Cover Styl’ brings a realistic feel to Burley bar

UV Film Tech, a sign and film specialist company from Leeds have transformed a Burley WMC bar thanks to both the selection and installation of Cover Styl’ architectural finishes.

The challenge the Burley Bar presented to UV Film Tech was to rejuvenate their dull, and very much dated looking bar area into one which was brighter and appealing for customers who were visiting the premises.

During this period of uncertainty for the hospitality sector, a key priority was to keep costs down for this refurbishment. As a result, UV Film Tech recommended the interior wrapping material Cover Styl’ from Architextural, part of William Smith Group 1832 to help meet these objectives.

‘’Following an initial approach and then meeting with our clients it was clear that they wanted to transform their dated bar area into one which was far more in keeping with the times. The clients were looking for an alternative to ripping out the bar and having a full reconstruction due to both mess and expense. As a result, we then pitched the idea of architectural film and they were sold straight away, it was then just a case of picking the right film for the project.’’ Said Craig Nicholson, Managing Director of UV Film Tech.

Pattern K1, Mat black velvet grain was used for the bar top, with pattern G6, light grey wood used for the walls and doors. ‘’The product was extremely easy to work with and its durability gave us that extra bit of confidence in the material. The feel of the film even felt like quality, which provided more assurances when fitting. The conformability of the product also made those tricky areas of the application all the more easy.’’

Cover Styl architectural finishes wood grain pattern is something we are seeing more and more in the hospitality environment. Nothing beats the texture and warmth of natural materials. From walls to entire spaces, wood makes a room look comfortable and inviting, ultimately bringing an element of class to proceedings.

 ‘’The finished result was excellent to be honest. The club was a typical classic, dating looking environment and Cover Styl’ architectural finishes totally transformed this look. Following the project, the bar is unrecognisable, and now brings a more modern, clean and trendy feel, which was exactly what are clients were looking for.’’

Furthermore, the team always provide an efficient and productive assistance, with a great customer service to boot. They offer everything you want from your supplier.’’

The application is so seamless and easy, the product can even be applied during opening ours if you like, resulting in minimal losses and disruption for a business.
