PVC windows coloured with paint from specialist suppliers AVKO have been installed in a major new housing development, Telephone House, Southampton.  This contemporary collection of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments were built by Linden Homes and feature PVC windows spray painted dark silver externally and left white internally.

Specialist sprayers, Spectrum Interiors used AVKOTE LE to spray over 13,000 metres of PVC, which was then fabricated into finished windows by local company DWC trade Frames.

Ben Dixon, Senior Technical Manager, Linden Homes Southern Limited, commented, “Originally, the planners specified aluminum windows for the project but we felt that PVC would be a better choice.  While we were keen that the windows were low maintenance, it was the thermal efficiency rating of the PVC windows which put them ahead.  Our only concern was whether we would be able to protect the finish during construction and whether we could repair the finish successfully if chipped or damaged, and the answers were both yes, so we are very pleased with the outcome.”
