Colours

In addition to our stock range, ALUCOPANEL® FR. can also be colour matched to almost any RAL colour - allowing corporate colours to be matched with ease.

1) Above color samples displayed are for reference only, before ordering please double check the color of actual material.

2) To avoid possible reflection differences, it is imperative to install the panels in the same direction as marked on the protective film.

3) Please order the total requirements for one particular building in a single order, for metallic and solid colors, an optical change of color shade may occur due to the metallic particles of these lacquers.

4) Tolerance in color between batches: ∆E2.0 in accordance to ISO 7724-3 (EN 1396:1996)
