Merchant Quarter Retail

Powder-Coating Protection

Problem

The shops and restaurants in the Merchant Quarter retail district of were prone to vandalism and the retail shops were experiencing scratch graffiti on the powder coated aluminium door and window frames as well as the windows.

Solution

GlassProtech was asked to provide a quick and cost-efficient solution to restore the powder coated frames effectively. The cost of removing the frames and getting them re-powder coated was exorbitant so we proposed a vinyl wrap solution. An exact colour match of a high-end exterior vinyl film was sourced and applied to the damaged frames.

Result

For a fraction of the cost of restoring the frames through removal and re-powder coating, the application of a colour matched vinyl over the scratch damaged did a fantastic job of hiding the damage and was quick and cost-efficient to apply.

Description

The architecturally designed Merchant Quarter has numerous commercial premises at ground level. These shops and restaurants are prone to vandalism damage in the form of scratch graffiti, both on glazing and the powder coated door and window frames.

GlassProtech was already providing protection against glass scratch graffiti for all the glazing on these commercial premises, and was the go-to partner for the facilities manager. The issue at hand was to cover up existing scratching and to protect the powder coated aluminium door and window frames.

The cost of removing the frames and getting them re-powder coated was exorbitant so GlassProtech proposed a vinyl wrap solution to hide the etching and protect the frames. An exact colour match of a high-end exterior vinyl film was sourced and applied to the damaged frames.
