DOORS&WINDOWS HOUSEBUILDERS AND DEVELOPERS ONLY NEED ONE SHADE OF GREY Experienced property developer Mr Colin Goodwin has recently used Freefoam fascia and soffit in Anthracite Grey to create a striking contemporary roofline on his new four bedroom property. Freefoam added Anthracite Grey, Ral 7016, to its range in response to increased demand from builders and developers. The colour offers an exact match to specified window frames and doors. Situated in an established residential area of Grimsby, the property sits on a ½ acre site previously occupied by a 2 bedroom bungalow. Mr Goodwin explains “We wanted a much more contemporary feel for this house. The large windows on two elevations of the property were a key feature of the exterior design. I chose a grey finish for the frames to give a modern feel but wanted to make sure that everything else matched to create a unified sleek look. “I was introduced to the Freefoam colour range through my local supplier. Anthracite Grey in Ral 7016 was an exact match to the window frames and coordinates well with the galvanised rainwater system so made the perfect choice.” Call 01604 591110 or email us at sales@freefoam.com.

A high specification, bespoke project in Kent required a number of unique elements including the installation of two composite doors to make an impressive double fronted entrance feature with a modern Yale locking system for additional security. Additionally, the homeowner had stipulated two different colour foils for the installation with a bold Black finish requested for the exterior, combined with a Golden Oak finish for the interior of the doors in order to match the style of the home internally. With security being of paramount importance for the impressive privately owned home, the highest industry safety standards were specified along with optimum thermal performance. Since launching the composite door division earlier this year, frameXpress has seen a steady but significant increase in demand for products from the range. Ian Davis, Sales Manager at frameXpress comments, “The composite door range is so versatile and reliable with the safety guarantees we provide, which reassures our customers and in turn brings positive results. ” For more information on the composite door range available from the company please call 01952 581100. 12 AUG 2013 To read more, visit www.clearview-uk.com
