Grey is here to stay

Manufacturer of a wide range of products for the building industry in Ireland, the UK and Mainland Europe, Freefoam Building Products has announced an addition to its Weatherboard cladding range with the introduction of a new colour option – Slate Grey.

The Weatherboard cladding is a 170mm wide board featuring an embossed wood effect finish and an overlapping appearance to create a ‘New England’ look. Already available in a range of traditional and contemporary shades, from subtle pale gold and cappuccino through to more dramatic argyl brown and colonial blue the addition of Slate Grey will make a welcome addition to customers.

Colin St John, commercial director of Freefoam said: “Grey is a major trend in building products, particularly windows, doors and roofline – the colour grey tops all our growth statistics across the product range. We’ve seen a surge in our Fortex cladding range with year on year.

“Our analysis shows that Storm Grey is our most popular shade in the Weatherboard range with Slate Grey topping the charts in the Double Shiplap range, – the introduction of Slate Grey Weatherboard makes strong commercial sense.”
