Showroom first

Installers can now see the new Veka Spectral finish foils at Tradesmith’sthree newly opened showrooms at its factory in Hailsham in East Sussex.

Spectral is an system developed by Veka using patented technology to create an ultrasmooth, ultramatt finish. Tradesmith’s showrooms, the first to display Spectral windows, include French doors in umbra grey with platinum grey on the inside of the frame, and a flush sash window in platinum grey.

Scratch-resistant, anti-fingerprint, and resistant to UV, harsh chemicals and extreme weather, the new material is designed to absorb light to create denser, richer colours. It’s also fully recyclable.

Tradesmith’s MD Mark Hutchinson said: “It’s a real attention grabber. It’s a beautiful finish that makes windows and doors look stunning. It’s a finish you just want to touch. I expect we’ll be selling a lot of this.”

Veka UK Group’s marketing director Dawn Stockell said: “Spectral has been years in development and was created with our customers at the very heart of the process. We’ve already had some exceptional feedback and I’m glad that installers in East Sussex and the surrounding areas can see (and feel) this product for themselves at Tradesmith’s showroom, as it’s unlike anything else in the industry.

“Matt finishes have long been favoured by architects and designers, and this sophisticated aesthetic is also now being requested by discerning homeowners; Spectral gives installers another string to their bow when it comes to these ‘high style’ projects.”
