Colour foil finishes in woodgrain – stay on trend with Formula One

Gone are the days when PVCu window frames only came in white or in a choice of two wood colours. Nowadays the discerning home owner now has an extensive range of colour foil finishes to choose from in the Formula One Range™.

But what is a colour foil finish?

Well, a foil finish is heat-bonded laminate layer fused to the surface of a PVCu frame. The finish is incredibly hard wearing – in fact, it is virtually unbreakable as it becomes one with the original frame. With a life expectancy of over 30 years, foil finishes offer an extremely durable, long-lasting finish.

Foils can be manufactured to replicate the colour and texture of many different species of wood. By imitating the grain found in natural timbers, a Formula One foil finish frame will add a specific visual effect that enhances the look and style of any home.

Benefits of foil finishes

Due to the highly durable nature of foil finish frames, you will find that they remain low-maintenance throughout their lifetime. A wipe over with a damp cloth will keep your frames in excellent condition.

Furthermore, foil finished frames offer exceptionally low U-values meaning that your home will be warmer and your energy bills lower than a property fitted with standard PVCu frames.

The installation of foil finish frames gives property owners the option of having a natural, timber look to their property without the time consuming and costly maintenance that comes with real wood.

It is testament to the quality, aesthetic and durability of colour foil finishes in woodgrain that we are seeing more and more installations of these products in conservation areas – they really are suitable for any property.
