BENEFITS OF CAST IRON GUTTERS
Cast Iron is an exceptionally strong and durable material - many original installations from the Victorian era are still in existence in the UK, particularly around London and the north of England. When correctly maintained, Cast Iron Gutter will outlast all rival products that are made from other materials.
As Cast Iron is synonymous with tradition, it lends itself exceptionally well to period style properties from one-off houses to Victorian style terraces. It is also the first choice of guttering material for listed buildings, so much so that many planning officers will not accept any substitute materials. As iron is a natural material it is also totally recyclable - combine this fact with the tremendously long lifespan of this material and cast iron can rightly be viewed as a very green material.
COMPATIBILITY OF CAST IRON GUTTERING
When connecting to other existing Cast Iron systems, the method of jointing on the old system needs to be checked, as some original castings had external joints and some were internal. If in any doubt, email us an image of the joint and include the sizes and we will advise you on the best way of making the joint.
Most PVC Gutter manufacturers include adaptors to half round cast iron as a standard part of their range. These adaptors usually feature a rubber seal which is compressed to make a watertight joint by tightening a PVC strap, usually with a nut and bolt assembly. Adaptors to Cast Iron Ogee are also available, these connect the metal to the PVC gutter via a nut and bolt through the actual gutter section and utilise silicon sealant to make the joint.
