Handcrafted Shepherd Huts with Teknos Paints

Blackdown Shepherd Huts is a company with quality at its heart.  Based in Somerset, the team builds high-end shepherd huts for commercial and residential customers; in turn, it is important that the constituent materials demonstrate the same luxury feel as the huts themselves.

Blackdown’s strong eco credentials mean that paint and coatings must complement this sustainable ethos. Teknos was selected as the coatings supplier due to the portfolio of quality, water-based, low and solvent free paints which help timber withstand harsh climates, protecting it from UV-light, rain, humidity and extreme temperatures.

“All our shepherd huts are as individual as the people that buy them; they also have to be practical and robust” explains Founding Partner, Will Vickery.  “Teknos paints give us the quality we strive for in terms of colour and effect.” Blackdown has been using Teknos paints for over four years on both interior and exterior wood.

On the huts’ exteriors, Teknos Aquatop 2600 provides a flexible, durable and microporous protective film which is resistant to attack from bacteria, mould and UV-rays. Most of Blackdown’s huts are coated in the translucent version of this product allowing the natural beauty of the wood to be enjoyed, In addition, however there is a range of opaque colours should the customer request it. For huts painted in a solid colour, exterior joinery is primed with Teknos Antistain Aqua 2901 which minimises hardwood tannin staining.

Will continues, “Inside our huts, we use Teknocoat Aqua 2575 which works in harmony with the superior design and aesthetics of our shepherd huts. It comes in a myriad of colours so we can offer our customers an interior they will love and cherish for years.” This interior paint can be applied by spray, brush or roller to softwoods, hardwoods, engineered and modified timbers and even suitably primed fibreboards.

As demand for these exclusive huts increases, production speeds are critical so the quick drying and good stacking properties of all Teknos coatings make them the perfect paint partner for Blackdown.  These modern technologies in production, as well as design expertise, ensure a premium product.

Will concludes “We create unique spaces that reflect the tastes and personalities of our clients. The range and overall finish of Teknos paints enrich that experience for our customers while the ease of use and exceptional customer service Blackdown receives from Teknos makes them our first choice for coatings.”
