newport and the Bristol Channel. This position is excellent for distribution, but presents problems for the façade. Industrial areas and coastal areas are both high-salinity locations, meaning they’re prone to much salt damage. This has a weathering effect on your façade if not properly maintained.

Our experience tackling a building heavily exposed to salt in the atmosphere meant we knew which tried and tested paint system to apply. We prepared and painted the loading doors and windows with 7500 AlkythaneⓇ from Rust-OleumⓇ. The doors are crucial to Televes’ successful supply and operations, so this incredibly effective system with a high-performing corrosion resistant topcoat was the perfect choice. It’s quick application and high-durability suits project manager budgets and timescales too.

Building owners, managers and surveyors need to trust that their building cladding coatings team know which paint systems to use to best service their type of façade and the nature of its content. They were able to take advantage of our unique digital mock up service allowing them to see the new colours and transformation before work even began.

We’re proud to have delivered for Televes, and would be delighted to share how we can do the same for you. Contact our experienced team here at Cladding Coatings for a no-obligation chat about how we can help you today.
