Affordable Steel Guttering

Steel rainwater systems are the most affordable and initially cost effective of the metal rainwater goods ranges and it makes for a smart, stylish and contemporary rainwater collection system.

Galvanised steel is stronger than uPVC and when installed creates a robust system compared with plastic guttering. Rainclear’s galvanized steel guttering will resist thermal expansion and contraction providing greater joint integrity – ideal in the UK where the weather variations really test the gutter joints. Rainclear’s steel range is 20% deeper than other steel systems available and much deeper than most plastic guttering offers a greater holding capacity and better flow / discharge rates. The product carries a manufacturer’s guarantee of 15 years although life expectancy should be 20 to 25 years. Stainless steel gutter systems will require minimal but regular maintenance. Rainclear’s steel system is dry-jointed with rubber lined union connectors so there is no need for silicone. Steel is lightweight and easy to handle, 3m long lengths help installation. Rainclear’s range of bracketry has been developed specifically for the UK market. Rainclear’s stocked ranges come in a half round profile, finished in either plain galvanised or black powder coated. Six other colours are available upon request.

Steel: Eco-friendly and Sustainable

The lifetime value of steel is high as it lasts such a long time. Steel is also 100% recyclable saving landfill space and conserving natural resources. Rainclear steel has been used on both contemporary and traditional style buildings. Its modern style adds character to most types of build, including commercial buildings.

Aluminium: Long Lasting and Cost Effective

Long Lasting and Cost Effective - The Gutter and Cladding Company

Extruded aluminium guttering is the middle of the price range but combines modern manufacturing processes to give a long lasting, cost effective system. Stronger and more robust, these products tend to be more expensive than steel gutters and downpipes but far less expensive to purchase than cast aluminium guttering.

Extruded and pressed aluminium provides high durability, the material thickness is generally 2-3mm so it is much thicker than an equivalent steel system at 0.60mm. The material lends itself to fabrication which offers flexibility to meet awkward site detailing. Pressed systems are generally available in large profiles so is a great choice for light commercial and industrial buildings. In a normal domestic application a good quality aluminium system should last in excess of 25 years. There are a number of jointing systems available depending on the systems and profile type. Modern aluminium systems are lightweight, easy to handle and 3m long lengths make it an ideal choice for quick installation. Rainclear’s SnapIT range literally ‘snaps’ together with no nuts or bolts – a popular choice for the self-build market. Depending on which system is specified, it can be installed by a professional or an experienced DIYer.

Large Variety of Styles

There’s a great variety of profiles available in extruded aluminium gutters. The easy to install SnapIT extruded ranges now come in half round, vintage moulded ogee and contemporary joggle box sections offering a great choice of finish. There is also a range of 26 colour choices available in each material – a finish to suit all types of project. The lifetime value of aluminium is high as it will generally last 25 years or more. 80% of the aluminium rainwater systems already in use in the UK have been manufactured from recycled aluminium and all aluminium is infinitely recyclable at the end of its life. They are a long lasting, highly efficient solution for rainwater disposal and a leading choice for the construction industry.

Traditional cast aluminium is at the top end of the price range, more expensive than extruded aluminium and steel but generally less than pre painted cast iron. It is strong and long lasting and best suited to quality, traditional projects.

Durable and Weatherproof

Cast aluminium is extremely durable and a great choice for coping with wet weather or snow. Aluminium does not rust, any exposed aluminium surfaces simply oxidize to create a natural barrier. Rainclear’s textured black finish emulates the look and feel of cast iron but is substantially lighter weight which makes it much easier to handle and install. In a normal domestic application a cast aluminium system should last in excess of 25 years. Installation is straightforward with a traditional silicone and bolted joint, typically installed on fascia brackets, rafter brackets or rise & fall brackets. The traditional cast aluminium gutters come in 1.83m (6ft) lengths with pipe choices of 2m or 3m long making it an ideal alternative to cast iron. It must be installed by a professional. There’s a great variety of styles, half round is the most popular with Victorian ogee and moulded profiles also available. Cast aluminium is available precoated in 26 standard factory-applied, powder coated options for immediate installation.

Aluminium: Eco-friendly and Sustainable

The lifetime value of aluminium is very high, lasting 25 years or more. 80% of the aluminium rainwater systems already in use in the UK have been manufactured from recycled aluminium and all aluminium is infinitely recyclable at the end of its life. An aluminium system is ideal for those looking for something robust and long lasting. The aluminium guttering range is available in both textured heritage finishes and more modern smooth finishes so looks great on a wide range of projects. Cast aluminium is generally a more cost effective alternative to cast iron where a traditional 1.83mt length spigot / socket style is required. Traditional cast aluminium is at the top end of the price range, more expensive than extruded aluminium and steel but generally less than pre painted cast iron. It is strong and long lasting and best suited to quality, traditional projects.
