Project: Resin bound ‘Welcome to Plymouth’ sign
Location: Hoe Historic Park and Gardens, Plymouth
Oltco Plymouth installed a resin bound surface in the contemporary blend, Kernow Granite, as part of a wider project to create a new ‘Welcome to Plymouth’ sign.
The client was looking for an attractive surface to add the finishing touches to a new ‘Welcome to Plymouth’ sign. It was important that the colour of the solution matched the colour of the surrounding stone.
The original sign which had been in place for a number of years had started to fade, therefore a new sign was required. As a result, the new surface also needed to be hard-wearing and low maintenance to ensure that the solution would last for years to come.
The Oltco Plymouth team got straight to work installing Oltco’s premium resin bound solution in a Corten steel sign. This steel was designed to eliminate the need for painting by forming a stable rust like appearance after several years of exposure.
The dark stone colour of our contemporary colour blend, Kernow Granite, was the perfect colour match for the stones surrounding the sign and helped ensure that the sign was visible all year round.
Oltco’s resin bound product produces no loose chippings, leaving a smooth surface which requires very little maintenance, fitting the brief perfectly.
