How to paint security doors in blackburn
Posted On July 1, 2021
As the first house to be built in the new $1.8 billion Blackburn housing project in north-east Queensland, a blackburn-themed paint job will make it a lot easier to access the house’s first floor.
A large-scale mural will be painted on the front door of the first floor, where the bedrooms and bathrooms will sit, and on the sides of the main entry way, where security doors will face.
The $1 billion Blackwood Housing Development in North Queensland is expected to house a total of 3,000 people, with the first to be in place in March.
Key points:The mural will make painting security doors easier for residents, with it taking about 40 minutes to completeIt will take about 10 minutes to paint a large-sized wall on the inside of the front doorsSecurity doors are an essential part of a security-centric house and can be a security deterrent to intrudersThe mural is expected be completed within a few weeks and will cover a large area, including the front and rear doors, with panels of a similar design used in a similar way to the one used for security doors.
The mural, called ‘The Door’, will be built on top of a large mural of the Queensland flag, a message to the people of the Blackburn region that the community has always been part of Queensland.
A spokesperson for Blackburn Council, which owns the property, said the paint job would be completed in a couple of weeks.
“We will have a large paint job on the first day, the door will be finished in the second week and then the second floor will be complete in the third week,” she said.
“Once the paint is done, the doors will be covered in the paint with some of the panels will be exposed.”
The paint job was part of an ongoing project to help paint the front entrance doors.
“The mural was done in a way to be able to show that this is not just a one-off,” Ms Kellar said.”[It is] a very long term project that is going to last for a long time.”
It is important to paint the door and we want to be visible that we are not just just just building the house, but also the community.”‘
We are a safe community’Blackburn Council was able to secure $600,000 in funding from the Australian Federal Government to help with the paint project.”
Our local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community and the wider Blackburn area have always been supportive of this,” Ms Kelly said.
The council hopes to have the mural completed by the end of the year, with completion planned for the summer.
