You’ve done your homework on which windows and doors are perfect for your home. Now for the fun part: picking the colours! Once upon a time, your options were pretty limited. Not anymore. No matter what look you’re after, there’s a huge range of colours and finishes to choose from. Your only problem will be deciding on just one!
Fall in love with the dark side.
Darker coloured joinery is on the rise, with Monument and Custom Black from AWS being some of the most popular dual-finish choices for home owners in 2017. Dark window frames work really well if you love dark timber-framed furniture and floors. They also provide a fantastic colour offset for the light-coloured interior walls that are so on-trend right now.
Light up your home with whites and creams.
With so many people favouring neutral colour palettes, white joinery around your windows and doors gives you so much flexibility. And if you’re a fan of a ‘pop of colour’ in your soft furnishings, you’re on a winner with this colour combination.
Who’s a silver fox?
Silvers and greys are sleek, modern and bold. What’s not to love?! They’re also the ideal accompaniment to the popular ‘industrial’ look as well as all your gorgeous stainless-steel kitchen appliances.
Red and yellow and pink and green… You can have a rainbow!
Alright, there isn’t actually a ‘rainbow’ option – not yet, anyway! – but the choice of colours for your window and door frames really has come ahead in leaps and bounds from previous generations. Want a lovely pastel pink or purple? You got it. A bold red for great feng shui? Done! A striking blue to match the sky? Yellow for the sun? Green for the green, green grass of home? Why not?! Get creative and express yourself. There’s nothing stopping you anymore!

All Vantage®, Elevate™ and ThermalHEART™ windows and doors are made to order so you have complete freedom to choose the perfect colour and
finish for your project.
Like any other painted surface, powder coated aluminium performs at its best when properly cared for. The key is keeping the surface free from pollutants and environmental contaminants.
A gentle clean with a soft brush and mild detergent, followed by a fresh water rinse will maintain the long-term performance of your powder coated products. Cleaning in shade and during cooler parts of the day is ideal. Ensure the cloths or brushes used are soft. Wipe gently to avoid
scratches and scraping.
Cleaning should be undertaken as below:
• Rural and urban environments: every 12 months
• Industrial, coastal or high pollution areas: every 3 months
• Heavy industrial, marine or beachfront areas: monthly
Do not use strong solvents, abrasive cleaning products or any product recommended for thinning paints. To remove splashed paint, sealants or mastics use white spirits. We recommend that prior to using any cleaning agent, test a small non-visible area of your powder coated product to ensure that no visual colour change or damage will occur. Ask us for the care and maintenance information specific to your product choice.
