Crown Trade products are providing the University of East London with a trusted route to transform student accommodation for the new academic year under a comprehensive redecoration programme.

Crown Trade Steracryl Mould Inhibiting Matt Paint, Crown Trade Clean Extreme Scrubbable Matt and Crown Trade Fastflow Quick Dry Gloss are all being applied as part of the refurbishment of 57 dormitories and associated kitchen areas at the university’s Docklands Campus.

Consisting of an individual bedroom and private bathroom, the dormitories - part of the Redbridge Student Accommodation - are in the transition from term time to summer school programmes.

Patrick Bishop, supervisor of the Redbridge Student Accommodation, said: “This is the best time for us to redecorate the rooms.

“We have a three to four-week period from when the full-time students move out to when the summer school learners move in, and in that time we need to redecorate all of the rooms.

“We’ve been working with Crown Paints now for four years and their products are being used because we have such a quick turnaround to get the rooms ready and we have to trust what we use.”

Under the programme of works, Crown Trade Clean Extreme Scrubbable Matt is being applied to the kitchen and bedroom areas.

Ideal for spaces that receive a high level of traffic, Crown Trade Clean Extreme is 100 per cent more stain resistant than standard matt vinyl emulsion paint - and can be scrubbed up to 10,000 times.

This means the product will extend the University of East London’s maintenance cycle with the superior, super scrubbable, stain resistant formula allowing for repetitive cleaning.

Steve Terry, from K and S Cabling – who are carrying out the redecoration work – said: “Crown Trade Clean Extreme is the ideal product for dorm rooms.

“The walls get scuffed and marked, but this product does the job to keep them looking good for the long term.”

As well as Crown Trade Clean Extreme, other products selected for the project include Crown Trade Steracryl Mould Inhibiting Matt Paint for the bathroom ceilings, while Crown Trade Fastflow Quick Dry Gloss system is being used on all of the doors in the accommodation block.

Sharon Smith, Crown Paints Trade Brand Manager, said: “This project really reflects the quality and reliability of Crown Trade products.”

“They provide specifiers with a trusted means of transforming student accommodation during the busy summer period.”
