Plygene Gutterline from HD Sharman has been used to provide a gutterlining solution as part of extensive roofing works at a large distribution centre in Lancashire.
As part of a wider project to carry out dilapidation works to a 471,968ft2 distribution unit in Skelmersdale, Midlands-based facilities management and construction specialists Oakley Industrial Services was contracted to carry out extensive roofing works. This included the replacement of a number of roof lights and the introduction of an effective gutterlining solution in order to extend the life of the existing 15 year-old gutters. HD Sharman was approached to provide a solution to 1,400 linear meters of poorly maintained leaking gutters.
When HD Sharman’s technical representatives measured the project, they were faced with two boundary gutters and three valley gutters in poor condition. Each gutter measured over 280 linear metres, making the handling of materials on site a critical consideration.
Plygene Gutterline was subsequently provided in 56m rolls to minimise joints and remove on site handling concerns. HD Sharman also value-engineered a number of additional bespoke elements for the project, including 64 moulded weir overflows and 135 high density syphonic clamping rings to replace the original units lost over the years due to poor maintenance and cleaning.
Peter Clarke, director of Oakley Industrial Services, said: “The fact that the team from HD Sharman were able to supply us with these additional, bespoke, accessories was another reason why we chose to work with the Plygene Gutterline system on this project. It meant that there were no delays on site, thus saving both time and money. It was also something that no other gutter maintenance solutions supplier could do.”
HD Sharman says Plygene Gutterline is the only gutterlining system approved by the BBA and backed by a market-leading 25-year guarantee.
Mr. Clarke added: “For over seven years, we’ve consistently used Plygene Gutterline on a wide variety of projects, and it never lets us down. There is simply no other product like it; it fixes leaking gutters for good! The Plygene material is flexible and hard-wearing, and installation is quick and easy for our roofers. Most importantly, it stops the gutters leaking and ensures longevity because of its 25-year guarantee. I’d recommend it to anyone that listens.”
