What The Client Wanted
Our client, the current Premier League leaders, Leicester City FC required our services following the removal of some signage at the King Power Stadium.
They needed us to make good various cladding panels with fixing holes. However, it was imperative that the works were completed within a tight timeframe due to the club having home fixtures within the coming days of when works commenced.
What We Did
Cladding Panel Repairs – All of the fixing holes as requested were filled using a two part filling system. Once the layers of filler had fully cured, the repairs were sanded back using a very fine grain of abrasive paper to ensure a smooth finish.
Once the preparations had been completed, the areas were primed using an anti-corrosive primer and then the top coat was applied to finish.
Colour matching services – With bold colours such as blue’s and red’s the pigmentation in the paint / substrate can often be broken down by Ultra Violet rays. This leaves a ‘chalk’ or ‘bleaching’ effect, this causes particular problems when attending site and trying to blend in our works to the existing elevation.
Our operatives had to ‘tint’ the paint whilst on site to ensure that the panels did not stand out from the rest.
The Client’s Feedback
“As a team in the Premier League, image is everything. The cladding repairs and on site spraying completed by CJ Coatings were exactly what we needed. The spraying technicians conducted themselves in an extremely professional manner and the final result is exactly what we had expected.”
