Freefoam announced the addition of  new colour option ‘Slate Grey’ to its popular Weatherboard cladding range.

Specialising in a wide range of innovative products for the building industry, Freefoam’s Slate Grey is slightly darker in tone when compared to the very popular Storm grey and will appeal to those looking for a more defined appearance to their project.

The Weatherboard cladding consists of a 170mm wide board, featuring a subtle embossed wood effect finish and an attractive overlapping appearance.

The addition of Slate Grey will make a welcome addition to customers, with it already being available in a range of traditional and contemporary shades, from subtle Pale Gold and Cappuccino through to the more dramatic Argyl Brown and Colonial Blue.

Colin St John, Commercial Director, Freefoam, comments “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 sales increasing significantly 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.”
