A year for colour

Pantone has already announced that 16-1546 Living Coral is its colour for 2019 and, closer to home, Prefix expects that its big push on colour is likely to be in various shades of grey and blue for the home improvement sector this year.

Just over 18 months ago, Prefix Systems made a major investment in its production site in Blackburn with a colouring facility to increase flexibility and quality for coloured roofs and profiles to its customers.

Demand for coloured conservatories, doors, windows and lantern roofs is on the increase and Prefix products can now be painted in hundreds of different RAL colours, with consistent quality and swift turnaround on any colour.

Chris Cooke of Prefix Systems, said: “While we are not expecting too many requests for Living Coral this year, we do expect more installation companies to come to us with coloured product enquiries. With a market in the 1980s dominated by white PVCU, we’re now faced with a consumer demand for more individual colours, something that we can now satisfy with a high quality, long lasting solution.

“Customers are now actively involving us in product specification and colour, and so our level of customer care is crucial in helping cement these sales. It’s another string to our bow and another reason why Prefix has become the supplier of choice in the conservatory, warm roof, outdoor living and aluminium sectors.”
