The restaurant is run by a passionate chef team of Connor O’Dowd and Paul McNamara.

The Challenge

Locks Restaurant was refurbishing its premises and wanted its existing furniture to match its modern and aesthetically pleasing visuals. The requirements included:

  • No construction noises
  • Minimum disruption
  • Rejuvenate furniture without the need for replacement
    efficient passive barriers.
  • Easy and quickly maintenance

The Solution

Our LX Hausys Marbling BM002 was used on all furniture to create an entirely new marble look without needing a stone replacement or new furniture to be purchased. This film was chosen due to its great looks and texture, durability, 3D conformability, waterproofness, and easiness of cleaning and maintenance. Using our cutting-edge interior film solutions can help refurbish restaurant furniture without the need for replacement and hiring skips. In addition to this, when using our interior films, any damaged parts can be replaced without substituting the whole furniture. There was no need for furniture replacement with our interior films: decreasing actual and future costs and environmental impacts.
