RAL Colour Chart VIEW HERE.
Please note that the RAL range is a range of colours and NOT a range of paint types or finishes. It is important to establish the correct paint for your intended use and then ascertain its colour availability. Our site displays the standard colours according to the Classic RAL System. RAL is used for information defining standard colours for paint and coatings and is the most popular Central European Colour Standard used today. RAL colours are used in architecture, construction, industry and road safety. The RAL paint colour range is offered in a limited number of products and a minimum of 10.0 Litres per colour.
British Standard BS 4800 Colour Chart VIEW HERE.
This range includes additional colours that are mostly brighter to reflect the latest trends for public buildings and spaces. These paint colours are widely recognised throughout the UK and are often used to meet safety, legal or contractual requirements. Includes Black and White.
British Standard BS 381C Colour Chart VIEW HERE.
The British Standard 381C colour paint range is offered in a limited number of products and orders are subject to a minimum of 25.0 Litres per colour. BS381C is a range of special and mixed colours, particularly for military use.
Increasingly there is a demand for individual or unusual colour matching by the consumer, as well as a requirement for the matching of corporate colours for large organisations. We also continue to see a need for matching paint colours with the surrounding environment. Most paint manufacturers will only mix bespoke colours in large volumes. We can mix colours in quantities as low as 50.0 Litres in many of our coatings and finishes. We do however require a sample of the colour that you would like us to match. We will confirm our ability (or otherwise) to match the colour and sheen levels upon receipt.
Please note we do not offer a colour consultancy service. If this is something you feel you would benefit from, we recommend talking to a local designer or architect.
NOTE: Paint names may vary by manufacturer. The numeric code is the de-facto identifier and should be quoted with all orders. Certain manufacturers’ colours are copyrighted, thus only a near match can be offered. Always ensure that any mixed colours are always applied from the same batch and that you purchase enough to complete the job in full. In case a second batch needs to be purchased for the completion of the second coat, or the surface area to be painted has changed, the two batches should be boxed together for continuity of colour. A small amount should be left with the customer to allow for touching up any damage to the surface at a future date. This should be marked with the product reference, date and colour. Please feel free to call us about these services on 01202 295570.
