Unique Two Step Paint Process

The new continuous line powder paint curing booth will further improve the quality of paint finish on all of Wicksteed’s steel products. Quality is at the forefront of Wicksteed’s mantra and this dedication to quality allows the company to offer an extensive array of guarantees on their products. Wicksteed remain the only playgrounds manufacturer to utilise a 2 step paint process involving a zinc thermal spray and powder coated paint finish.

Environmental Impact

The new cutting edge paint facility at Wicksteed will represent a large energy saving for the company and will help to reduce the carbon footprint of the painting process. In an increasingly competitive market place, Wicksteed remains an outstanding and committed UK manufacturer and designer with continued investment in both cutting edge technology and personnel.
