Product Description

Palatine Gate and Railings Paint is an oil based gloss paint for metal railings and gates. It can be used on a variety of types and styles of gates and railings, including modern and older structures. The paint provides a durable finish that is resistant to weather conditions, water, wear and surface damage.

This coating provides a professional and high gloss finish that is touch dry in 2 hours. It provides a greater level of protection than most water based alternatives, ensuring a long lifespan and less frequent recoating, even when exposed to harsh weather conditions.

Our Gate & Railings paint is available in 3 colours as standard: Black, Anthracite Grey and Moss Green. These traditional fence colours create a professional and timeless look and are suitable for existing railings, especially in historic and culturally important areas.

In addition to our standard colours, we can also supply this paint in a wide array of other colours. We are able to produce many colours from the RAL classic, BS 4800 and BS 381C charts. For further details and prices on these colours, please contact our team.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any technical questions about our gate and railings paint. This includes queries about compatibility with different types of metals or previous coatings, surface preparation and priming, application or any other areas you may need help in. We are available by phone and web chat during our opening hours and aim to respond to emails sent outside of these times during the next working morning.



Colours Available: 3 Standard, BS 381C, BS4800 and Ral Classic range.

Pack Sizes: 1 Litre, 2.5 Litre

Coverage / Drying Times:

Surface Dry: 2 hours

Hard Dry: 8 hours

Overcoat: after 12 hours
Keep coated areas dry for a minimum of 24 hours following application.
Please note, drying times will be extended at low temperatures. Do not apply when ambient temperature falls below 10ºC

Theoretical Coverage: 12 – 14m² per litre.

(Coverage rate can be affected by such variables as type and condition of substrate, type of application equipment and individual method of application.)

Surface Preparation
On previously painted surfaces, ensure it is sound and non-flaking. Abrade the surface preferably by mechanical abrasion to provide a “key” and maximise adhesion of the subsequent coating.

Stir the paint with a drill stirrer or wooden baton at least 2” wide. Continue to stir during application.

Apply a nice even coat by brush or roller . Use a paint brush for cutting in. Avoid applying the paint too thickly to avoid delaying drying times. The second coat can be applied as soon as the first coat is hard dry after 6-24 hours, and should be applied within 5 days. If more than 5 days elapse, the first coat should be lightly abraded before the second coat is applied. Avoid washing the surface for 7 days.

Preceding Coat
For bare metal apply Carboxide Metal Primer. If the colour of the surface is being altered to a high variation or if surface is pitted use Carboxide All Purpose Primer Undercoat.

Subsequent Coat
For increased surface protection, a second coat is recommended.

Application Methods
Brush, Roller, Airless or Conventional Spray

Airless Spray: Output fluid pressure at tip 1800-2000 psi, Tip Size 0.017″ -0.021″ (0.43-0.53 mm)
Application by brush can achieve up to 75 microns dft
When applying by roller, use a solvent resistant sleeve.
Avoid excessive film thickness as this will cause through-drying problems

Please note: The colours on the product listings are only given as a guide. This is due to the fact that every computer monitor has a different capability to display colours. In addition, everyone sees these colours differently. Sample pots are available to order upon request. Always carry out a test patch (approximately 100x100mm) before full application
to ensure compatibility with previous coatings and the substrate, and to ensure the colour achieved meets your requirements. Failure to do so will result in a product refund claim not being accepted.

Surface Preparation
Proper surface preparation is essential for the success of any protective coating system. Before you begin ensure the area is free from any dust, oil, grease, old coatings and surface contaminants.

The preparation of steelwork prior to painting generally falls into two main areas; that of degreasing and the removal of rust and scale.
All surfaces to be painted should be clean, dry and free from loose and flaking material, dust, grease and millscale, etc.
Prime bare surfaces with Palatine Anti-Corrosive Metal Primer or Palatine All Purpose Primer / Undercoat in accordance with our recommendations
For non-ferrous metals use Palatine Fast Dry etching primer.
Rub down previously gloss painted surfaces with fine waterproof abrasive paper and rinse thoroughly.

Stir the paint with a drill stirrer or wooden baton at least 2” wide. Continue to stir during application.

Best results are obtained in warm (minimum 10°C), dry conditions.

Mix thoroughly for approximately 2 minutes using a drill stirrer. A wooden batten at least 25mm wide is also ideal.
Apply an even coat using a brush, short to medium pile roller on smooth surfaces and a long pile roller on textured surfaces
For spray application by either airless or conventional spray a dilution ration of no more than 10% is recommended with Palatine White Spirit by volume applying thin coats allowing each one to dry before applying subsequent coats.
Once dried, a second coat can be applied at full strength. This will prolong the life and performance of the coating.

Thinning and Cleaning: Use Palatine White Spirit.

If using more than one batch of the same colour, intermix before use

Preceding Coat
Prime bare surfaces with Palatine Anti-Corrosive Metal Primer or Palatine All Purpose Primer / Undercoat in accordance with our recommendations
For non-ferrous metals use Palatine Mordant Solution.

Subsequent Coat
A second coat is recommended for maximum protection.
