As part of a residential renovation project, Crystal Clear Bristol recently installed a Lumi composite door with sidelight all finished in Slate Blue.

“The homeowners wanted to add a modern, stylish finish to the property on which we had undertaken a complete window refit, and the unique Lumi door in Slate Blue was the perfect finishing touch.” James Mizen, MD of the Bristol–based home improvement specialist explains.

Crystal Clear Bristol has been installing high quality windows, doors and conservatories for almost 20 years, and has been offering Apeer products, including Apeer70, Modo and Diamond for almost a decade. After adding the Lumi range following its launch, James believes the products’ unique features make it popular with homeowners.

The market for home improvements is fast being driven by the homeowners’ modern and contemporary, design–focussed aspirations. Historically there has always been a gap between the homeowners’ desire to create their own grand designs and products that fit the brief, and so when Apeer successfully launched the ground–breaking Lumi System in 2015, it was met by widespread acclaim. Lumi features unique ‘edge–to–edge’ energy efficient triple glazing that is structurally bonded to a core of high strength, glass reinforced profiles. Unlike PVCU, timber and aluminium alternatives, Lumi doesn’t have the profile material on show from the outside. Linda Tomb, Marketing Manager adds: “In response to the feedback we have received since the successful launch of Lumi, we have continued to look at ways to further develop our products and expand the range. Installers see Lumi as a great choice for new–build applications, but we really want to raise its profile as an equally suitable product for refurbishment projects, and Crystal Clear Bristol’s latest installation is testament to that.”

Helping Lumi to meet the still growing customer demand for coloured windows and doors, Slate Blue is just one of the popular colour choices on offer. Joining Anthracite Grey, Black, Light Grey, Chartwell Green and Light Blue, the external finishes are all designed to better withstand the elements and resist fading over time. The internal finish is matched across the trims, windows boards and sills, 11 finishes are available; all of which are designed to complement the more traditional styling of windows and doors.
