Freefoam Building Products has announced the launch of a range of rainwater products in the contemporary colour Anthracite Grey. With a 45% increase in sales of Anthracite Grey fascia and soffit in 2015 and a growing overall market trend towards grey window frames, doors, fascia and soffit adding an Anthracite Grey Deep gutter range was the next logical step.
Freefoam has created a product that allows customers to create a co-ordinated roofline with the new rainwater range offering an exact match to the already popular fascia and soffit products.
With a 77mm depth and a 116mm width, the Deep gutter is designed to manage the increasing levels of rainfall that are being experienced throughout the UK. Available with the full range of matching fittings including Union Bracket, Running Outlet and Hopper and manufactured using co-extruded PVC-U, the Freefoam Freeflow range offers a long-lasting, leak-free, no-fade, low-maintenance solution all with a 10 year guarantee.
Like the existing Freeflow rainwater system, Freefoam manufactures the new Anthracite Grey products using the co-extrusion method to create a white interior and darker exterior colours. This is Freefoam’s solution to the problems associated with rapid heat absorption and expansion of dark coloured gutters, which can cause leaks and noise when they cool down. A white interior reduces heat absorption and subsequent expansion along the width and length, dramatically decreasing the probability of leaks.
The Anthracite Grey rainwater range is manufactured using Freefoam’s patented Colormax 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 with a ten year guarantee.
