When it comes to choosing your roller shutter colours, there are many options. In the UK, roller shutters are available in a variety of colors and finishes to suit different aesthetic and functional needs. Here are the main options:


Standard RAL Colours: Roller shutters can be customised with any colour from the RAL colour chart, offering a wide spectrum of hues from vivid whites to bold and bright colours, enabling businesses to match their branding or enhance visibility (UK Roller Shutters).

Popular Shades: Commonly chosen colours include various shades of white, grey, and black. Whites and creams are particularly popular for a classic look, while greys and blacks offer a more modern aesthetic.


Galvanized Steel: Provides excellent weather resistance and durability, ideal for industrial and commercial settings. The galvanisation process coats the steel with zinc, preventing rust and extending the lifespan of the shutter.

Powder Coated: This finish allows for a high-quality, durable coating in any colour, making it possible to personalise the shutters to match the building’s exterior or corporate branding. Powder coating is known for its robustness and long-lasting appearance.

Anodized Aluminium: Offers a highly durable finish that enhances the natural strength of the aluminium. This process makes the shutters resistant to flaking, chipping, or peeling and provides a sleek, modern look available in both shiny and matte finishes.

Stainless Steel: Known for its sleek, modern appearance and high resistance to rust, stainless steel is ideal for both exterior and interior applications, especially in environments that require frequent cleaning, like hospitals and kitchens.

These options ensure that businesses and homeowners can select roller shutters that not only provide the necessary security and functionality but also enhance the aesthetic appeal of their properties. If you have any questions about our colours and finishes then our team can help you during the site survey.
