Most clients opt for the middle which is the Satin option, giving some shine and definition to the steel structure, hence most of our examples below are Satin.
Balustrade below is painted Satin.
The bars below are Powder Coated - Matt Finish.
Please see below examples of RAL colours used in jobs.
We will add to this section over time, we hope this gives you an idea of what some speficic colours look like to help you decide on the colour for your gates and/or railings:
Blacks and Greys:
RAL 7042 (Traffic Grey) (Satin)
RAL 8025 (Satin)
RAL 8014 (Satin)
Whites / Pale:
Be careful with whites, rain on the panels reflect the light and can make the panels look grey where water collects on bars also dirt in rain over time can show on white painted structures. All that is needed to maintain the white colour is an occassional wipe down.
RAL 9010 (Satin)
