Classic colours that fit cottages and heritage properties well are proving a hit on more modern properties looking for softer colours that say black or grey. When asked by your customers about RAL colours & the popular Chartwell green, here’s the answer to if Chartwell green a RAL colour or not.
Technically not, but it’s not the end of the world
So the simple answer to the overall question is no. Chartwell Green does not feature on the classic RAL colours list. Taking its name from the family home of Sir Winston Churchill, the finish is often sought after for its very tranquil aesthetic and its inherently historical appeal that signifies harmony in the home. Unfortunately, not featuring on the RAL list, the closest comparison would be RAL 6021 appropriately dubbed ‘Pale Green’.
Though it might not be readily available from most trade suppliers, some, like us here at Evaframe, are prepared to go the extra mile under extreme circumstances. If you’re working on a project within a conservation area where are there tight restrictions in place as to what windows and doors can be installed, for example, we’ll work with both you and local council authorities to find an appropriate solution.
What is the RAL colour matching system?
As most tradesmen will know, the RAL colour standard refers to an expansive list of varnished and powder coated finish tones available to most products across the industry. For those in the know it operates as shorthand as to what colour the customer wants, saving precious time seeking the most specific of shade options. It’s widely used throughout the European construction sector, having been created by the non-profit German RAL institute.
What shades of Green can be accomplished using RAL?
For a less tedious supply process when applications aren’t as stringent, a suite of Green RAL tones are available. These range from Signal Green to Pearl Green, to extreme variants like Black Green and Luminous Green. If you’re unfamiliar with the minutia of what colours are available, Evaframe are perfectly primed to inform you when necessary.
