Made in New Zealand, for New Zealand's conditions

New Zealand’s weather is not for the faint-hearted. From searing heat and harsh UV rays to teeming rain, high winds and heavy snow, we get it all.

It helps to have grown up here – it gives us an insight into what Mother Nature might have in store for us. To put it simply, because COLORSTEEL® is made here, it works here.  

Combine that local knowledge with industry experience, technological innovation and the ability to consistently deliver a product of the highest quality, and it’s little wonder COLORSTEEL® is New Zealand’s favourite roof. 


Inspired by our surroundings

Wherever you might be in New Zealand, you never have to look far for inspiration. It’s a land of many colours – colours we want to wear, surround ourselves in and highlight our lives with.

Our colour range is inspired by the stunning natural environment in which we live. It’s constantly evolving, and features a blend of timeless, traditional tones and trend-setting colours for every style and era of building imaginable. 

The national and natural colours of New Zealand

Our most vivid natural colours fly by us daily. Think of our native birds and you’re unlikely to see more vibrancy in the air anywhere in the world.
