Champagne gold is the colour of the liquid metal in Harrods

Metalier champagne gold liquid metal was chosen as part of a massive refurbishment of Harrods of London.  Harrods is arguably one of the most prestigious department stores in the world.  It’s certainly one of the most famous.

Champagne gold was created by Granlyn

Congratulations are due to our Metalier distributors and best mates in the UK – Craig and Alison McDonald of Granlyn Specialist Coatings.  Alison worked with the contractors to come up with a special blended finish that she called Champagne Gold.  We thought that was a splendid name  – just right for a store that covers 90,000 sq m of space and sells luxury collections across 330 departments.

The Metalier liquid metal coating was applied to the sides of the escalators and in the bulkheads underneath – if that is the correct terminology.  That was a lot of Metalier and it looked absolutely magnificent.

The company undertaking the contract was based in Hong Kong and the hard work was done in China.  All the components of the escalator to seven floors were all shipped back for installation in situ.  The installation was completed in October 2016 and I was lucky enough to be able to visit the store in the following week.  I’m rather proud of the pictures I took.  I also took a video of the escalator moving which cracked up my son – the Metalier part wasn’t moving, he said, so there was no point in a video.

I’m not taking any notice of him.  Here is my video   What do you think?

Did you know that there are 4 main banks of escalators in Harrods.  The store attracts 15 million shoppers a year.  Chances are that they’ll all go up at least one set of escalators so we reckon that about 3.75 million people per annum get to see real live actual Metalier.  We think that’s amazing.  What’s even more satisfying, in a way, is that they won’t know it’s Metalier. It looks like solid metal!
