COL OUR Windows that make an impact 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. Convincing window profiles not only to look like wood, but also feel like it too. » » RENOLIT DEVELOPED NATURAL AND REFINED the three-dimensional VLF emboss to realise 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. 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 presented the new emboss in four different oak designs at the Fensterbau Frontale Nuremberg in March. The light ‘Ginger Oak’ décor embodies the natural wood concept, whilst the dark ‘Amaranth Oak’ occupies the other end of the colour scale. ‘VLF has a very natural appearance and is therefore in keeping with current hardwood trends’ Somewhere in the middle lies ‘Honey Oak’, a décor that radiates a special warmth, whereas the light grey sheen of the bleached ‘Weissbach Oak’ 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. Six popular plain colours are available with this emboss; White, Cream White, Dark Green, Grey, Anthracite Grey and Black.
