Deck Guard Protects Waterfront Home
Bona’s DeckGuard was used to protect and extend the life of the decking on this luxury waterfront home in Calicut, India. The custom built home’s deck was badly worn and was in need of an effective refurbishment that would last. Extreme rain and the effects of the elements had created mildew and unsightly blemishes on the deck. Pair that with the extreme UV exposure, and you have a very tired deck. The owner sought a solution that could safeguard the deck while also providing a fresh, new look.
The Architect teamed up with Bona to offer a quick & simple solution – Bona Deck Guard. It is a water-based liquid resin polymer product, designed to restore and protect hardwood or synthetic decks, as well as outdoor furniture. The owners decided on using the DeckGuard Medium Brown colour to give the deck a deep rich appearance. Application was a simple process that started with brushing loose dirt & grit from the deck. Then, the deck was cleaned using the Bona PowerScrubber and Bona Deep Clean Solution. Once the deck was dry, 2 Coats of Bona Medium Brown Deck Guard were applied. The deck was cured and ready to walk on in 24hrs.
Korean Gallery, British Museum
The Korean gallery in the British Museum was created in 2000 thanks to the generosity of the Korea Foundation, and refurbished in 2014 with a grant from the National Museum of Korea. Bona Traffic Matt was used from inception on a floor which was installed to match the elegance of the Korean artefacts of the museum, with a classic natural understated look. The flat Matt appearance protects the floor without detracting from the exhibits.
This gallery creates an encounter with the Korean peninsula’s art, history and culture, through the important collections of the British Museum and partner institution the National Museum of Korea
National Portrait Gallery
The National Portrait Gallery in London was the first portrait gallery in the world when it opened in 1856. Today it houses portraits of historically important and famous British people from throughout the ages with everyone from Kings and Queens to pop stars, writers, sports stars and models on the walls, attracting thousands of visitors each day. There is over 1500 m² of hand cut parquetry floors amongst the many thousands of metres of timber floors which are a feature of the gallery’s character and heritage.
When the floors require refinishing the choice of finish is critical so as to be able to withstand the heavy use. Bona finishes have been used here and in the adjoining National Gallery in Trafalgar Square for over 20 years and Bona Traffic HD water based finish was chosen to protect the floors for many more years to come.
