It takes a remarkable wood finish to withstand penetrating frost, lashing rain, intense uv rays and damaging rot attack.
omnia is the modern solution…a true breakthrough in aqueous polymer technology.
omnia by Morrells offers many years protection against the elements as long as timber selection, preparation and design meet TWA scheme criteria & requirement standards, and the application of the coatings are in accordance with the appropriate Morrells product data and/or specification. Very exposed or coastal locations can reduce the longevity of all exterior coatings. For this reason annual inspections and maintenance must be carried out with the omnia maintain range of products.
