Swimming Pool Paint Specification At Legoland Windsor

One of the prestigious projects in Promain‘s portfolio is the renovation of the splash zone at the award winning Legoland hotel in Windsor back in 2014. Promain had contact by Orientrose Contracts Ltd.

The Contractor

Originally, the pool area was designed by waterparks and leisure pool designers Neuman Aqua Ltd. Neuman Aqua’s vision consisted of the design, supply and installation of the water treatment and filtration system. In addition, the construction of the pool structures to fit in with the hotel, as they require a pirate ship theme. In addition, due to the specific requirements of the project and the client’s design team, Neuman Aqua coordinated and installed a range of themed interactive water features from a variety of suppliers in Europe and North America.

In addition, they have an in depth understanding of the requirements for clients in commercial, professional and industrial sectors.

Swimming Pool Walls

Promain’s technical team suggested the use of Bedec’s MSP (Multi Surface Paint) due to it’s availability in small tins and it’s vast range of stock colours. Once the touch up had fully dried, a clear topcoat was specified. They require this to fully protect the artwork from the chlorinated water.

Promain recommended a topcoat of Rust-Oleum Pegagraff Hydro Rust-Oleum Pegagraff Hydro is a clear, water based, abrasion and solvent resistant anti-graffiti varnish. Its resistance to solvent means the walls could be easily cleaned quickly and efficiently with the use of standard detergents.  Pegagraff Hydro is a two-component swimming pool paint, with a satin gloss finish.
