Dulux Trade launches a new version of its Commercial Colour Schemer Tool
Dulux Trade launches a new version of its Commercial Colour Schemer Tool
Dulux Trade has upgraded its Colour Schemer tool to make exploring colours and visualising schemes in commercial environments even easier and more effective.
The Dulux Trade Colour Schemer is an online tool designed to allow customers to create professional branded moodboards, all in a few clicks.
Tailored to individual sectors - from education to healthcare - it enables users to review and adapt a range of colour schemes created by colour experts at Dulux Trade.
Schemes are created around a chosen start colour, such as flooring or furnishings already in place, or simply a preferred wall colour. The software then renders a colour scheme within the selected image and the start colour or co-ordinating shades can be swapped in and out, or viewed in different images, until the desired outcome is achieved.
It is straightforward to design a selection of coordinated spaces for a project in one session as the tool offers a variety of room types for each sector.
The resulting moodboards can be saved and shared as PDFs or accurately colour printed by Dulux Trade and delivered to site, allowing designs to be shared with clients, colleagues or building users for evaluation and sign off.
Once a colour scheme has been perfected and approved, it can be executed with confidence in the end result.
The new and improved tool now includes sub-sectors, a wider selection of photography, pre-coloured mood boards and the ability to toggle between different colours in the mood board.
Paul Fleming, marketing manager contractor specifier at Dulux Trade, said: "Colour is an essential element of any space and we want to enable our customers to use colour more easily and effectively.
"The colour schemer allows users to draw on the expertise of Dulux Trade to build designs that create the desired outcome for a space and its occupants, whatever the sector or scale."
Paul adds: "The colour schemer is already in regular use by commercial customers across the country, and with the added flexibility and choice introduced with this upgrade, it will prove an even more effective tool for creating tailored colour designs to meet our customer needs."
Dulux Trade is committed to enabling the use of colour and the upgrade comes shortly after the manufacturer launched a must-have tool to allow professionals to match the colour of multiple surfaces to the nearest shade of Dulux Trade paint. The bespoke Dulux Trade Colour Sensor has been uniquely adapted for Dulux Trade to give far greater accuracy than other similar colour scanners.
The brand has also invested in enhancements to in-store colour scanning and mixing to help professionals to execute their final designs accurately, with new technology being rolled out in stores by the end of 2019.

Dulux becomes 1st major manufacturer to launch recycled paint in partnership Veolia
Dulux Trade becomes first major UK paint brand to launch recycled paint in partnership with Veolia UK.
As part of its ongoing commitment to reducing the impact of paint on the environment, experts at Dulux Trade with Veolia have created a ground-breaking matt emulsion made from 35 per cent recycled paint.
The market leaders have developed Evolve Matt, a revolutionary product made from the leftover paint that remains in tins after use, in a bid to reduce the amount of unwanted paint going to waste.
To create Dulux Trade Evolve, the brand has partnered with resource management experts Veolia, to extract and reprocess unused white paint from tins at its recycling centres.
In doing so, Dulux Trade has reduced the carbon footprint of each litre of Evolve paint produced by more than 10 per cent*, helping paint specifications to hit sustainability targets.
Veolia collects paint deposited by residents at their household waste recycling centres and takes it to its re-manufacturing plant. The paint is refined and filtered before being transported to a manufacturing facility where it is combined with new paint, re-engineered and tested extensively, ensuring that every tin on sale maintains the high standards expected of Dulux Trade.
The resulting product offers a beautiful white matt finish, perfect for interior walls across a wide range of projects.
Paul Murgett, Sustainability Manager at Dulux Trade, said: “With over 700 million litres of paint being sold every year**, millions of litres of unused paint are put into landfill or incinerated.
“Evolve, developed as a result of years of investment, hard work and commitment to improve our sustainable offering, is the first step towards reducing this quantity.
“A dedicated team of experts have been working behind the scenes to develop this product - which is as quality driven as it is sustainable.
“By introducing Evolve, we will help to reduce the carbon footprint of our Dulux Trade products, and help our customers reach their sustainability goals too.”
Gavin Graveson, Executive Vice President Veolia UK and Ireland said “How many of us have old tins of paint just taking up space in our sheds or cupboards? Now we have a solution where residents can bring us their paint and we can give it a new lease of life with Dulux Trade Evolve. We will continue to look for solutions to close the loop on products that otherwise were going to waste.”
Dulux Trade Evolve Matt has been five years in the making and not only underwent rigorous testing by research and development experts, but it was also blind tested by painting contractors, as well as successful small scale trials with the Co-op and Waitrose & Partners, among others.
The launch of this new paint is just one step on a journey Dulux Trade is taking towards meeting sustainability targets and creating a circular economy for paint.
Evolve is available in white only at present and will be available from late October 2019. Find out more at www.duluxtrade.co.uk/evolve.
