Colour options

Choosing your joinery colour and coating style requires careful thought – a style decision which will anchor the effectiveness of your exterior and interior looks.

  • Powder coating is a baked-on coating that’s tough and durable and comes in a wide range of colours.
  • Anodising is an electro-chemical treatment available in a range of colours including standard finishes of natural silver, bronze and black.
  • Frost anodising™ is a unique two-stage surface treatment that advances the anodising process to a new level, providing your joinery with an appealing lustre free of ‘grain’. Available in a range of colours including silver, black, champagne and light, medium and dark bronze.

Anodised Colours

Anodising is an alternative surface finish to powder coating and offers a glowing matt sheen to the aluminium.

  • Use the below anodised colour ring as a guide
  • Anodised finishes change in brightness according to the angle at which they are viewed
  • Ask your manufacturer for an anodised colour swatch and view it in natural light.
