K6 Restoration Process

Step 1. Stripping Out

First the kiosk is stripped out: all the remaining glass and fittings are removed until all that is left is a cast iron shell.

Step 2. Sand Blasting

This is then sand blasted back to bare metal so that it resembles the condition it was in when it first came out of the foundry.

Step 3. Paint & Finish

After being de-greased, the K6 is then painted with 1 coat of red oxide primer followed by at least 3 coats of red enamel.

Seventy-two panes of 6.5mm thick safety glass are used to re-glaze the kiosk, including the Push/Pull panel.

Safety glass is also used for the four hand screen-printed TELEPHONE signs at the top of each box.
