Commercial Body Shop Coating Colours

IPS Paint Supplies offers commercial body shop customers an extensive selection of coatings that include:

  • Fleet colours: these typically refer to standardised colours used by companies with large fleets of vehicles. These colours are often chosen for their practicality, visibility, and branding purposes. Fleet colours help maintain consistency across a company’s vehicles, making them easily recognisable and reinforcing brand identity. They are selected to be durable and resistant to weathering, ensuring that the fleet maintains a professional appearance over time. Additionally, fleet colours may also be chosen based on safety considerations, such as high-visibility colours for increased road safety.
  • RAL colours: refer to a standardized colour matching system widely used in Europe. RAL colours are a set of colours defined by the RAL organization, which assigns each colour a unique code. These colours are used across various industries, including automotive, architecture, and manufacturing, to ensure consistent colour reproduction. RAL colours offer a wide range of colours, shades, and tones, providing body shops with a comprehensive palette to choose from when painting commercial vehicles. By using RAL colours, commercial body shops can accurately match specific colour requirements, whether it’s for fleet branding, customer preferences, or industry standards.
  • BS (British Standard) colours: these are a set of standardised colours defined by the British Standards Institution (BSI). These colours are widely used in various industries, including automotive, construction, and manufacturing, to ensure consistent colour reproduction and quality control. BS colours are assigned unique codes, making it easy for body shops to identify and reproduce specific shades accurately. These colours are often used for painting commercial vehicles to meet industry standards, customer preferences, or branding requirements. By utilising BS colours, commercial body shops can ensure that the colours applied to vehicles are uniform and comply with established norms and regulations. This consistency enhances the professionalism of the finished product and helps maintain brand identity for companies with large fleets. Overall, British Standard colours play a crucial role in the commercial body shop sector by providing a reliable and standardised colour matching system that meets the diverse needs of clients and industry standards.

Whether you’re aiming for consistency across a fleet or seeking to match specific industry standards, we have you covered. Our comprehensive range ensures that you can find the perfect match to enhance the appearance of commercial vehicles while meeting the highest quality standards.
