From New Zealand's northernmost island, Raoul Island to the subantarctic Auckland Islands, Dulux and the Department of Conservation Te Papa Atawhai have been working together to protect backcountry DOC huts, historic buildings and other facilities for future generations to enjoy. 

To protect these national assets, they use Dulux Weathershield with Maxiflex technology to take on New Zealand's extreme weather.


The partnership began in 2013, and focuses on protecting and restoring DOC and community huts and buildings. In 2017 alone, the partnership contributed paint to over 500 DOC painting jobs across the country.

DOC's huts have long provided essential shelter for Kiwi outdoor enthusiasts and international visitors. Situated in a variety of landscapes from alpine to coastal settings these huts are often exposed to New Zealand’s harshest and most extreme weather conditions. They protect visitors who seek shelter, and this partnership helps to protect the huts themselves. The partnership also supports projects that protect and restore recreational and historic assets. Many of these assets require specialist support and technical expertise to restore them, and this is where Dulux is able to support.
