Gold metallic shutters in Istanbul

TNESC Managing Director Nick recently visited Istanbul to measure the large windows of an apartment with wonderful views of the Bosphorus river. The shutters are over 3 metres tall and finished in a sparkling gold metallic paint. As the paint is different to our usual quick-drying spray paint each shutter blade takes two days to dry on each side, but we think the extra time and effort is worth it!
