Colour Charts - what do RAL and BS mean?

In 1925, the private sector and the German government of that time founded the "Reichsausschuss für Lieferbedingungen" - RAL - (Committee of the German Reich for Terms and Conditions of Sale).

RAL's original task was to standardise precise technical terms of delivery and sale for the purpose of rationalisation. Today, RAL is the recognised competent body for reliable certification of products and services. They introduced Paint Colour Charts in 1927. These now cover over 1900 colours.

B.S. Standards for British Standard, derived from our equivalent - The British Standards Institute (BSI).

A range of decorative Flame Retardant paint finishes for use over Intumescent Wall and Ceiling Paint, Intumescent Timber Paint and Intumescent Steel Paint to protect, decorate and complete these fire protection coatings. (You must use one of these Flame Paints to protect your Intumescent Base coats if they are to be visible - they will not withstand rubbing, abrasion or moisture.)

Flame Paints assist in the control of fire hazards caused by combustible materials such as wood and paint in buildings by releasing an inert, safe flame extinguishing gas upon contact with a fire. Suitable for use direct on bare or sound previously painted non-combustible substrates (e.g. plasterboard, blocks, bricks) and Fire Doors (FD30).


When exposed to a fire Flame Paint finish gases to create a fire resilient barrier, protecting the surfaces from the oxygen required to sustain fire.


Prepare and apply Intumescent Wall and Ceiling Paint, Intumescent Timber Paint or Intumescent Steel Paint, and then finish with Flame Paint top coat (s) as a Flame Retardant, according to manufacturer's instructions.

If Flame Paint top coat alone is deemed to provide adequate protection – Class 1:

Apply to ceilings: either 2 coats of Vinyl Matt, or 2 coats of Vinyl Silk.

Apply to walls: 1 coat of Acrylic Undercoat plus 1 coat of Flame Retardant Acrylic Eggshell.


Tested to BS476 Part 7; Class 1 Surface Spread of Flame.

'Fire Paint' is a general term rather misleadingly used to cover both Flame Paint, used as a top coat to protect the Intumescent Paint beneath and Intumescent Paint, which is a relatively soft coating. Class O and Class 1 are Classifications used regarding fire action on the surface of the paint, whereas 30 Minutes and 60 Minutes describe the period of protection given by the underlying Intumescent layers of Intumescent Paint or Intumescent Varnish against penetration by fire.

We can provide an Intumescent Paint price based on the thickness of the wood or steel to be protected, and a separate price for the Flame paint, a Fire Rated paint used as a top coat, which acts as a retardent fire layer, producing an inert gas to protect itself.
