Colour is an essential element in the design of architectural spaces. An essential feature of matter that surrounds us that, by constantly relating to the light, often produces effects at the base of the first qualitative evaluation of the space and of the places in which we live and it is a decisive factor in the formation of mental maps and selection and recognition processes of spaces.

Pratic has dedicated investments and research to the theme of the architectural use of color: in our inner environmentally friendly painting plant we can paint our outdoor structures in 38 different colors, carefully selected to create comfort and well-being also visually.

We know with certainty, in fact, that color has important repercussions in the psychophysical well-being of human beings: Lively Colors represents the neuroscientific research that we have carried out through the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia and Iulm of Milan and brings out surprising results, making us reflect on an aspect – the perception of color – which at first sight may appear immediate, but it is the fruit of an extremely complicated and assimilated process over millennia from the human brain.

TIGER colours

Pratic launched a new and wide portfolio of colours, divided into 6 different groups, inspired by the tints of nature.

Desaturation and heterogeneity are the features of the chosen tones, which give harmony to the outdoor structures placed in the surrounding space. The colours have been skillfully chosen in collaboration with prestigious architects and designers, oriented to the new trends.

QUALICOAT SEASIDE CERTIFICATION
Pratic has obteined the Qualicoat Seaside Certification (License No. 798) for the very high-performance powder coating of the aluminum profiles that make up the structures of its products.

RESPECT FOR THE ENVIRONMENT 

The innovative Pratic painting line offers excellent color holding performance and high anti-aging standards: an eco-friendly solution to minimize the environmental impact by contributing to the protection of nature.

PRE-TREATMENT
FOR EXTREME CONDITIONS

The standard Qualicoat Seaside pre-treatment for all the 8 AkzoNobel colors and the 30 Tiger colors significantly reduces the salt corrosion risk and maintains the characteristics of the structure over time.

PRATIC CHOOSES CLASS 2 TIGERS
The Qualicoat Seaside treatment combined with the performance of Tiger Qualicoat class 2 powders guarantees:

  • greater resistance to UV rays and therefore greater color brilliance over time;
  • greater resistance to saltiness, useful in areas near the sea;
  • greater resistance to humidity;
  • easy maintenance and cleaning.

The principle of excellence is also expressed at Pratic’s headquarters – an internationally celebrated example of industrial architecture that has won major design awards.

Since 1960, handmade with passion

Pratic, a supreme expression of Italian creativity, was founded in Ceresetto, a town in the rolling hills of Italy’s north eastern province of Udine in 1960.

A new colour

In 2018 Pratic created a cutting-edge coating facility, giving the market the opportunity to create outdoor furnishing projects of any size and in any colour.

For architects. With architects

One of Pratic’s distinctive features is undoubtedly its ability to meaningfully engage with the principles of architecture.

Research and Progress- Pratic

In 2018, a collaborative venture with IULM – University of Languages and Communication of Milan, and the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, gave rise to the first neuroscience study organised by Pratic
