Coo-Var Vandalene Anti Climb Paint. A Quick Security Solution

Coo-Var Vandalene Anti Climb Paint, also known as security paint, anti intruder paint, or non-drying paint, is a revolutionary product designed to deter trespassers, vandals, and burglars. With its unique non-drying properties, this security paint offers a slip-free barrier that’s almost impossible to grip, providing an effective solution against intrusion.

Coo-Var Vandalene Anti Climb Paint

The Coo-Var Vandalene Anti Climb Paint is a petroleum gel-based, non-drying paint that is applied thickly to potential climbing surfaces. The paint remains in a gel form, creating a slippery barrier that makes climbing nearly impossible. Any attempts to grip the painted surface result in the paint contaminating the intruder’s skin and garments, further deterring unwelcome access.

This anti climb paint is a non-aggressive form of security barrier. It’s typically used in combination with non-aggressive anti climb solutions like an anti climb Roller Barrier system especially in areas where aggressive anti climb solutions are inappropriate, such as schools and care establishments.

Coo-Var Vandalene Anti Climb Paint: Where It’s Applied

The Coo-Var Vandalene Anti Climb Paint is versatile and can be used in a variety of settings. While it’s non-toxic and harmless to humans and animals, it poses a threat to aquatic environments and should not be used around ponds or similar water bodies.

The security paint is primarily used to deter unauthorized access to rooftops and properties. It’s an effective deterrent against vandals who may try to climb structures to leave tags or spray-paint graffiti.

Anti Climb Paint is widely used in various applications, including:

  • CCTV equipment support poles and posts to prevent theft and vandalism.
  • Lighting support posts to deter theft and damage.
  • Schools to prevent rooftop access and protect students from potential climbing injury.
  • Churches to prevent lead theft, a requirement of most ecclesiastical insurance policies.
  • Ministry of Defence properties requiring high security.
  • Supermarket goods yards and industrial sites needing burglary protection.
  • Residential properties to deter intruders from scaling perimeter walls.
  • Scaffolding to prevent unauthorized climbing and potential injuries.
  • Drainpipes as a security measure, preventing possible intruder access to rooftops or windows.

Coo-Var Vandalene Anti Climb Paint: Legal Considerations in the UK

As a property owner, it’s essential to understand the legal implications of using security paint. Under the Occupiers Liability Act 1984, property owners have a duty of care to anyone on their property, including unwelcome intruders. If an intruder slips and injures themselves due to your security paint, this is considered a foreseeable hazard, and warnings should have been provided.

Other legal considerations include the Highways Act 1980 which requires that care is taken to prevent harm or injury if the painted wall or surface is adjacent to a public highway.

Moreover, it’s important to remember that the paint can stain or mark clothing, so it’s generally recommended to apply it to surfaces above 2.1m (7 feet) from the ground to avoid accidental contact.

The Importance of Anti Climb Warning Signs

When using Coo-Var Vandalene Anti Climb Paint, it’s essential to display warning signs to fulfil your duty of care and act as a deterrent. The signs should be prominently displayed where the paint has been applied.
