Plaques for Pumps
20th October 2018:
Plaques on pumps have always presented problems. Painting on to the glossy surface of tiles needs a lot of care and attention.
Just recently our eldest son Éamonn did the trip to Malawi in our place, while I had surgery on my throat.
He thought long and hard about a solution. He researched, tested and brought out an engraver, seen here with Christopher, our painter.
I thought it would be painstaking and slow, but it worked a treat. They print off the A4 typed sheet, and Christopher folds it around the tile and engraves through it onto the tile.
It is in fact much quicker and absolute precision. The black paint is put into the groove taken out.
Another innovation is that the tile is inset into a former plastered into the pump wall.
The difference it makes is spectacular.
Well done Éamonn from all.
