British Standards (BS) have colour matching systems to ensure consistent and standardised colours. We use them to match colours when the Aluminium framework for our partitioning systems and skirtings requires a specific colour finish. Framework comes in the stock colours of white, grey and SAA but sometimes a different colour is required. This may be to tie in with a corporate colour scheme or to match the external window frames. The BS colour systems enable partitioning sections to be matched accordingly allowing for a continuation of a colour scheme throughout the office.

Please note: the colours displayed in the chart below are only a guide, the final colour may be slightly different depending on the quality of your monitor/printer. Please refer to a genuine printed colour chart for an accurate colour reference.
