Crown Paints offers a range of bespoke specification services for architects, designers and specifiers. 

The Crown Paints Professional website provides a bank of knowledge on colour. It can be used to build custom specifications via the PaintSpec Finder tool, which provides instant and technically detailed specification plans so users can be confident in finding the best coating for the job.

Fire safety

Paint is a key factor of any fire risk assessment - with The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (England and Wales), the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005 and the Fire Safety Act 2021 all outlining the potential hazard of flame spread on painted surfaces.

By using specialised paint products, such as Timonox from Crown Paints, the risks can be minimised and buildings are able to stay within the current regulations.

Colour services

As colour experts, Crown Paints offers architects and designers a suite of colour tools, including a sample service of pure paint colour swatches, a Colour Match Scanner using ColourKey, a range of colour books, including the newly launched Interior Colour book, a Bespoke Colour Service and the Crown Paints Colour Fandeck.

Each of these colour tools is designed to make choosing colour simpler, quicker and easier.

Corporate social responsibility

The company also has a recycling partnership with Nimtech, a social enterprise providing employment opportunities for the hard-to-reach and long-term unemployed.
