We’ll be working our Grey back to you!

2019 has got off to a good start for Freefoam Building Products’ customers, with the addition of Square and Ogee gutter in the popular Anthracite Grey colour option, to help them gain market share in a growing sector. Designed to complement the existing Round and Deep gutter systems and manufactured to Ral No. 2016 the ranges offer an exact match to door and window systems, giving customers the range to satisfy the growing demands of homeowners and developers. The choice of colour for windows, doors and roofline is now on average nearly 30 per cent of sales, with some window companies seeing sales of over 50 per cent in colour - and growing. Homeowners buying high end grey windows and doors do not want the standard white roofline - they want everything to match. Which is why Freefoam made a strategic move into manufacturing the complete roofline range in Anthracite Grey. Freefoam’s approach is to help every company in the supply chain sell more and grow faster than the competition. Freefoam customer, Alan Sutherland of General Building Plastics explains: “There’s been an increasing demand for colour, but the biggest growth has been in the last three to four years. Greys are the most popular now, particularly anthracite grey. Most customers want a full suite of colour matched products, which Freefoam does very well!”
