New colour options

Apeer’s Lumi window and door system now comes in two new colours, white and cream, which will be added to the external-facing ceramic border.

The highly resilient border is fused to surface two of the insulated glazing unit at temperatures of 700°C, using Apeer’s on site toughening furnace.

With 15 internal finishes available – including the recent additions of white smooth, cream smooth, black smooth, and chartwell green – and a total of nine external colour options, Lumi now offers a wide range of colour combinations.

The colours were launched at the SelfBuild consumer show in Dublin in September and received positive feedback from visitors.

With anthracite grey proving to be the most popular colour thus far, reaction from visitors at the show suggests that preference may now change.

“We have written more than 100 quotes so far since Dublin and 70% are cream,” said Linda Tomb, the company’s marketing manager.

“However, the UK market is showing a preference for white and it’s interesting to see the geographical differences. On our Lumi residential doors, our AnTeak internal finish is popular across the board.

“Anthracite grey remains the most popular colour choice for Lumi bifolding and sliding doors in all markets.”
