Bring a ‘new dimension’ to your business Colour coatings specialist, Kolorseal, says that it has established a ‘formidable reputation for excellence across the UK’, primarily supplying PVC-U, glass and metal coated products to the fenestration sector. The Wakefield based company is said to have ‘accommodated industry changes’ and diversified its window, door and conservatory product portfolio to include colour coated roofline products, such as cladding, soffit boards, guttering and other ancilliaries. Kolorseal says that its products can be coated in any colour, with the Farrow and Ball chart proving most popular, and that it can supply coloured windows and doors within a 14 day turnaround, or within seven days if the products have already been fabricated. The Kolorseal range comes with a 10 year guarantee and can be delivered direct to site or factory via a national fleet. Lasting quality is reportedly achieved via a unique coating, which forms a molecular bond with the surface, making it part of the structure and therefore resistant to warping, shrink or fade, regardless of weather conditions.

Built in 1963 with concrete cladding, Danesgate House, which is now used as student accommodation, was said to be looking particularly ‘tired and out of place’, with windows and facade in need of replacement and better insulation required. Aluminium cassette rain screen cladding consisting of 200mm planks in a clapperboard style was chosen to replace the concrete. Powdertech Corby’s sales director, Richard Besant, explained: “The existing red brick of the building was retained and the designers wanted the colour and pattern of the cladding to enhance this, and also blend in with the historic buildings nearby. We were asked to source five shades of grey to be applied to 15 batches of 200mm aluminium planks. We selected five from the Valspar range.” In order to minimise disruption to residents the refurbishment was carried out within a tight timescale. Powdertech Corby coated and delivered 2,500m² of aluminium across an eight week period. The windows were replaced with larger, grey, double glazed slimprofile frames. The building now complements the surrounding architecture and Powdertech Corby claims the powder coating will last in excess of 20 years. to gain a market advantage are opting to add our colours as part of their range, because it brings a new dimension to their business.
