BS 4800 Colour Guide

Along with the RAL Colour Guide, there are British Standard Colour Guides which are also used to do exact colour matches for plastic sheets (along with many other products used in other industries such as graphics, construction and architecture). There are three British Standard Colour Guides; BS 4800 (below), BS 381C, and BS 5252, which are all shown on this website. 

Please be aware that the colours below are for guidance only, and may show up differently on different monitors and printers. In order to see an exact colour match you will need to buy an official British Standard Colour Guide which can be purchased on our website in 'Other Products'
