Wavin Osma

Anthracite Grey Guttering

Wavin has updated its Osma DeepLine semi-elliptical guttering range, with an ‘anthracite grey’ (RAL 7016) addition. The product matches the colour scheme being used for external windows and doors across the UK.

Steve Skeldon, Above Ground Product Manager at Wavin, said: “Grey external accents on homes and buildings have been growing in popularity and are now on-trend; in fact research suggests that anthracite grey is now the most popular shade of grey for new windows and doors in the UK. By colour-matching prominent yet peripheral features like guttering, buildings can really be brought to life.”
