Information about Powder Coated Windows, Doors and Panels

The polyester powder coating process, also known as ‘powder coating’, not only provides an enormous choice of colour.  Polyester powder coating also provides long-term protection for aluminium glazing in the home and any commercial building. For large surface areas, the powder-coated surface is also cost-effective compared to cladding.

Commercially, powder-coated windows doors and panels are prominent in schools, hospitals, retail environments and many other buildings.

This colouring process allows buildings and homes to come to life with colour and aesthetic appeal. Above all, powder coating provides peace of mind.  Subject to the colour and process, long guarantees and service life of up to 30 years is normal.

Suppliers of powder coated services for windows and doors

For the homeowner or the trade installer, there are generally two ways aluminium profiles get painted before manufacture.

The first route is in-house powder coating by the systems company. Some have their own paint plants allowing them to offer a faster lead time on colours. Kawneer, Senior Architectural and Smart Systems are just two of these.

The other route is using independent powder coating businesses. Some of the best known include Barley Chalu, Superior Paint and Powder Coating, Vertik-Al, CMK Treatments and many others. The independent powder coating business is widely used by other well-known businesses in fenestration. Many of the professional paint houses come with extensive accreditation, certification and quality assurance systems. They’re also most likely to be members of ALFED, The Aluminium Federation, Council for Aluminium in Building as well as the most important, Qualicoat.

Finally, while not strictly the best route are other independents offering powder coated services but without the strict pre-treatment and quality assurance procedures of the professional businesses mainly serving construction and fenestration.

For extreme environments, homeowners can work with a professional installer for specific colour solutions and protection. One example is doors and windows in coastal locations, often requiring a different paint warranty.

Understanding Polyester Powders

While the RAL colour chart is familiar to many in the trade and widely available to homeowners, not every powder is the same. Here are just some of the major powder manufacturers making colour powders for powder coated windows, doors and panels.

Every one of these powder manufacturers offers high quality powders, extensive guarantees and trusted by both system house applicators and independent businesses. The colour range includes satin, matt and gloss finishes. Also available are metallic colours, textured surfaces and special effect coatings.

Aluminium powder coated panels

Widely used in aluminium front doors are decorative or flat aluminium panels. These comprise thick aluminium sheet combined with reinforcement and a thermal core.

Aluminium panels feature prominently in doors, commercial glazing and general construction. They provide excellent U- Values, inherent strength and are very cost-effective as a building material.

As well as aluminium panels, other products are fabricated aluminium products. For example, shaped pressings, insulated cladding panels and other building components manufactured from aluminium. Louvres, trims, coverings, fascias and even door and window hardware all benefit from the colour options and protection of a powder coated surface finish. Other uses for panels include within curtain walling and facades, covering intermediate floors.

Furthermore, there’s all manner of fabricated architectural aluminium products needing a durable surface finish and colour. For instance, louvres, pressings and trims consist of shaped aluminium sheets, expertly manufactured to meet specific requirements in construction that require the versatility and long life of aluminium coupled with the advantages of polyester powder coating.

Even in modern new extension, powder coated pressings and insulated cladding pieces cover corners as well as between a large patio door and a window above.

I contacted Nick @ ATS for guidance on what aluminium sliding door systems would be suitable for an opening in an extension that is going to be both wide and tall. He came back really quickly with very detailed and incredibly helpful advice. He is clearly extremely knowledgeable about the systems on the market and their respective features and capabilities. If you’re feeling a bit lost by the overwhelming range of choices out there, I’d definitely recommend contacting him.

After a lot of research to find doors that would meet our unusual size requirements and feeling increasingly uncertain about the best way to spend our small budget, I stumbled on the ATS website, and I'm so glad I did! I contacted ATS to request advice and Nick promptly replied with a wealth of information, providing us with options and relevant contact details. I only wish I'd found them sooner!

I've been so confused about how to achieve the look I'm after, and going round in circles with various window/door companies, trying to get away from the huge chunks of plastic currently around my windows. I didn't expect an email to a company found through a Google search to really help - but I was desperate, so I tried. I'm SO glad I did. Finally I have clear explanations from ATS of where I've been going wrong, exactly what I'm looking for, and a list of local companies that might be able to provide it! The response has excelled my expectations and I feel as if I'm finally inching closer to a home with which I'll be happy and comfortable: thank you.

It is rare that I write reviews, however after my very positive communication with Nick - enquiring about suitable slim sash aluminium windows for my project, I felt that a review was definitely warranted. I can reinforce the many positive reviews posted so far, Nick was very quick to respond, providing comprehensive detail, with excellent independent advice.In summary, great service, thank you Nick.

I dropped Nick at Aluminium Trade Supply an email re high security slim sightline bi-folds and their alternatives and he responded that quickly (and so comprehensively) that I felt bad I’d not paid him for his time!Nick Sir your product knowledge is outstanding and you are providing a level of service that goes wayyyy above and beyond expectations. I’ll definitely make sure I mention Aluminium Trade Supply to anyone I encounter looking for a fenestration solution 🙏🏼

We are looking to replace some old UPVC patios doors with aluminium ones. The ATS website is a great source of advice in an area where clear information is sorely lacking. Having used the website, I then followed this up with a number of specific questions relating to our search, and Nick came back very quickly with clear, detailed and very useful advice.I have been very impressed with both the website and with Nick's advice. My only regret is that I didn't come across ATS before replacing various windows in 2021 - I'm sure it would have saved me a lot of grief and money! Thanks again Nick.

My experience with this firm was exceptionally good and this is notalways the case as a female, dipping a toe into technical waters.I was spoken too with courtesy and at a level that helped me consolidate what was needed .On top of that I was given a list of companies and places where I could obtain the type of product I needed.I could not thank them enough and would certainly go there again and reccommend others do too.
