Getting ready for the ‘downpour’ of guttering work with Freefoam

  • 3 Sep 2018

Freefoam have launched a new version of its rainwater brand Freeflow® brochure, with Autumn seen as a time for consumers to get home improvement jobs done before winter.

A lack of rainfall this summer has seen gutters sit idle, yet be subject to big changes in temperature – this has led to the inevitable expansion and contraction, meaning it’s likely that a spell of heavy rain will show gutters have developed leaks.

The brochure showcases the full range of Square, Round, Ogee, Deep and Cast Iron effect PVC guttering and illustrates the major benefits of its innovative system.

Whilst guttering is often seen as a commodity, with one brand very much like another, Freefoam has created a series of clever innovations to raise the bar on guttering to solve the usual niggling issues – such as scratches on the outside, discolouration over time and call backs to leaks – making life easier for installers!

FREEFLOW CATALOGUE JUNE 2018 Final

Coextruded to reduce main cause of leaks

Each rainwater system is co-extruded with a white interior and a range of exterior colours. This innovation means while the interior is exposed to sunlight as normal, it absorbs a whole lot less heat from the sun and expands far less along its width and length, dramatically decreasing the probability of leaks and creaks!

Water-tight joints

Freeflow features pioneering long-life compressible seals, which create flexible water-tight joints when lengths of guttering are connected together. The seals allow gutters to move without making a noise and without creating the gaps which cause leaks.

Protected from factory to fitting

All Freeflow gutters and downpipes come covered with protective film, so they can survive knocks in transit and can be installed without scratches.

Colour designed to last

Freefoam is the colour specialist, as they offer White, Black, Brown, Caramel and Grey rainwater ranges using Freefoam’s patented ColormaxTM technology – an advanced master-batching process with a blend of natural PVC and pigments that are simultaneously co-extruded to produce built in colourfastness, colour variety, and reliable colour matching, all guaranteed for up to ten years.
