New Fortex® Natura cladding from Freefoam: ‘Just beautiful’

Unique digital print gives premium natural wood effect – with 10-year guarantee

New from Freefoam Building Products, Fortex® Natura cladding is manufactured using cutting-edge digital printing technology, so it’s virtually indistinguishable from natural wood.


“It has the look and feel of quality planed timber,” says Colin St John, Freefoam’s Commercial Director. “But unlike natural wood, it doesn’t fade, and is guaranteed to look as good in 10 years as it does the day it’s installed. The development of this unique cladding product has taken a significant investment of time and equipment, but the results are beyond our expectations.”


Colin adds: “The feedback from our stockist and Registered Installer customers so far has been incredibly positive, describing it as ‘just beautiful’ – and a market-disrupting product.”


There are six wood finishes available in the Fortex® Natura range: Aged Padauk, Barnwood Oak, Grey Cedar, Greyed Oak, Malted Oak, and Siberian Larch. Each features a non-repeating pattern from expertly edited photographs of real timber. This is printed onto Freefoam’s foam PVC cladding boards using a special ink for external use, and a laquer topcoat for extreme durability.


A complete set of aluminium finishing trims is available in colours that perfectly complement the six cladding options, all RAL number referenced for accurate matching to windows, doors, and roofline.


The premium V-groove cladding can be installed horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. Low maintenance, it’s also easy to store, fit and handle, and is 100% recyclable.


Fortex® Natura is supported with a brochure, display boards and hand samples. Call Freefoam on 0800 002 9903 to find out more.
