It’s that time of year again when you need to be thinking VANDALS!­  Unfor­tunately vandals love the lighter nights and isolated buildings.

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, electricity pylons to prevent access to dangerous areas, telegraph poles and lamp post to prevent climbing.

Anti Vandal paint should be clearly identified to the public with WARNING NOTICES.

Anti Vandal paint is not recommended for use on surfaces in areas which are subject to legitimate daily contact. It is also recommended that it not be applied to sills, fall pipes, walls, etc., within 7 feet of the ground level.





New and previously painted surfaces should be dry and free from loose and flaking material, dirt, grease wax, etc.

Unpainted woodwork and steelwork should be primed with the appropriate primer.

Metal surfaces

Remove any loose material such as rust, scale, dirt, etc by thorough wire brushing and primed with a suitable primer prior to application of the Anti Vandal paint.

Smooth surfaces

Porous surfaces

Porous surfaces such as Unpainted Wood or Brickwork should be sealed with a suitable primer/­Sealer to prevent this product drying out prior to application of the Anti Vandal paint.

Don’t forget to read the safety leaflet and take the appropriate precautions.

Remember vandals will move from area to area so don’t get caught out.
