The Valero Steel Colour Palette

Dominator uses COLORSTEEL®

Dominator uses COLORSTEEL®

All of our pre-painted steel is made for NZ conditions.

COLORSTEEL® is Dominator's preferred pre-painted steel range.


Reduced COLORSTEEL® Colour Offering

Due to increased demand, our pre-painted steel supplier – New Zealand Steel has made changes to their COLORSTEEL® service offer.

As a result, for the foreseeable future there is an industry-wide reduction in the range of Colorsteel® colours available for garage doors, roofs and sheds.

Below are the 12 COLORSTEEL® colours that are currently available to order.

Should you require a colour outside this reduced range, check with your Dominator Dealer as we may have some residual coil stock. There is also the option to powder coat the door in your preferred colour at an additional cost, again please discuss this with your local Dealer prior to order.

Creating a Truly Flat Door

Dominator takes pride on producing quality doors and openers.

Some things out of our control – like the direct heat of the sun and seasonal temperatures can cause irregularities in the door panel surface (due to thermal expansion). The colour you choose can also play a part.

When we produce our doors, we make every effort to take this into account and minimize the effect of thermal expansion across the door.

For a more consistent flatter door, we recommend either a Sierra or the negative detailed Nevada, both produced from heavy-gauged steel.

Talk to your Dominator Dealer for further advice around your requirements and expectations.
