COLOURCOATING&FOILING


HOMEOWNERS AND SPECIFIERS LOOK FOR COLOUR INSPIRATION


The majority of installations may still be in white, but increasingly, homeowners and building specifiers are moving away from the safe and predictable, and looking for colour inspiration.


This trend towards colour ties in with consumer demand for products that will set their homes apart from the rest, create a different aesthetic effect and offer a pleasing addition to the environment.


Architects and designers today use colour as a statement, both inside and outside of a building. It is a question of offering a choice: colour may


often be subtle which can be more in keeping with many of today’s contemporary homes and other buildings – especially those in trend-setting commercial enterprises - such as the leisure and entertainment industries, retail and top-end office accommodation.


But it can also be more vibrant, and add some


exciting eye appeal to a dull area - or use more gentle, natural effects such as sands, greens, wood grains for a harmonious environment.


Colour is one of the fastest growing sectors


of the window and conservatories market, with growing demand for colour in rooflines and


composite doors. There is also a lot more interest in colour in the soffit and fascia market.


There seems no doubt that colour coated and foiled products are being increasingly seen as very attractive propositions in the move towards a more adventurous approach, much more suited to the 21st century.


Create a different aesthetic effect and offer a pleasing addition to the environment.


IT’S A KOLORFUL WORLD!


It’s a colourful world out there – and that applies to the PVCu industry which for so long was stuck in the white or woodgrain doldrums.


West-Yorkshire based Kolorseal was in the forefront of the move towards colour and is still leading the way in colour – which is the fastest growing sector of the window and conservatory market.


Additionally, but not surprisingly, the demand for colour products is gradually spreading to the fascia and soffit industry.


Debbie Copperthwaite, managing director at


Kolorseal commented, “We have seen a huge growth in colour year on year, since we were first established seven years ago. Currently, the focus is very much on conservatories, rooflines and composite doors.


“But we are also seeing a substantial increase in demand for coloured foiled products and that in turn, is fuelling rising demand for coloured ancillary products, such as trims, rooflines, trickle vents, conservatory roofs and rainwater goods.


“Because we are specialists within the colour coating industry, we can match any colour,” Debbie continued.


“We can offer any RAL or BS colour and can also provide a colour matching service for any other colours. And our colour coatings come with a15 year guarantee.”


From its purpose-built 12,500 square foot


factory in West Yorkshire, Kolorseal operates three spray booths, supplying quality coloured products nationwide.


Kolorseal can colour your own frames, doors, composite doors, roofs, rooflines –or alternatively provide you with the full package – supply, colour and deliver. This is something many of the company’s customers opt for, because in a competitive market, it offers them the opportunity to provide bespoke, unique products to customers – with the added attraction of boosting profit margins by getting away from standard industry colours.
