Finishes & Coatings

Make a statement with your choice of colour or finish

Bespoke frame finishes & coatings

Whether for domestic or commercial use, all of our quality frame finishes and coatings are durable, hard wearing and will enhance your chosen product.

Depending on what material you choose will dictate which finish you can have. Whether your choice is timber, aluminium or aluminium and timber clad or glass, bi-fold doors, sliders, windows etc... we’ve got it covered (literally)!

We have listed below the finishes and coatings available under each material option (just click to expand each coloured tab):

Powder Coated

Available in any RAL colour

Our most popular finish. All of our aluminium products are powder coated to a quality that far exceeds many competitors standards, which translates to our customers owning a product with an exceptional hardwearing and durable finish. Our powder coatings have a life expectancy of up to 25 years and are maintenance free. A simple wipe with a cloth will keep your doors, sliders and windows looking great for many years to come.

Marine grade (powder coating)

We also offer Marine-grade powder coated aluminium. Marine-grade powder coating provides a solid barrier to salt particles and prevents them from permeating the finish. This means the aluminium beneath is kept protected and is significantly less likely to fail over time. So this option is ideal protection for extreme weather areas, such as coastal locations.

To choose your colour accurately and to get a more precise idea of what the colour looks like, it is advised that you obtain a printed RAL colour chart from your local decorators’ merchant or pop into one of our showrooms.

Timber pre-treatment

All of our hardwood timber frames are initially dipped into an anti-rot, and anti-fungal treatment to protect the frames from both the harsh rays of the sun and water ingress.

They are then finished to your specification using either a natural stain or a RAL colour of your choice, or if preferred we can provide the doors unfinished so you can paint or stain to your desired finish.

Our hardwood timber at a glance
  • FSC Certified hardwood timber (from sustainable managed forests)
  • Red Wood/Eucalyptus (hardwood) option
  • European Oak (hardwood) option
  • Anti-rot treated as standard
  • Anti-fungal treated as standard
  • Engineered (laminated), spliced, glued and pressure treated as standard

Translucent Wood Coatings

High quality, breathable, low-VOC paints

FSDC Global only use high quality, low-VOC paints with sustainability at their core, and which are natural breathable stains that will enhance your choice of woodgrain.

Our factory spray coatings are applied to the timber in three coats at 250 microns per coat, this is comparable with up to 15 coats of brush-applied paint. All our coatings are low maintenance and have a very long-life span, up to 10 years before requiring first maintenance.

Please note, because wood is a natural material, surface texture and shade may vary slightly. Further or technical information on the type of finish we use on timber can be found at Teknos.

Screen Printed

Silk screen printed glass from the reverse

As well as the choice of the actual glass units, which can be clear or tinted (anti-sun/turtle glass etc) we can also custom finish the flush glazed edging to any specific RAL colour too.

This is achieved by silk screen printing the glass from underneath (which masks internal components) - and also resulting in a gloss/glassy colour finish - pretty much like a state of the art touch screen mobile phone.

The benefit of this application is that it is fully protected behind the glass so is totally scratch resistant.

  • Totally maintenance free, just treat as glass
  • Available in any RAL colour
  • Glass products have a ten year guarantee
