Window and door fabricator Quickslide is responding to growing demand for bespoke coloured PVC-U windows and doors with the launch of its own-in-house painting facility.
The new facility will not only give Quickslide customers keen pricing and quick turnaround, it will also give the fabricator far more control throughout the entire process, including more stringent quality control.
The company has been offering its customers painted windows for over ten years, Managing Director Ben Weber explained, and demand has continued to increase throughout that time as more and more homeowners make the most of an ever-broadening range of options.
He continued: “We have gained more experience than most during the last ten years so it seems a natural evolution that we should bring the process in-house. It also synergises well with our in-house laminating facility and means that now we can offer installers a laminated product that incorporates painted elements to create a higher quality, better finished product.”
Quickslide has always maintained the philosophy of bringing as many processes as possible in-house, including not only foiling and now painting but also glass unit manufacture, to give the company far greater control of quality and consistency, as well as lead times.
Yorkshire-based Quickslide is best-known for its acclaimed sliding sash windows, and the company has been instrumental in bringing this former niche product into the mainstream of the retrofit and new-build markets, but it also manufactures a wide range of other styles of windows and doors for trade and commercial customers.
