New Solid colour charts from Faiview.

With almost 30 years experience in the façade cladding industry, Fairview has developed many solutions to help architects and their designs stand out from the crowd. Colour is often the key and, following customer demand, Fairview today launches two new colour charts featuring their full range of Solid and Metallic colour finishes for external façade panels.

The colour charts provide an easy way for customers to find the colour they are looking for or to simply explore the possibilities and find fresh inspiration.  A key feature of the charts and, of particular benefit to specifiers, is that all colours are clearly marked ‘MOQs’ (Minimum Order Quantities) and ‘No MOQs’ to ensure that this information is made available prior to choosing a colour for a particular project.

All of the colours that appear in the charts are available on the company’s popular external cladding panels: Vitrabond, Vitracore G2 (DtS Deemed non-combustible) and Vitradual and can also be used as a guide for Trimo and Ceramapanel.  In addition to colour swatches, the charts also include examples of projects where specific colours have been used such as the iconic Swanston Square in Melbourne which features a staggering 18 solid colour finishes.

At the moment, Metallic colours are proving a popular choice for external façade finishes as they can be either bright and cheerful or sombre and traditional. The Fairview Metallic Colour Charthas an extensive range of colours including “Gold Metallic” which is on track to become the company’s “2016 Colour of the Year”.

“We pride ourselves on listening to our customers and giving them what they need to make their projects successful.  I am delighted that we have developed a series of colour charts that showcase our full range of colours in an attractive and easy to use format,” commented Fairview CEO, Andrew Gillies.

The new colour charts can be downloaded from the Fairview website (Solid Colours and Metallic Colours) and hard copies are also available on request.  In addition to the colour charts, Fairview recently launched their BIM catalogue, another initiative designed to help architects to easily incorporate the companies popular cladding products directly into their BIM project design.
