Alumasc Heritage Aluminium Rainwater Systems
Historically, cast-iron has been the only material capable of fulfilling the aesthetic and practical requirements that most listed and heritage building projects require, but Heritage Cast Aluminium systems, developed by rainwater system specialists Alumasc, provide a cost-effective alternative.
Manufactured in the company’s own state-of-the-art foundry, the Heritage Aluminium range perfectly replicates architecturally authentic gutters, downpipes and hoppers, right down to the sand-cast surface texture. Currently the only BBA approved aluminium rainwater system, Heritage is strong, lightweight and designed for fast installation. Well-proven wet-sealed and bolted-joint connections allow easy fixing, and the downpipes are available with or without ears. The material offers lifecycle economy, is corrosion resistant and is 100% recyclable, in keeping with Alumasc’s commitment to sustainability.
Gutter profiles are available to match traditional patterns – half-round; beaded half-round; beaded deep run, ogee and moulded – and there are five configurations of round, square and rectangular downpipes in various standard sizes. A full range of complementary fittings, including fascia brackets, rafter arms and traditional drive-in rise and fall brackets, complete a fully integrated rainwater package that delivers ease of installation, long life and considerable economic benefits.
The choice of 16 factory-applied standard colours using Alumasc’s exclusive Raincote finish, minimises labour costs further by eliminating the need for on site painting. With other colours available to order all ensure a long-lasting weatherproof finish with minimal maintenance and an estimated life of 25 years in a rural/urban environment.
The Heritage range is backed by Alumasc’s outstanding technical support system, providing advice, information, designs and calculations for every step of the project, from initial design to installation.
