When uPVC windows first  came on the market  it was a bit like Henry Ford – “you can have any colour providing it is black “  – but  in our industry case white  

Then came along the foils  which is a colour  to the top surface – popular colours are grey , rosewood and golden oak  – although the first colour was woodgrain mahogany  

 So, what is a foil and how it is applied  

A foil is a form of laminate finish. They work by duplicating the colour and texture found on a particular type of wood. The pattern of fibres visible on the surface of the wood is known as the ‘grain’. Foil finishes replicate the ‘grain’ of a particular type of wood 

 After the required colour is chosen, the foil is applied via a heat bonding process, which fuses it to the surface of the uPVC. The fusion process creates a finish that is virtually unbreakable. 

If the foil is damaged it is now possible to make invisible repairs so if the surface is accidently scratched there is a solution. 

You can also have foils on both sides  or just on the outside.
