Midlands fabricator Central RPL recently launched their new Central Inspired colour division, promising a new kind of colour service for installers. Glass Times spoke to Central Inspired’s Cara Lansley and Gary Morton about the new service, how it works and what it means for their customers.
As any fabricator will tell you, demand for coloured windows is growing rapidly. We’ve already seen it with doors — especially composites — and all the indications are that the same is happening with windows. Mainland Europe is already there; market data shows that 70% of windows and doors there are coloured. Now the UK is catching up. It’s estimated that last year one in four windows and doors in the UK involved colour, and already this year installers are reporting greater demand.
With coloured windows no longer a rarity, and with Kolorseal Midlands on-site as part of our group, it made sense for Central RPL to place ourselves at the forefront of this new market direction. Although coloured products are becoming incredibly popular, actually buying them can be a headache for installers, especially when dealing with a host of different suppliers. We wanted to offer something better to our customers; a complete end-to-end service that removes the hassle and uncertainty, while allowing them to really differentiate themselves from their competition and offer a business-winning service to homeowners.
