CASE STUDY: Royston Glass use AVKO Paint for Glass in prestigious Torquay development

Royston Glass is a family business with over 20 years’ experience in specialist glass processing and installation.

They have recently been working on a project together with Symphony Kitchens, Havard Tisdale & Mansell Construction Services Ltd at the prestigious Abbey Sands Development in Torquay, which won the award for the Best Mixed-use Development (UK) at the UK Property Awards.

Royston Glass was chosen to install painted splashbacks in the kitchens of 20+ apartments in this stunning building. Our AVKOTE GP paint was used to spray the splashbacks. A combination of the colour Snowdrop (Royston Glass colour) and our sparkle effect paint were used to add the perfect finishing touch to the modern kitchen space.

What can I say excellent customer service and the best paint there is I've used avko paint for a number of years the opacity and adhesion of there paint is unbelievable. I sprayed my own kitchen cupboard doors well over 10yrs ago and can honestly say they still look as good as the day they were done the bottom doors have had a dog jumping up them scratching them with its claws which hasn't left any scratches there is the odd dent but the paint hasn't broken or chipped off. I've sprayed thousands of upvc windows and doors using the recommended procedure and have never had any issues with fading or poor adhesion. I really can't recommend there paint products enough also the technical support is second to none .keep up the excellent work avko and thank you for such a great product you really are clever people .
