Sea spray - South Brighton Changing Pavilion

South Brighton Changing PavilionExposed to harsh salt spray and the vigours of beach life, a Resene engineered coating system was specified on the newly built South Brighton Changing Pavilion in Marine Parade, Christchurch to give maximum protection against nature and humans.

Block walls and Villaboard were finished in a three coat graffiti resistant Resene Uracryl gloss finish, while all steel was coated in a high build urethane system. Timberwork has been further protected from the elements with Resene X-200 weathertight membrane. The high gloss finish on doors was achieved with topcoats of durable easy clean Resene Super Gloss enamel. Underfoot, the concrete floor was first acid etched and then coated with three coats of Resene Aquapoxy to complete the durable shell.

Tagging has been discouraged through the use of an artistic beach theme. Vibrant colours, symbolic ceramic tiles and artwork, have given all New Brighton beach-goers a safe and convenient changing facility for those hot summer days.
