The standard Gutters (sizes available domestic 5" or industrial 6")
We use the industrial gutters for predominantly for larger roof surfaces, and will suit most gutter applications and requirements.
The domestic sized gutter is suitable for most houses and will be effective in most applications. Both sizes of the gutters get attached with serrated galvanized nails to the roof timbers using concealed internal aluminium hanger brackets placed at approxamately 1200 - 1500 mm centres. The ability of the gutter to carry rain water from the roof with the available positions of the downpipes determine the size of gutter and downpipes to choose.
The corners are mitre - joined, pop - riveted and sealed with a UV resistant silicon sealer to prevent leaks.
Profiled end-caps are fitted to the ends of the gutter and sealed with silicon.
The gutters are fitted as level as possible, the roof levels permitting, with aesthetics as first consideration and function and drainage as second.
Downpipes (sizes available 100x75mm, 75x50mm)
The downpipes are placed at optimum positions as required by the gutter system and determined by the accuracy of the roof.
Ground drainage is considered when placing the down pipes, as well as the aesthetics.
The size and the position of the downpipes on the gutters are mostly determined by your preference, while water volume is taken into account.
