Our success has been based on offering powdercoat colours and finishes that no other Australian (or international) website can offer. Whether you need something that makes the kitchen “pop” or compliments the Colorbond® fencing, we’ve got you covered.

Our most popular colours are the simple and dramatic Black Ace and Flat White, with a coating that is extremely durable in Australia’s harsh weather conditions as they are made locally by Dulux Powders and applied by local professionals.

A wide range of colours are available, and you can order colour swatches directly from Dulux® Powders (Electro/Duralloy/Alphatech) or visit your local fencing/roofing/hardware store (Not Bunning/Mitre10!) to view the complete Colorbond® Range.

We can even custom make a colour of your choice. Big secret! See right down below.

Solid Colours

Our three most popular solid colours – Its not exactly surprising…

Black Ace [EBA] – is our most popular Black, providing zero sheen it truly looks vintage. Our highest performing, and durability of any colour available from us. If you need it to last longer than the structure being affixed to, its an easy choice. Extremely popular for customers who are uncertain about what colour they should go – simple choice is go for no colour :O

Flat White [EFW] – looks “creamier” in the photos. I can assure you that it appears rather stark, neutral, and without a characteristic of yellow or blue in the pigment in person. Highly recommended for Coastal locations (and Black Ace) due to the ability to pair with other colour palettes easily. Because its so flat, it appears “brighter” than Pearl White Gloss – Its hard to describe until you are holding in your hands.

Pearl White Gloss [PWG] – has a touch of “yellow” in the pigment providing what most people would call “Appliance White”. Its glossy, meaning any imperfections get highlighted a little bit more. If you think Black is too dark, and Flat white too stark – You’ve got this easy decision to make.

Metallics

We have never described our powder-coats as “Brass, or Copper, or Hot Dip Galvanised” to refer to the actual metals – We manufacture almost exclusively with Lightweight, non-rusting Aluminium, with a high quality powder coated finish (excl. Galvanised). The finishes shown below are commonly referred to as metallic colours, they look metallic – they don’t cost like metals.

At the risk of mis-interpreting a “Spork” for a “Splade” as Mrs. Parry brings up each family dinner – These metallics are a little better than the real thing as they require zero maintenance apart from the bi-annual microfibre clean. Touch-Up paint can be sourced locally to you, so you’ll get a premium finish without the premium price-tag.

Galvanised [WS975 or GAL] – Our most popular metallic is WS975-Galvanised – Created from a grey-etch with metallic topcoat. Applied in house by Barn Light Employees, hand-dabbed to create the unique grunge finish that is Galvanised. Looks like hot-dip galvanised however will age with the building it has been affixed to. 

Tiberius Flat [ETF] –  is a premium, zero gloss/flat powder-coated finish designed to replicate precious metals without the expense associated with. We’ve never called Tiberius “Brass” nor “Gold” as the colour is better characterised as a “Bronze/Green Patina” however that’s exactly what customers call it.

Burnished Copper [EBC] – Resembles a “Native Copper“, unlike real Copper (Reddish-Brown) this burnished finish won’t Patina/Verdigris (turn green) and contains a purple or red undertone. Very well represented as its own statement finish. In darker areas, this finish will almost look quite dull however dances in the sunlight when lit.

other metallics

We, (the staff behind Barn Light) like creating things, finding new toys, machinery, and under that banner we call it manufacturing – We’re always looking for the “next big thing” – Much like New Toys/Machinery, and the prospect of building (but not using) a “Man Cave”, we bring that creative energy into creating new fixtures, finishes, and processes. The following colours are what we call “Vintage” because they are either not that popular, discontinued, or requires a refined taste to appreciate. 

Venerable Silver [EVS] – A Tarnished silver that dances in the sunlight, identical to Burnished Copper (EBC) in it’s characteristics – the only change is the formula is just “silver” The finish has been designed to resemble your Grandmothers wedding ring, or that antique pewter serving platter you’ve seen affixed to walls for decoration. Its a dark finish, it is nothing like stainless steel! 

Medium Bronze [EMB] –  it looks like bronze, but doesn’t tarnish – just like Venerable Silver & Burnished Copper its got the exact same durability and benefits. We love Medium Bronze where installed in kitchens or above solid red brick walls.

Dark Bronze [EDB] – Resembles a dark earthy brown. Its almost black however the amount of metallic makes it resemble medium bronze under bright lights. The colour is best used as a statement piece where you’d like to emulate tarnished bronze door handles, or subtle metallic. Similar to Medium Bronze, this finish will look dark however dances in the sunlight when lit.

Things you need (*want) to know about Colorbond® Colours.

Powdercoats are not the same as paint(s). You can’t go to Bunnings and pickup a swatch and say “That’s what I want”, then order it from us – because we’ll tell you that paint vs. powdercoat is different. The difference in sheen, durability, and representation. If you’ve got a colorbond steel® roof sheet, fencing, or aluminium window trim – It’ll be the same so long as you select the correct finish; here’s a simple breakdown on the most popular finish from Colorbond®; 

How gloss levels are found.

