STRUCTURE AND COLOR CODING

ENERGY IN COLORS rests on the color wheel of 32 pure colors, covering the entire color spectrum.


ENERGY IN COLORS principle and system

ENERGY IN COLORS rests on the color wheel of 32 hues, covering the entire color spectrum. Each of these colors forms a basis for a color family. Individual hues of these 32 color families are sorted into a consistent coordinate system, defined by the parameters: tone, saturation and brightness.

The color presentation in ENERGY IN COLORS meets their performance in colorimetry thus selecting and arranging colors in the dimensions: color tone, saturation, brightness. To achieve, however, an utmost proximity to practice, ENERGY IN COLORS modifies this, in principle rigorous metrological approach, taking into account aspects of real color perception.

 

Tone - Saturation - Color brightness

Tone is the most important parameter of color, as it defines its character. It describes the nature of its "chromaticity" - for example: yellow, orange, red, violet, blue or green. ENERGY IN COLORS was based on the selection of 32 pure color shades, with the aim to develop color families. In addition to these was developed a neutral gray color family.

Saturation is the second important property of a color. It describes the degree of the color - the ratio of colored to colorless parts in color.

Brightness as a third property attributed to colors, is determining how bright or dark a color is perceived, rated by its light reflection.

The rate of reflection of light is the amount of light (in percentage), which is mirrored by a surface painted in a specific color. The lower rate is typical for darker colors that absorb more light. Light colors reflect light to a higher degree and therefore have a higher coefficient of reflection. The reflection ratio of white is 100%, and of black - 0%. All colors with coefficient of reflection of less than 30% are not recommended for thermal insulation systems.

 

Color Coding

In ENERGY IN COLORS, each individual color is described with its own unique numerical code. Codes in ENERGY IN COLORS are set as an open system, so updating and supplementing is possible at a time.

For quick and easy color coding in other systems and vice versa, every single color in ENERGY IN COLORS is calculated and classified in the following systems for color presentation: RGB; CMYK; RAL Design System; NCS.

 

New colors and options

A good color system develops along with the market demand and its color preferences. Following this principle, ENERGY IN COLORS is presenting a series of innovations that make it more flexible in color consulting, planning and implementation. New 352 colors (collected in the new TERMOFLEX® colormap) complement and enrich the currently available ENERGY IN COLORS families.
