Impelling window profiles not only to look like wood, but also feel like it too.

Cool and cosy. At first glance these current design trends seem contrary to each other. But behind the words the two senses, touch and sight, are currents which move slowly and steadily closer. Impelling window profiles not only to look like wood, but also feel like it too.

RENOLIT developed the three-dimensional VLF emboss to realize desire for greater authenticity. The dynamic deep grain structure displays a brushed and sandblasted surface. The surface finish is linear and uniform, and despite its contoured structure it is also very robust. 

“We combined the matt and even feel with proven scratch resistance”, confirmed Franz Josef Weber, Product Manager in the RENOLIT EXTERIOR business unit.

Natural and refined

VLF has a very natural appearance and is therefore in keeping with current hardwood trends. Since the popularity for oak designs is unwavering, the company will be presenting the new emboss in four different oak designs at Nuremberg.

The light “Ginger Oak” woodgrain embodies the natural wood concept, whilst the dark “Amaranth Oak” occupies the other end of the colour scale. Somewhere in the middle lies “Honey Oak”, a woodgrain that radiates a special warmth, whereas the light grey sheen of the bleached “Weissbach Eiche” appears more distant and restrained.

Common to all designs however is their authentic appearance and a subtle silver shimmer that varies with perspective, which sheds a noble kind of light. 
     
When combined with solid colours, VLF is a stylish accompaniment to modern architecture and reminiscent of freshly painted solid wood. At Fensterbau Frontale, six popular plain colours were on display with this emboss, for example White, Cream White, Dark Green, Grey and Anthracite Grey.

In contrast, the flat matt emboss "Ulti-Matt" is strikingly stylish. "A gloss level between 1.0 and 3.5 gives the surface an almost sanded appearance." Leon James, Product Manager at RENOLIT's UK manufacturing site, is responsible for its development.

Produced in RENOLIT EXOFOL PX high-performance film grade, it provides an alternative to powder coating. Ulti-Matt’s appeal was displayed in conjunction with white, cream and anthracite grey and with the new real “Black". This exact black is also available with the modern VLF and classic woodgrain textures.

The presentation of the new product introductions broke new ground at this year's leading trade fair. As an oversized simulation the various colours were demonstrated in combination with façades and window profiles. 

RENOLIT also presented a selection of nine new colours and woodgrains live in product pillars. Carefully lit, the visitor was able to see the original patterns in all their details.

Professional Corner Pen from the original film manufacturer

The launch of the RENOLIT EXOFOL Professional Corner Pen, a small but important tool for window manufacturing was celebrated at Nuremberg. Using the pen, imperfect welds and mitre joints can be precisely matched to the colour of film-laminated surface.

With the help of the RENOLIT EXOFOL Professional Corner Pen, the welds on the mitres can be colour-adjusted.

"With our service products, as the original film manufacturer, we offer customers additional reliability" says Harald Neunzehn, head of the RENOLIT Film Service, which also distributes the RENOLIT EXOFOL Professional Cleaner. It is such attention to detail that has contributed to the original foil manufacturer’s success.
