Coloured windows and doors have a special role to play when it comes to façade design. They enhance the visual appeal of buildings, and are one of the first things people notice. As part of the façade, windows, front doors and lift-slide doors are exposed to sunlight, weather and environmental influences and mechanical influences. When this happens, it quickly becomes apparent that not all coloured profiles are the same.
The coloured acrylic layer is twice as hard as the PVC surface of white windows. It is highly scratch-resistant and is largely resistant to the effects of weather. The semi-matt, smooth and non-porous surface is insensitive to accumulations of dust and dirt. There is no spalling or chipping and no need for laborious repainting. GEALAN-acrylcolor® windows require virtually no maintenance and are extremely easy to care for.
For everyone who appreciates a natural appearance without sacrificing the benefits of modern window technology, there are vinyl windows with a wood grain look achieved using decor foils. They are recommended as a classic style element when renovating an old house, as well as for rustic designs. Windows with wood-grain decor foils offer all the positive properties of modern vinyl windows combined with the decorative effect of wood.
There are many different wood-effect decorative foils available for plastic-frame windows. But only RealWood foils give your windows a unique look and a special feel – because RealWood foils are significantly less glossy than standard wood-effect decorative foils. They feature attractive embossing that gives plastic-frame windows the natural appearance of wood, even though the foils are not made from wood. With a lifelike colour effect available in ten attractive hues, our new RealWood foils offer an appealing surface finish that is substantially closer to the look and feel of real wood than conventional wood-effect decorative foils. RealWood also has functional advantages that should not be overlooked: outstanding durability, UV resistance and weather resistance. Simply put, RealWood foils offer longevity. Whether for a new build or a renovation project, they will increase the value of your building and endure for decades to come.
These foils do not consist of real wood.
GEALAN Perfect White, or RAL 9016, gives a particularly fresh, contemporary and high-quality impression due to its slight grey tone. It keeps properties looking on-trend, which ensures stable value retention over the years. In addition, the shade is very widely used in window and door construction, and is used as standard in many construction products such as shutters, gates and accessory items.
The name Perfect White refers not only to the stylish colour, but also to the properties of the high-quality GEALAN-acrylcolor®: durability, colour-fastness and dirt-resistance. The semi-gloss outer surface will remain weather-resistant and timelessly elegant for decades, while the non-porous surface is unaffected by accumulations of dust and dirt – so there’s no flaking, chipping or annoying need to repaint.
GEALAN Perfect White is available for the GEALAN-KUBUS®, S 9000, and S 9000 lift-slide door systems, as well as all relevant accessory profiles.
Combining the durable decorative outer colour with a RealWood Pure White decor foil on the inside completes the striking overall impression created by windows and doors. The surface structure of the foil in particular ensures a pleasant texture and a refined look.
Furthermore, RealWood decors are absolutely equal to GEALAN-acrylcolor® technology in important ways: long-lasting durability along with a special surface structure, which in combination offer remarkable ability to withstand external influences. A range of colour shades can be combined on the inside and outside. The embossing and particular texture of the foil gives a premium and high-quality finish to the surfaces that is as captivating as real wood.
For selected profiles, GEALAN offers the option of customised aluminium casings that are clipped onto the outside of the window. This makes the windows extremely resistant and durable. Vinyl windows with a coloured aluminium casing are not only resistant and durable, they also offer comprehensive options for personalisation of the colour. They therefore combine the benefits of aluminium and vinyl. Their high functionality and modern, design-oriented aluminium look lend buildings a touch of exclusivity combined with the outstanding heat insulation of the vinyl window system.
