Get creative with colour

Freefoam has launched a brand new online tool to help choose the colour of fascia, soffit and guttering that is right for any construction project.

A clear image of a roofline installation enables users to simply select from a colour swatch and get an instant representation of each colour on every element including fascia, soffit and guttering. With a range of eight solid colours and choice of eight woodgrain finishes, Freefoam now gives customers the ability to bring colour to life online.

It says that, whilst colour has become an integral part of many development projects, clients can still be conservative in their choice and that it’s not always easy to visualise how a finished product will look. This tool offers the ability to experiment with any number of different colour options, allowing the boundaries to be pushed and an informed decision to be made.

Colin St John, Freefoam commercial director, explained: “With the launch of this online visualiser we have put colour choice at the fingertips of specifiers and housebuilders. This, coupled with our manufacturing capability to produce colour with very short lead times, makes colour roofline a straight forward realistic option.”

Recognising the growing importance of colour for architects, specifiers, and house developers, Freefoam seized the opportunity 15 years ago and generated its patented Colormax technology. Careful selections of pigments for the colour skin are simultaneously co-extruded with the white foam core to produce a hard wearing long lasting finish. The Freefoam colour range includes 10mm & 18mm fascia boards and a range of soffit boards in a choice of styles, along with all the necessary colour matched accessories, trims and fixings.
