Painting with Pride

In celebration of Pride month in June, 108 bollards in Covent Garden’s Floral Street were painted in a vibrant multicoloured scheme. The task was undertaken in just a week, by decorators Cronin & Millward, based in Gillingham, Kent. The specification called for a quick-drying, water-based paint. With this in mind, One Can Matt by Bradite was selected. It is quick-drying and touch dry in 30 minutes making it re-coatable in just one hour. One Can is available in both eggshell and matt finishes and can be tinted in a full range of BS, RAL and NCS colours. Company Director of Cronin & Millward, Paul Cronin explained that the location created extra logistical planning, as Floral Street is rather narrow and is home to the stage door of the Royal Opera House, amongst several popular shops and residences. He commented: “This was challenging with working around the public safely and with a deadline of June the 1st. It was a tall order but thanks to the help of our team we got there in the end”. Paul said that Bradite’s One Can “went on very nicely” and has now put in a bid to re-paint the bollards when the time comes, about six months from now.
