At Ryno we have noticed a significant increase in demand for our grey coated trim in recent years.
In fact, more than 80% of the colour-coated GRP and Aluminium trims we sell are from our range of grey RAL colours.
Grey isn’t just a popular choice in flat roof finishings, though. It also appears to be increasingly popular in architecture as well as interior and landscape design.
Why the rapid uptake of a colour - or should we say, ‘shade’ - that for so many years was called dreary, boring and even oppressive?
We’ve had a think and there are several possible reasons.
Modern minimalist architecture might incorporate grey features because grey works so well with black and white: acting as a bridge between the two.
Grey is undeniably having ‘a moment’: so much so, that grey has been called ‘the new beige’.
Grey fits seamlessly with the natural building textures which have been favoured in recent years.
It works with wood cladding, stone, metal and even greenery.
At the same time, grey works perfectly with older architecture: complementing brick, sandstone and slate without adding anything or taking away from the original buildings.
Grey makes a statement without making a statement. It allows function and form work hand in hand.
Coated roof trim creates a neat, unobtrusive and durable finish to the edge of flat roofs.
Colour-coated aluminium or GRP trims will last the lifetime of a building, with no corrosion and no paint flaking off.
This offers the client years of a smart look with little-to-no maintenance. And it will always look the same as the day you installed it.
