Repurposing Shipping Containers, Leeds

Leeds Dock

Cork Colour

When the owners of Canary Bar, a modern establishment built out of repurposed shipping containers, wanted to find a solution which would soundproof and insulate their premises, the pioneering SprayCork coating was the obvious choice.

The bar’s ceiling has been sprayed with the cork-based coating to provide enhanced insulating and sound-proofing properties, which are often two problem areas for any shipping container conversion. SprayCork was also specified in order to tackle damp and condensation, as in colder months moisture can collect on the walls and ceiling of the bar. In keeping with the black and yellow theme of the bar, the product was sprayed in the colour Pitch to ensure the ambience remained the same.

Stephen Bickers, Operations Director at Leeds Dock, said: ‘When we wanted to refurbish the bar, it was essential we didn’t lose any of its atmosphere or features. After all, that’s one of the elements that makes it so unique. ‘SprayCork was the ideal solution providing a fantastic colour match as well as unrivalled sound proofing and damp prevention. We’re delighted with this product and the overall finish. We can confidently say it has far surpassed our expectations.’
