Freefoam, a leading manufacturer of a wide range of innovative products for the building industry in Ireland, the UK and Mainland Europe, has responded to market demand and feedback from customers launching a new colour to its popular Weatherboard style cladding range – Sage Green. A natural, soft shade with grey undertones, subtle yet stylish, making it suitable for any location, from rural countryside, coastal situations and urban city environments.

Marketing Manager Louise Sanderson explained “We’re seeing a high level of interest in our cladding range for a huge variety of projects. From new build developments, home renovation for extensions and dormers and also for caravans, lodges, home offices and summer houses. Colour is an important factor and we find that consumers are particularly attracted to more natural subtle shades. The new Sage Green gives our trade customers more choice and the opportunity to open up new markets. “

The new colour is available in the 170mm wide Weatherboard embossed textured cladding board and comes with a range of matching fitting trims to create a neat professional co-ordinated finish. Freefoam offer a wide range of colours including contemporary shades of grey and blue, more traditional cream and brown and now green, taking the total to an impressive eleven.

PVC-U cladding requires minimal maintenance once installed, a major benefit for property owners and a compelling feature for any property developer or public sector housing provider. With significant environmental credentials, being awarded an A+ rating from the Building Research Establishment’s (BRE) ‘Green Guide To Specification’ when installed with standard components, the range makes a real alternative to timber and fibre cement products.

Colin St John, Commercial Director comments: “We’ve seen a surge of interest in our Fortex cladding range with sales doubling last year. Now is the right time to add a new colour to augment our existing range and to give our customers a valuable addition to their portfolio of products and a real opportunity to develop new business streams”
