Ironstone’s Colour for Contemporary Housing Types


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.

Its subtle sophistication provides endless opportunities for architects, project builders and developers to discover new horizons.

Its distinctive colour, when combined with stainless steel, lustrous metals, glass, stone, marble and other hard edge materials, conveys a strong and lasting impression.

Equally, when co-ordinated with bluestone, slate, granite and other similar coloured building materials, Ironstone® can convey a feeling of age and past grandeur.

Housing Type

Ironstone®’s colour versatility provides wide ranging flexibility for minimalist, composite, traditional, infill housing and contemporary housing types. It is also successful for coastal or rural homes, whether the style of house is traditional or extremely contemporary.

Product Application

On composite housing styles, Ironstone® provides a strong architectural statement when used for roofing or as a feature for walling panels.

On residential housing, Ironstone® is used for roofing and garage doors, and as roofing and walling on carports.

Commercially, when used as roofing or walling, the colour adds a new dimension to buildings, particularly in resorts, leisure and hospitality areas.


When Ironstone® is used for roofing in coastal or rural environments, the resulting link with the surroundings is obvious.

In city or suburban areas, Ironstone® provides a refreshing change from the standard roofing colours.


Used throughout Australia, Ironstone® is particularly popular in Western Australia, Victoria and South Australia.
