What color are the fences?

Hello everyone, I’m Marco from Fenceshop, the Rete Plastic e-commerce site. Today, we want to answer a frequently asked question: what color are the fences? What RAL codes should we look for when we want to buy a touch-up? In this guide, we will provide a detailed explanation of the world of fence colors. Keep in mind that I’m not an expert in colors and RAL codes, but when it comes to fences, I can give my opinion.

The Main Color: Green

The predominant color in fences is green. This color is so common that, personally, I’m a bit tired of it since I’ve seen it everywhere since I was born. Anyway, up until a few years ago, manufacturers were not aligned on the green color. There were two main shades: RAL 6005 (a lighter green) and RAL 6009 (a darker green). Today, fortunately, manufacturers have aligned, and the standard green is RAL 6005.

Other Colors

Besides green, there are other colors for fences. In the past, there were rolls of mesh in yellow and white, but the demand was not sufficient to justify the production costs. Today, the prevailing colors are green and gray, but there are also other options for items like gates and panels.

The Main RAL Codes

Let’s now look at a list of the main RAL codes used for fences:

  • Green: RAL 6005
  • Gray: RAL 7016. It’s important not to confuse it with mica gray, which belongs to a different category and does not have a specific RAL.
  • Yellow: RAL 1018, a bright yellow used for standard gates in stadiums and playgrounds.
  • Red: RAL 3000, a very beautiful fire red.
  • Sky blue: RAL 5015, a bright blue, and RAL 5010, a darker blue.
  • White: RAL 9010, a pure white that we often use.
Final Considerations

It’s important to pay attention to the differences between the various grays, like mica gray and RAL 7016, to avoid ending up with components of different colors. In the case of mesh, there is less availability of RAL 7016 compared to green, but you can still find some in the market.
