Panel and composite door skin expert, 3D Laminates, is now four years into the supply of its CoolSkin product to WB Group, which manufactures in excess of 1,000 door panels per month.
CoolSkin was developed 10 years ago, with German plastics engineer Roechling supplying the substrate and Hornschuch the Cool Colors foil. Combined, 3D Laminates claims this has made for a laminated sheet product with ‘exceptional performance characteristics’ for all European markets. According to 3D Laminates, there have been no instances of any product failures to date, and the product is backed by a comprehensive 10-year warranty.
WB Group operates from a 70,000ft2 facility in the North East of England and has specialised in the manufacture of PVC-U windows and doors, composite doors and PVC-U door panels. In the last four years, tens of thousands of door panels have been manufactured by the company, each benefitting from CoolSkin technology and the reassurance of a product that’s designed to perform over the long-term.
Charlotte Craggs, director at WB Group commented: “Over the last four years we have seen strong sales for our door panels, with no signs of demand falling. The CoolSkin product gives added reassurance for us and our customers and it’s very much part of our key sales features.”
Mark Lofthouse, managing director of 3D Laminates concluded: “We’ve developed a truly impressive product specifically for door panels and composite doors. Our sales are proving strong in the UK, with customers such as WB Group and for other product applications in overseas markets.”
