The robust nature of Johnstone’s Endura Super Durable Matt has played a leading role in the refurbishment of a post-natal care wing at a London hospital.
The Murray Ward at Whittington Hospital, near Highgate, recently underwent an extensive refurbishment programme, which saw Johnstone’s combination of product and colour options utilised to impressive effect.
Its Endura Super Durable Matt achieves Class 1 of ISO 11998 and Class C of BS7719 at over 10,000 scrubs. It was used throughout the ward to provide an extended maintenance cycle, being up to 50 times more scrubbable than standard vinyl matt emulsion. Tested to meet strict EU Ecolabel requirements, Endura forms part of Johnstone’s Ecological Solutions range and has received an Environmental Product Declaration from BRE Global, the certification arm of the building science centre BRE.
Providing a contemporary matt finish, Endura Super Durable Matt withstands everyday cleaning conditions and is the perfect solution to combat the high traffic faced by The Murray Ward’s corridors.
Pastel and off-white colours were chosen in order to balance the effects of sunshine and sunset on the ward, and were specified from the vast, diverse range of colour tones available from Johnstone’s range.
Alessandro Annunziata, director at Salerno Construction Consulting Engineers, who specified the use of Johnstone’s, said: “When tackling a hospital project like this, sourcing a durable paint is essential and Johnstone’s Endura Super Durable Matt is the most durable matt paint available. For an NHS organisation looking to become more efficient, it will save money during the life-cycle of the project.
“In addition, the colour options offered by Johnstone’s were outstanding and early on in the process allowed us to visualise exactly what the finished project would look like.”
