The new colour has a slate grey body with a dark blue acrylic coating applied to the top surface and edges and is being introduced following the success of this colour in Redland’s Richmond 10 and Saxon 10 tile ranges. Experience with these products suggests that demand for DuoPlain Blue will have a wide geographic spread with particular appeal in central and southern regions of England as well as Scotland.
DuoPlain is now available in seven colours with the new Blue being a unique colour in the market for this style of tile.
As with other DuoPlain products, the blue colour includes matching half round fittings for ridges and hips.
DuoPlain was originally launched in four colours (Rustic Brown, Flame Red, Charcoal Grey and Rustic Red). Tuscan Red followed quickly and Rustic Black was launched two years ago. Redland has found that customers appreciate a wide choice of colours, ensuring that this versatile product can be used in any part of the country, following regional colour preferences where appropriate.
