Powder coated finish

Powder coated surfaces are deemed more resistant to damage that can occur both naturally via the elements or from accidental damage that may show scuffs and scratches on other finish types. Powder coating colours stay vibrant for longer and generally will avoid the weathered look for longer.

At Vufold, our aluminium bifolding doors are available in a range of standard colours, all powder coated to provide an incredible, hard-wearing finish that should last (subject to location) around 20-25 years:

  • Hippca White (RAL 9910)
  • Anthracite Grey (RAL 7016)
  • Jet Black (RAL 9005)
  • Dual Colour Anthracite Grey/White (RAL 7016/9910).
  • Bespoke colours available on request.

UPVC, on the other hand, expands 2.5 times more than aluminium, meaning that at certain times of the year, UPVC doors can temporarily possibly stick.
