heroal extends exclusive range of products in Le Corbusier colours

Colours from Les Couleurs® Le Corbusier now also available in for roller shutters, sun protection and roller doors - Thanks to an exclusive partnership, heroal has been offering window, door and curtain wall systems in the colours from Les Couleurs® Le Corbusier since March 2018. In future the new colour spectrum will also be available for roller shutters, sun protection and roller doors, offering installers, builders and architects even more design freedom for private and commercial property construction.

Architectural Polychromy

"Colour in architecture – a tool as powerful as the floor plan and section". Le Corbusier (1887-1965) is considered to be one of the most famous architects of the 20th century and continues to have a profound influence on modern architecture today. During his lifetime, he created numerous urban development plans and built some pioneering buildings.

It is for good reason that 17 of his buildings were added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2016, attesting to the globalisation of the modern movement. Drawing on his experiences working with structure, volume and colour, he developed two colour collections in 1931 and 1959: Architectural Polychromy.


The two "colour keyboards" consist of a total of 63 colour shades from nine colour groups, based on natural primary colours that evoke associations with our environment such as space, sky, walls, sand and landscape. Each colour is eminently architectural and naturally harmonious. All colour shades can be combined with one another in impressive fashion and embody spatial effects: "Colour modifies space, classifies objects, has a physiological effect on us and reacts strongly to our sensibilities" (Le Corbusier). Through this exclusive partnership, heroal now offers this colour spectrum for windows, doors and curtain walls, as well as roller shutters, sun protection and roller doors.

High-quality coating technology

heroal has been setting international standards in the coating of aluminium for decades. heroal surface coating allows for design variations that are not possible with other materials, and offers coating variations for every application. Windows, doors and curtain wall systems, as well as aluminium guide rails, are coated with heroal’s highly weather-resistant hwr powder coating in the company’s own plant, while the especially durable and extremely weather-resistant heroal 2-layer thick coating is used for roller shutter, sun protection and roller door system solutions. All the surface coatings are notable for their familiar heroal quality, helping to maintain the colour stability, gloss retention and durability of the various systems.
