A new, improved service from our window and door partners Crystal Direct

Crystal Direct Windows and Doors have been partners of HBXL for over eight years. Like just about every manufacturer, they found the pandemic a challenge. It prompted some big positive changes which has resulted in a highly efficient business offering quality PVC-u windows and doors, and aluminium bi-folds and roof lanterns.

As well as white, your customers can choose between:

Cream; Black/Brown; Agate Grey; Anthracite Grey (smooth and grain effect) and Chartwell Green

Textured finishes give the look of authentic woodgrain without the maintenance:

Rosewood; Golden Oak; Irish Oak; and Woodgrain White

Colour on the outside face and white on the inside face is another option if your customer wants a different look externally to a neutral look indoors:

Rosewood; Golden Oak; Irish Oak; Cream; Black/Brown; Agate Grey; Anthracite Grey (smooth) and Chartwell Green

The colouring process

A thin colour laminate, known as a foil, is added to the PVC-u frames while they’re still in bar lengths. The laminate is then heated to form a chemical bond that creates a hardwearing colour layer. After this process the window is then manufactured. The same process is applied to PVC-u doors.
