Colorcoat® accredited distributors

Capital Coated Steel Ltd and Colorsteels have been evaluated and approved for Accredited Distributor status for Colorcoat® products. The storage, handling, processing and range of Colorcoat® pre-finished steel products have been assessed and found to meet the highest standard of quality and service for supply into the UK.

When specifying Colorcoat® pre-finished steel products for the building envelope it is important to consider the specification of material for other elements of the building. Flashings, soffits, louvres, facias, canopies, and corner details should have the same integrity as the pre-finished steel building envelope and the Colorcoat® product from which they are fabricated.

Tata Steel Accredited Distributors supply all Colorcoat® products, in all popular colours and bespoke quantities, to the quality expected by Tata Steel and our customers.


Colorcoat Partnerships

In addition to our Supply Chain Partners, we also work with a number of external organisations such as Oxford Brookes University, the SCI and the MCMRA.


Colorcoat® Centre for the Building Envelope

Working with one of the largest architectural schools in the UK, Tata Steel has established the Tata Steel Colorcoat® Centre for the Building Envelope at Oxford Brookes University to support research and innovation in the use of pre-finished steel in the building envelope.

The centre will help Tata Steel provide increased assistance for our customers in developing new cladding systems and conduct research to promote the use of pre-finished steel roof and wall cladding systems in the buildings of the future.

A key area of focus is how the building envelope can contribute to the aims of sustainable development, with work focusing on minimising operational energy as well as life cycle analysis and the development of modern methods of construction. One example of this work is the extensive programme of physical testing which has been carried out on the air-tightness of cladding joints. The Colorcoat® Centre provides an excellent example of how Tata Steel is working to provide better value for the market.


Development of testing facilities to assess air-tightness

Working in partnership with Oxford Brookes University, it is possible to simulate real life detailing issues and determine the effect on whole building air-tightness. This is invaluable in helping architects and contractors comply with the changes to Part L (2006) Building regulations. The results of testing have been used to provide more airtight building details, reducing energy-in-use for the client and future-proofing commercial developments from uncertain fuel prices and can be found in the RIBA approved Colorcoat® Technical Paper "Creating an air-tight building envelope".

COMBINED platform

The COMBINED platform is a new building envelope design and configuration plug-in tool created for professional architects, specifiers, contractors and procurement managersUsing data from the DNA Profiler, the plug-in works directly with the Revit, ArchiCAD, Allplan, SketchUp and AutoCAD platforms, providing an interface through which architectural professionals can independently configure and manage a system build-up from the full range of Tata Steel building envelope products. 


CO2 tool

Together with Oxford Brookes University we have developed a building operational carbon calculation tool that can calculate the effect of changes to the building envelope, inclusion of renewables and internal lighting and reflectivity on building CO2 emissions and Part L compliance; and building energy use and costs


Colorcoat® Compass

Colorcoat® Compass is a digital colour system, available via Tata Steel’s building envelope representatives and key Supply Chain Partners. It helps designers to colour match to a specific colour, search the standard and previously matched colours available, or search using RAL colour codes to make an informed colour choice for their Colorcoat® pre-finished steel product selection based on availability, feasibility and level of guarantee.
