Q – Can I have my balcony powder coated in a colour of my choice?
A – Yes you can. In addition to black, white and silver which are available in our standard range you can choose to have your product in an alternative colour. Some of our customers choose to have their balcony coloured to match paint work or a feature on their home. Powder coating colours are given a specific RAL Number to designate their finish. You can view this colour chart here.
Call us to discuss your requirements. (Please note there may be additional cost dependent on your final colour choice.)
Q – How long before I get my product?
