Composite door pioneer, Solidor, have again announced another industry first with the introduction of Painswick to their range, which now extends to 18 colours and woodgrains inside and out.
The new Painswick foil will be available on both the door slabs and also on the Kömmerling C70 and O70 Gold® door frames. In addition, the new colour will also be made available in a 62mm door slab for the new Solidor R9 range, which has it’s own 9 chambered door frame and dedicated threshold.
This latest colour has been inspired by the Cotswold town of Painswick and sits alongside other heritage colours such as Chartwell Green, Duck Egg Blue and French Grey in the range. Other more individual and unique finishes in the Solidor range include Rich Aubergine and the luxurious Mocha (Nut Tree) woodgrain. All 18 finishes are now available in all door styles including the luxurious Italia Collection, stable doors, French doors and also in matching side panels.
It’s an important distinction between Solidor and the GRP-based composite doors in that they use proven window grade foils/laminates so that the door frames perfectly match the door slabs in finish and these are factory bonded onto a solid hardwood slab. The use of a solid and robust 48mm hardwood slab is better for security and allows for better fixings of drip bars, door knockers and numerals.
Joe Martoccia, managing director of Solidor Group comments: ‘Innovation is one of our core competencies, we are the industry pathfinder in style, design and technical performance and the introduction of Painswick is another first for us. If Chartwell is too green and anthracite is too grey, the subtle tone of Painswick is ideal. Whilst the colour reflects a bygone era and conjures up an image of traditional doors on quaint chocolate box Cotswold cottages, it also looks stunning on our contemporary designs, giving subtle tones allowing the design element of the door to really stand out.
He continues: ‘Painswick will also feature in our new Door Designer App, now featuring 18 beautiful colours, a perfect way to experience our range of colours and woodgrains inside and out.’
