Once a niche product, coloured PVC profiles are now entering the mainstream. One company perfectly positioned to help installers take advantage of this is leading trade fabricator Modplan. Not only is the company a VEKA fabricator and therefore able to offer the newly launched Variations range of foiled colours, it also made considerable investment in their new paint spray facility earlier this year so can offer a comprehensive range of spray finish colours too.
Chris Reeks, Modplan’s Sales Manager said, “Our package of foils and sprays mean that our customers can offer an alternative to aluminium. This is especially good news for our customers who operate in the commercial market. When you’re competing with an aluminium alternative, you need to show that PVC-U offers the same aesthetic versatility, is competitively priced and has a shorter lead time too.”
Foil finishes will be available on Modplan’s FS profile range plus its vertical slider and sliding patio door. Foils available ex stock are the increasingly popular Chartwell Green in addition to perennial favourites Dark Green, Beck Brown , Anthracite Grey and White Woodgrain. All other colours in the Variations range will be available to order with an extended lead time.
Alongside the new foils are Modplan’s spray finishes, all applied in-house for a rapid turnaround time. The company uses Kolorbond, a product which is manufactured in the UK and all Modplan’s profiles can benefit from it. Unlike most paints for plastics which stick to the substrate, Kolorbond forms a molecular cross bond with the plastic surface for a longer lasting finish. Available in any RAL colour, not only is a spray finish fantastically versatile it also means that profiles can be coloured on every surface for a seamless and sophisticated look.
Chris Reeks says, “Coloured profiles, whether foiled or sprayed, are an aesthetically appealing option for homeowners , specifiers and architects. We are proud to be supplying high quality, durable finishes in both alternatives and are looking forward to helping our customers make the most of what colour has to offer.”
