Anti Vandal Paint Available From Greengates Builders Merchants Accrington, lancashire

The early dark nights are with us once again, which gives vandals more chance to strike. Don’t let vandals be a problem to you or your property use anti-vandal paint.  It can be used on drain pipes, sills, tops of wall and fences, anywhere which may be used as a grip point to gain unauthorised access, use on electricity pylons to prevent access to dangerous areas, telegraph poles and lamp post to prevent climbing.
