Protek Brightening up Primary Schools


Over the last few years we at Protek have noticed an increase in our contracting customers using Wood Protector. This colourful range is becoming a popular choice of wood stain for colouring and protecting children's play equipment in Primary Schools across the country. Ben Thornborough from Protek says "There's a simple formula to the Protek range: we make the best looking and performing product we can, ensuring that we offer the best value possible but being ever conscious to use the most environmentally sympathetic methods and raw materials that are practical."


Protek can offer Primary Schools a bright and inspiring colour range that can be applied to a wide variety of materials throughout the playground from wooden play equipment to masonry walls. With this one product the whole outside area can be made bright and welcoming at an affordable price. Within the Protek Wood Protector range are all the colours of the rainbow.


Why is colour so important?

Whether we are aware of it or not colour plays an important part in all of our lives. It affects all our senses: sight, sound, smell, taste and emotion. Colour can change our moods very effectively both on a conscious and unconscious level. Certain colour codes have been used in human society for hundreds of years - red for danger and white for peace.

Every colour has warm and cool tones and you need to decide if you want a calm or stimulating environment, for example, warm colours evoke activity and cool colours evoke a tranquil mood. The lightness and darkness of colours can also affect mood, for example, a deep yellow will produce a more intimate effect than pale lemon.


Why is Protek Wood Protector ideal for children's play areas?

Protek's Wood Protector has been approved for use on products carrying the CE mark, EN71, making it the ideal choice for any equipment to be used by children, such as climbing frames and Wendy houses. Possibly what's most interesting to people about this product is what is left out. There is no turpentine or white spirit in the make-up, no heavy metals, lead, mercury etc., no formaldehyde or formaldehyde donors.


Benefits of Protek Wood Protector

Protek Wood Protector creates a microporous waterproof coating that contains a non-hazardous mould and algae inhibitor to protect the integrity of the coating. The coatings are water based so there are very low VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and the colours are made from organic pigments that are very bright, pure and long lasting.


The coating can be applied by brushing spraying or roller. It is quick drying and will last up to 5 years. This wood stain is water based, plant and pet friendly and is so good that it will even adhere to masonry and terracotta pots. Wood Protector is also ideal for animal areas such as chicken coups, stables, kennels and catteries. In the garden it is first choice for fencing, sheds, chalets, cabins, summer houses, planters and garden furniture.
