Our shop front spraying provides a finish which is equally beautiful and long lasting. Due to the sophistication of the paint systems we utilise, our paint can be applied to a variety of materials and substrates. These include, but are not limited to, aluminium, polyester, powder coatings, galvanised metals, plastics, UPVC, fibreglass, window glass and even wood.
Additionally, our shop front spraying service includes these additional features:
- The reparation of dents and scratches
- The production of a perfectly smooth finish across the shop front
- An incredibly hard wearing finish that offers exceptional longevity
- A speedy application
We understand that many companies want their shop front to be an extension of their brand. Therefore, compromise on colour is simply unacceptable. We wish to assure you that we are able to provide an exact match on your desired colour. This is achieved through our dedicated paint matching service.
Our shop front spraying service involves the cordoning off of the area which will be worked on- ensuring safe access to the working area is established. Preparation is essential to producing the optimum surface finish- therefore masking tape is attached to surrounding areas to prevent the occurrence of overspray. Following this the substrate which is to be sprayed is heavily degreased, before being sanded and filed in order to ensure the optimum level of adhesion for the coating is provided.
All of the teams which King Specialist Coatings employ have years of experience both in the repair and respray of shop fronts in difficult areas of retail parks and high streets- providing an excellent finish each and every time.
We are experts in shop front spraying onsite and offer an aluminium framework recoating service throughout the UK. King Specialist Coatings Coatings provide a cost effective alternative to the complete replacement of existing metal shop fronts. We work closely with shop fitters, architects, construction companies, shop owners and managers of high street chains to help achieve a high quality finish completed in a tight turn around. Our company understand the need for retailers to trade during their rebranding and we will work out of hours throughout the week to ensure that disruption is kept to a minimum.
Painting Previously Powder Coated, Bare Aluminium and Hand Painted Shop Fronts
Previously powder coated shopfronts 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. Aluminium shopfronts need to be etched 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 King Specialist Coatings Coatings take great care in their preparation before recoating. Previously hand painted shopfronts 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.
Architectural metal in retail outlets is not just restricted to shopfront framework and we are happy to re-spray any other features. Because King Specialist Coatings have extensive experience of working on many shopfront projects, we normally carry out the spraying of roller shutters and associated guides and hoods as well. We also provide a full re-spraying service of all curtain walling section framing in retail and office environments to give outlets a new lease of life.
We are able to spray any type and size of shop front :
- Aluminium Shop Fronts – Including, previously powder coated, bare or previously hand painted
- Timber Shop Fronts – Including, previously hand painted or varnished
- UPVC Shop Fronts
- Stainless Steel Shop Fronts
Shopfront Painting Techniques
The paint system used by our shop front sprayers on recoating 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). 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.
Working in Shopping Centres
King Specialist Coatings Coatings have immense experience in working in shopping centres throughout the UK. We liaise with shopping centre management and the client to ensure that all necessary arrangements are in place prior to shopfront spraying. Furthermore, we have public and employer liability insurance that allows us to carry out work.
Very often major companies embark on a refit rollout in order to reimage all shops throughout the UK or in a specific region. King Specialist Coatings Coatings can offer services to the end user or through main contractors who oversee the project. We have recently undertaken a rollout programme over twelve weeks for the Co-operative food group where we sprayed shopfronts including automatic doors, signage fascias and roller shutters from their old blue branded colours to their new fresh green and white colours. The programme involved spraying shopfronts on up to six sites a week in the North of England over a twelve week period. Our teams are fast and efficient and take pride in their work, always ensuring the result is over and above the highest standard.
