Colourful start to 2018

Prefix Systems has announced a ‘significant’ investment in a new state of the art colouring facility, which includes a mix on demand paint system, at its head office in Blackburn.

Prefix says it is responding to increased demand for colour, with a facility to manufacture conservatory and lantern roofs, along with Verandah glazing bars and end caps in ‘literally hundreds’ of different RAL colours. Heritage colours, urban influences and even one-off projects can now be offered by the company, with stocks of black and anthracite grey being held across several product ranges.

For conservatories and glazed extensions, Prefix says it can colour any extrusion, injection moulding, or vac formed product. It adds that greater quality control, consistency of supply and new sales opportunities have been the rationale for the investment.

Prefix co-director, Chris Cooke, said: “Colour is one of the biggest talking points in the glazing and fenestration sectors. The days of just a few woodgrains and colours are now long gone and we are now able to produce fully manufactured products in a vast array of colours and with a 10-year finish guarantee.

“Our new colouring facility will provide customers with consistent supply, quality finish and with a quick turnaround from all four branches. We have a reputation for customer excellence and so this latest investment will again be testament to our commitment to service.”
