Brillux Scala is the color planning system for rooms and facades. All 1,514 Scala color shades were carefully selected based on aspects relevant in practice. The color shades have been selected based on the standards of colorimetry – but the selection has been modified according to perception. This ensures that the color area develops extremely evenly through all spectral ranges. This makes the design with Brillux Scala extremely easy and reliable.
The color planning system is based on the Scala color wheel with 32 pure bright shades covering the entire color spectrum. Each of these color shades in the basis for a color family.
The individual color shades are sorted according to the three basic properties color shade, saturation and lightness. The presentation of the Scala color shades therefore follows the standards of colorimetry. To achieve maximum practical benefit, Brillux modified this strict measurement system to include perception-related aspects.
Color shade, saturation and lightness are the three parameters on which the code of the Scala color shades is based. Each individual color shade is clearly identified by the Scala name code as a six-digit sequence. This code is designed as a open system to enable updates and additions. The first two digits describe the color shade family. The 32 color families are coded in groups of three with the digits 03 to 96. The two subsequent digits provide information on the color shade saturation. The last two digits define its lightness.
Complex design tasks or manageable objects – the Scala tools always offer the perfect solution.
The color charts contain comprehensive, practice-orientated color shade selections and are particularly suited for customer consultations and for use on the object.

Whether for optimal assessment of a color shade or for producing models and drafts – large-scale color samples offer many advantages. Brillux therefore offers each of the 1514 Scala color shades as a full-format coated color shade sheet in the format DIN A4 or DIN long.
To ensure that Adobe Photoshop, Autodesk AutoCAD or other programs always have quick access to the entire Scala color spectrum, all Scala color shades are provided as program-specific files with RGB or CMYK color values.
Scala digital also helps to find the right color shade when planning and designing. The software offers a wide range of functions for this purpose: determines color shade values or searches for the closest color shades in the color areas Scala, RAL Classic, RAL Design and NCS and much more.
