New Spray Booth in the Pipeline 

Exterior products should be coated to give complete weather protection to the wood. We have a designated spray booth for this and in 2016 we received planning permission to develop another area on site to create another spray booth to meet customer demand. We use Teknos paint, as well as other quality paint manufacturers.
