Identical Design Components, Tone in Tone by Wisniewski

It is almost impossible to have doors, gates and fences with a uniform design and, above all, identical colours. The reason for this is that the identical RAL ­colour has a different effect on different materials.

With Home Inclusive 2.0, Wisniowski has ­developed design and colour-identical components for doors, gates and fence systems. In 2016, the company was the first manufacturer in Europe to present components of the same design in Germany for doors, gate and fence systems. The strong horizontal lines and the graphite colour are characteristic of its products. Now elements made of stainless steel have been added, including surfaces with a ceramic appearance, and strips with a carbon or Corten steel appearance. Since colour is a very sensitive issue in outdoor areas and coloured components quickly develop a patina or get dirty, the colour palette must be able to withstand this special ­environmental effect. A further complication is that the components are made of different materials and are therefore coloured in different processes. Fences are galvanized and then powder-coated, aluminium doors are primed and powder-coated, and garage doors are painted. In addition, further components such as the Multibox multimedia column had to be integrated.

From an initial 200 colours, 40 were selected in the first step and 20 were then shortlisted, ­taking into account construction- and production-related aspects. The 16 ultimately selected colours are divided into four colour worlds. The Stone colour world stands for earth, rock or concrete. The Steel colour palette creates a similar atmosphere, but seems colder and goes well with glass or steel. The Earth palette delivers pastel soft green and ruby red shades.
