Guide to Composite Door RAL Colours

Learn more about RAL colours and how they can be used to match colours when buying windows and doors for your home.

What are RAL colours and what are they used for?

If you have ever completed any kind of home renovation work, or are currently working on a DIY project, you may require a four-digit code to determine a colour to match or complement your properties existing features. This colour code is called a RAL code.

RAL codes are extremely useful in the renovation world allowing homeowners and tradesmen everywhere to identify the EXACT colour with just four digits.

The term ‘RAL’ actually comes from a German group (Reichs-Ausschuss für Lieferbedingunge) and this European colour coding system has been around for almost 100 years, with them now becoming universal across Europe.

The Rockdoor range of composite doors comes in 28 composite door styles, available in 13 different door colours. So no matter if you’re looking for new front doors, back doors or even double doors, French doors or stable doors. There’s a wide range of Rockdoor composite doors available to compliment the look and style of your home.

How do RAL colours help when buying windows and doors?

RAL codes are used to avoid any confusion when it comes to ordering a coloured product, whether that be new uPVC windows or a brand new composite Rockdoor. From fabricators and manufacturers to decorators, they all use RAL codes every day.

To make RAL codes even easier, most now also have names which was done to prevent confusion if the digits were to become mixed up, with some popular colours being well known by their name alone, such as anthracite grey (RAL 7016), agate grey (RAL 7038) and sapphire blue (RAL 5011) to name just a few.

RAL codes can be extremely useful when it comes to choosing your new Rockdoor, particularly if  you need to match your new entrance door to the current colour of your home features, such as existing windows, garage, or cladding.

Whilst all man-made colours have a RAL code assigned, if you’re trying to match up to a natural wood shade such as light oak, Irish oak or rosewood these colours are often identified by simply their name. See our guide below for the nearest colour match to all our colours including our wooden tones.
