Respray: Hurleys, Grand Arcade Shopping Centre.
ORS were asked to refurbish and respray this tired shop front internally and externally at the popular Grand Arcade shopping centre in Wigan. The original shopfront was still in its original blue powdercoated finish, although it had faded quite badly over the years and was in need of a respray. With this being a high end shopping location it was important that the finish was immaculate to compliment the rest of the centre.
The shop front is quite unusual in design, featuring a typical double door set with a shutter and glazed either side, but it extend up with a large glazed section above it. At around 5m tall, we used an electric scissor lift with non-marking tyres to access the higher areas to mask and respray the frames.
This is an example of the finish we’re able to achieve on site using a semi-gloss paint; in our opinion, it rivals an original powercoating straight from a factory. Also, we clean all surfaces adjacent to any areas sprayed including gaskets and the glass to ensure no overspray remains.
And this is what the shop front looked like before we started, quite a difference we think you’ll agree! All of the works were completed outside of the stores opening hours as this is a trading store, and by the time the store opened all masking was removed and cleaned thoroughly.
