Barton Turns Marina

Barton Turns Marina is situated in the heart of the Inland Waterway network, on the Trent and Mersey Canal between Burton upon Trent and Lichfield. The marina was redecorated making extensive use of Sadolin Superdec to help improve the appearance of the timber detailing on certain buildings within the marina.

The marina is privately owned and was purpose built on the 85 acre site. The development comprises two lakes, new forest plantation and over 320 berths for permanent and temporary moorings.

Long-lasting Visual Appeal

Redecoration took place on the boathouse and the adjoining facilities building, which houses a gift shop, offices, toilets and a laundry. Superdec was specified in Zodiac Blue for the exterior timber, due to its durability and long-lasting visual appeal. Because of the location of the buildings, obviously the coating had to be water resistant. Superdec is an opaque wood protection coating, combining both alkyd and acrylic resins. An alkyd resin offers the benefit of greater absorption, while acrylics provide flexibility.

Brightens and Protects

The buildings at Barton Turns Marina were redecorated by Gary Wright Decorators, based in Barton upon Needwood, who commented the redecoration of the marina buildings was straightforward. Using the Superdec coating gives the exterior timber longer life and extra visual appeal, brightening up the buildings and protecting them at the same time.”
