Westwood Security Announce UK’s First Chrome Finish Roller Shutter

11th December, 2008

roller shutters news articlesWestwood Security Shutters Ltd have added a revolutionary new Chrome Effect Finish to their range of Roller Shutter products. After successful trials, Westwood have now rolled out the new finish which can be applied both to Aluminium and Steel and to both curved and flat surfaces.

This is an alternative to the standard powder coated finish or wet paint and it offers customer a unique almost mirror-like individual finish.

The Chrome and Gold finishes are expected to become most popular. However, Westwood are also able to add colour tints including all 7 pigments Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Violet and Black.

The process is achieved by use of a special formulated base coat offering maximum adhesion. A special water based colour metal spray with a fine mist of real silver deposits creates a mirror reflection over the entire based coat surface and finally the clear top coat is applied over the entire reflective surface to create the required final effect.

The whole process is more environmentally friendly than conventional chrome plating and also does not contain any “Hexavalent Chromium” compounds.

After many tests and trials the finish shows great resistance humidity, salt spray and abrasion. And the distinctness of the image is almost mirror like and will be of great desire in the marketplace, generally offering a tougher finish than the conventional powder coated finishes which are prone to scratches in transit.

Westwood Security Shutters Ltd Sales Director Matt Sands says “There is a small premium to pay for this option, but for many clients the cost will be greatly outweighed by the amazing appeal of the finished product. It wont be for everybody, but for clients with products that are for the image conscious consumer, clients that may need to stand out from the crowd, it will be an ideal solution.”

Mr Sands continued to say that: Westwood “have had a number of enquires from clients over the years and when a forward thinking European paint company approached us and asked if there was potentially a market for this new development we realised that technology had caught up with our customers requirements and demands!”.
