We are unable to provide photographic references for standard PVC colours, as the shade can vary slightly between computer screens and relying on a colour match this way may be misleading. We are happy to send samples that illustrate standard colours. Please make sure we have your full postal address when you request these.
We do not make or supply woodgrain effect extrusions. Our plastic extrusions are manufactured from a self-colour rigid pvc material and the colour is solid throughout.External grade rigid PVC has additives to make it UV (Ultra Violet light) stable and suitable for use outdoors. This helps protect the extrusions from yellowing or fading with age and a tendency to become slightly brittle. The raw material used by Tubeway is equivalent or superior to the window and rainwater industries, to give the best possible weathering capabilities. However some colours are longer lasting against UV than others, as those with high colour pigmentation will inevitably fade faster than those without – because of this, Whites, Black and Greys should last virtually unaltered for decades, whilst bright colours like Reds, Yellows and Blues will start to fade within a year or so, depending on the strength and quantity of sunlight exposure. This applies right across the industry, not just at Tubeway.