Most Colorbond® colours have two sheen levels, generally they have a Satin & Matt or Gloss & Satin combination. ie. Monument Satin & Monument Matt. It important to understand what while we have access to the “full Colorbond® range”, that doesn’t mean *every* sheen combination possible.

Colorbond Monument Satin [CMS] – It’s supposedly satin however presents as a Full Gloss – If you’ve got a home that’s been built in the last decade or so, it’ll be Monument Satin, especially if you got the fence done in the same finish. It’s a dark grey, almost black and doesn’t have a hint of metallic in it.

Colorbond Monument Matt [CMM] – The simplest giveaway is that is a very minute metallic that will likely be accompanied on your window trims, door trims (or screen doors!) and doesn’t look *as dark* as its Satin brother. If you like shiny things, you’ll want this finish over Monument Satin, we personally prefer it (not because its shiny) as it has a flatter/more mellowed colour and not as stark in different lighting situations.

Surfmist® embodies qualities of freshness, purity timelessness and independency.

Snow, the mist from the sea and surf, pure white sand, and the billowing sails of yachts all remind us of this colour.

Shale Grey™ is evocative of Gulf coast mud plains, pale grey pebbles reflecting the sun, the ethereal grey mist rising from a surf beach, the silver grey leaves of native flora and the shimmering outcrops of rocks on the Great Dividing Range.

Windspray® is mid-strength, neutral grey with a blue undertone that brings to mind a gentle breeze, soft shadows and the misty sea on a cloudy day.

A powerful, modern grey with a neutral cast, Basalt® deliberately lacks the green tones that would soften its impact when used in ultra-modern designs.

Inspired by the purple-grey hues of distant mountains, stormy skies and the natural beauty of our coastal regions, Ironstone® has captured a new mood for COLORBOND® steel colours.

Monument® is unashamedly a city colour. It will emphasise the modernity of today’s architecture. It is a strong, confident, neutral colour adding depth and strength to the colour palette.

Paperbark® is a warm, neutral colour which is specified and used for a range of environments whether city, bush, coastal or suburban, across all states.

It blends with sandy beach environments, inner city spaces and suburban landscapes.

Inspired by the purple-grey hues of distant mountains, stormy skies and the natural beauty of our coastal regions, Ironstone® has captured a new mood for COLORBOND® steel colours.


Woodland Grey® is inspired by the depth of cool green forest, the canopy of eucalyptus on a rugged mountain plateau, the twisted bark and deep olive green leaves of teatree along the coast, the mossy boulders and ferns found in mountain crevices.

Manor Red® is a strong colour, set deep in the Australian psyche. It evokes feelings of the vast expanses of red earth found in the Pilbara and other areas of outback Australia.

Cottage Green® is a rich, deep green that bridges the gap between heritage styles and today’s contemporary living. It is inspired by heritage buildings of the past, the lush green of the country side, and the tranquil and peaceful qualities associated with this colour.

Deep Ocean® is a conservative yet appealing colour that mimics the richness and depth of the ocean, and the vast blue haze of a distant mountain range

BARN LIGHT EXCLUSIVE - WETSPRAY

Something our competitors don’t know… is that we can wetspray your new Barn Lights *any* colour you want.

Yes. That mint colour you saw on Pinterest –

Yes. That “1967 Ford Mustang Acapulco Blue Metallic with Clear Gloss” – Yes it’ll match your pride and joy.

Yes – Tupperware Green.

No. We won’t judge.

Prior to 2020 – We owned and operated an Automotive Spray Booth designed to spray-paint cars in 2-Pack paints. 2-Pack paints are the “next generation” of paint finishes and are sprayed on every automotive vehicle that leaves a car dealership. If you haven’t seen a rusted car out, its in 2-Pack.

Why do we know this? Well, next door to us was (still is, kinda) an Automotive Spraypainter with 50 years of combined knowledge (Father & Son) of automotive finishes, heritage cars, and purveyor to some of Australia’s most popular stock of vehicle restorations. We learnt a bit is probably an understatement. Unfortunately, we gave up the booth (hand-balled it next door) as finding wet-spray employees was a tough gig (preparation work.. is tough) and frankly we couldn’t keep an employee on $80p/h going rate to spray-paint all day.

We ended up changing our manufacturing completely to powdercoating as 80% of our customers just want “Black or White” and it was much cheaper to provide that in a powdercoated finish that 99% of customers were happy with, especially the turn around times.

October 2021 – We’re back at it. Brand new Waterwall (Spraybooth) is now in operations and what this means for you – We can provide you/r customers the service however it could (usually is) costly.

Here’s a basic breakdown of the cost of Wet-spray

  • Solid Colours: $249 (Requiring a single colour)
  • Metallic: $399 (Requiring Clear Coats)
  • Application Fee: $29 per fitting after your first three “free” fixtures.

Once the paint has been formulated (or we have it here pre-formulated already), we won’t charge you for paint again. As mentioned, expensive exercise but its a service you won’t find elsewhere.

940 Coppertone – Did you buy this bright, golden fixture all that time ago and need a few more? Just a sample of what we did so well all that time ago – and we’re doing it again!
