Weber loves colour
11 03 2013
The new Colour Guide from Weber brings a world of colourful facade opportunities to specifiers, contractors and applicators. A new range of over 250 colours are featured in the inspirational Colour Guide offering attractive synthetic finishes for both webertherm External Wall Insulation systems and weberend base coat renders.
The launch of the Colour Guide is partnered with the introduction of a new state of the art colour matching and tinting system improving accuracy and efficiency. The current alphanumerical colour coding system is replaced with memorable names which are divided into four colourful seasons: Petit Pois and Oyster Shell are featured in the Spring collection; Banana Split and Carrot Cake in Summer; Cappuccino and Portobello in Autumn and Norwegian Breeze and Frosty Morning in Winter.
"When it comes to creating an attractive façade our high performance synthetic finishes really deliver," says James Mead, marketing manager, Weber. "Colour, form and texture are the basic criteria that specifiers require to transform a building and bring it alive. We can help to achieve this in new build and refurbishment projects without any compromise in quality, performance and durability."
Choosing the right colour for a building can take time. Computer generated images or digital overlays on photographs offer an insight and a quick and simple solution can be found on the weberapp using the colour consultant to review potential colour choices.
"Colour appearance can vary depending on substrate, surface finish and orientation," continues James Mead, "and the fundamental difference in the characteristics of cementitious and synthetic products can make a difference so it's really important to request samples that show colour and texture on every specification."
Weber's new colour facility will be installed in two of their manufacturing plants in Telford and Ballyclare, NI, with production from April 2013. This localised supply confirms the company's sustainability commitments helping to reduce transportation and CO₂ emissions, whilst ensuring product conformity and efficient delivery schedules.
