Waterloo makes colourful investment

waterloo-paint-shop

UK: With architects and specifiers demanding bolder colours, air terminal device manufacturer Waterloo Air Products has invested around £140,000 in its paint shop.

The paint shop investment includes a new energy-efficient drying oven, auto-spraying equipment, a waste recovery system and a manual booth for short-run orders. It is intended to provide customers with a faster turnaround on standard colours, as well as greater flexibility for more unusual colours. It is part of a wider investment by Waterloo to support customers, with additional warehousing and more space on the factory floor for increased capacity.

“We’re seeing a move towards bolder colours as architects and specifiers grasp the potential to make grilles and diffusers part of the overall building design,” commented Waterloo operations director John Tiernan.

“Architects and specifiers have projects which range across several sectors, so this investment reinforces our commitment to making sure that our air terminal devices can not only meet air flow requirements, but also slot into the design of any building,” he added.

The new spraying facility increases Waterloo’s effectiveness in offering its broad range of colours, shades and textures to meet customers’ requirements. 

A special filtering system is said to ensure that every paint finish is perfect, however complex the design. The investment is also said to improve waste reduction and energy efficiency. 

“Modern building design specifications increasingly look for proof of sustainable manufacture and the latest upgrades support our work in meeting these requirements,” said John Tiernan.
