New paint line opens doors
Deceuninck fabricator Fastframe has invested over £150,000 in a Decoroc paint line for Deceuninck commercial windows and doors.
The Decoroc line is the first of its kind outside Deceuninck’s headquarters in Belgium and, since opening the line, Fastframe has won a number of major commercial contracts.
Decoroc is Deceuninck’s patented colour coating system. It gives a high performance, long-lasting finish that matches aluminium powder coating for looks and performance, the company said. Scratch, impact, and abrasion resistant, Decoroc is micro-sprayed for a highly durable, easy-clean matt finish and comes with a 10-year guarantee. It comes in a wide choice of RAL colours and is ideal for demanding commercial applications.
Fastframe’s commercial director Paul Moody said: “Architects and specifiers love the Decoroc finish because it’s extremely durable and looks very similar to aluminium powder coating. We have a thriving commercial business, so it was the logical step to invest in our own Decoroc line to take full control of lead times and offer more flexibility to our commercial partners.
“This is the first time Decoroc has been licensed outside Belgium, so we had to go through an extensive process of training, auditing, and quality checks to get the line commissioned. But it was worth it. Demand has been so strong we’ve made a second investment to increase capacity. We’ve won a series of major commercial contracts and quickly covered our initial investment. We’re confident the new Decoroc facility will open more doors for Fastframe.”
Deceuninck MD Rob McGlennon said: “Decoroc is a truly innovative colour coating system, and when matched with our slim, incredibly strong 5000 window with Linktrusion technology it’s almost impossible to distinguish from aluminium by look, touch and performance.
“Major developers like Berkeley Group frequently specify our commercial windows with Decoroc, and Fastframe’s new line will further strengthen their commercial business.”
