Perfect Fit Side and Roof System for UPVC Windows

Colorway are pleased to announce the launch of the Perfect Fit system for side windows and roof windows. This unique system allows a variety of products to be fitted to a UPVC window without drilling in to the frame.

The side window system is suitable for the new 20mm pleated system, 25mm venetians and now the roller system. This product is vailable in White, Brown and Silver. The Silver colour choice is aimed at the Velux market.

The roof system (Perfect Fit International) is available in White and Brown and has been extensively developed to overcome many of the niggles associated with conventional roof blind installations. Customer satisfaction is much higher than with conventional roof fitted pleated blinds, principly due to the much neater finish. Those customers who are worried about their UPVC warranties will be comforted by the lack of drilling into the frame to install these products.

Whilst the side window product is straight forward to measure and fit with the simplest of instructions, the roof systems do require some training for the measuring and fitting process. This will be available to Colorway Retailers and will be done in partnership with our supplier at their head office.

If you would like to know more about our Perfect Fit product please do not hesitate to contact us on 0113 2557637 or by mail to sales@colorway-blinds.co.uk and put PERFECT FIT in your subject.

Electric Roller Blinds and Glydea Curtain Track

Over the last 18 months we have seen demand strengthen for all types of electronic blind products. Whilst we feel the market is strongest with roller blind related products, just about any type of window blind can now be motorised as well as the new Glydea curtain track. We are pleased to be launching our own retailer program to help stimulate demand for this type of product in association with the worlds leading electronic blind component manufacturer Somfy.

Our program, which currently includes wired mains and low voltage systems, will kick off with the introduction of a battery powered/wireless control electronic roller blind and mains powered/wireless control curtain track. The lithium battery on the roller blind, under normal use and based upon an average domestic window, will last approx 1 year under normal use. The benefits are enormous for this product, with no retro fit damage to decorations and not an electrician in sight.

The Somfy patented RTS wireless (not infrared) system will allow multiple blinds to be controlled from a central location, even through concrete walls. With the further addition of a wireless timer and light sensor, an entire home can be controlled, giving an important extra level of security.

If you would like to know more about our electronic products and services, or are interested in becoming involved in the retailer program, please do not hesitate to contact us on 0113 2557637 or by mail to sales@colorway-blinds.co.uk and put SOMFY in your subject.

Sunwood Affordable Wooden Venetian Blinds

How many times have you been asked to quote for wooden blinds for a customer, only to find that it is simply just too much for their budget.

SUNWOOD is available in 50, 35 & 25mm slat widths, all at the same price and in 8 superb colours. Unlike many cheaper wood products the timber and components used in this collection are excellent and represent superb value for money. Simply presented in swatch format point of sale is free of charge. You need SUNWOOD in your showroom to maximise your sales time and capture those valuable missed additional profits.

advanCe Roman Blind Cassette System

The Romans are coming!! Well actually they are already here. Exactly how many roman blinds are made in the UK we do not know. We do know it is a lot. The biggest complaint about romans is the cording and the 'don't touch the blinds I've just got them right'

With advanCe we solve several problems in one go. Customer satisfaction is greatly increased when they can position the blind exactly where they want it. Your fitter saves time fiddling with cords to get blinds level, he saves time on site beacuse all the cording up is done in the workroom and his fitting task is then as simple as a 25mm venetian blind, which in turn impacts on your profits.

For those who have used track systems and have either been unimpressed or found that the cord system did not pull the blind up squarely, the performance of advance is another weight off your mind. Don't forget advanCe is a made to measure product. No cutting down. Just order the size you want and forget about it, freeing up valuable time to do other more important tasks.

Competitively priced to include white or metal continuous chain and a 4:1 smooth ratio gearing, all at no extra cost, this slimline rail measuring only 33mm deep and 38mm high will streamline your roman blind making and installation and have your customers recommending you and coming back for more.

Contact us on 0113 2557637 or by mail to sales@colorway-blinds.co.uk and put ADVANCE in your subject.

Investing for the Future

There have been some major changes at Colorway as we completed the final stages of a 40,000 investment program for Vertical Blind production.

Customers who have dealt with us for some time will know that we put quality of product and service first. The last few years have seen superb increases in our business, and in order to maintain and improve quality and service inward investment was required.

The main changes are the introduction of automatic Louvre cutting machinery and computerised sewing machines which will significantly improve the accuracy and speed with which Vertical Blinds can be produced.
