Connect - Warm, earth-based colours that reinforce a connection with nature

Architecture with a connection to the outdoors has become vital to our wellbeing. Technology has provided us with a new freedom; we no longer need to live in the cities and the suburbs to work – allowing the move to rural settings where we can reconnect with nature, whilst conversely the workplace is embracing the feeling of outdoors inside to attract employees back to the workplace.


We are now looking for sustainability, authenticity and meaning in the items we choose to connect to and surround ourselves with.


The Connect Powder Coat Palette

The Connect powder coat palette features the soft neutrals of Duralloy Whisper White Matt and Duralloy Grey Nurse Gloss, the authentic stone finish of Duratec Elements2 Granite Flat and the earthy warmth of Duralloy Territory Red Matt.

Balance - oceanic blues that foster stillness and calm

With so much uncertainty, there is a need to restore balance and a sense of calm in our lives. In a post-pandemic world, some of us are needing the reassurance of rules and parameters. Beauty that is underpinned by structure reassures us. The allure of the ocean and its untapped potential draws us in and allows its calming effect to wash over us.


Elegant and refined, the harmonious lines of waves and the movement of the sea inspire colour and pattern in our interiors.


The Balance Powder Coat Palette

The Balance Powder Coat palette features the delicate pastel of Duratec Eternity Linen Pearl Satin, the subtle pink of Duralloy Pink Sand Matt, the marine grey of Duralloy Transformer Grey Gloss and the oceanic hue of Duralloy Navy Blue Gloss.

Revive - eclectic brighter hues to encourage those moments of pure escapism.

Emerging from challenging times, we look for lightness to replace the heaviness and to revive our spirits through disruptive joy. To fully heal we need release, so we seek freedom, celebration of reunions and an abandonment of the rules.


Design is empowered as we unleash our creativity and set ourselves free from constraint, resulting in a joyful collision of colour and pattern.


The Wonder Powder Coat Palette

The Revive colour palette is creative and joyful, featuring the playful Duratec Intensity Tomcat Gloss, and the vibrant Duratec Intensity colours of Lemon Yellow Gloss and Alphatec Space Blue Gloss. The palette also features Duralloy Lexicon® Quarter Matt, a cool fresh white perfect for modern open plan spaces.
