Sometimes you need to replace a radius gutter (gutter that follows a circular roofline) on a renovation project which needs to be like for like. The original pattern for ‘sand casting’ of that specific cast iron radius gutter may be long gone, but we can use the pieces you have to create new patterns and cast new matching radius gutters for you. This is known as a true cast radius gutter.
Cast iron radius gutters from Rainclear Systems are available in four traditional profiles and primed for onsite painting in almost any colour or factory pre-painted in seven traditional colours. It should last over 100 years with the proper maintenance.
You may also be allowed to replace the original cast iron radius gutters with cast aluminium, which is cheaper, lighter to install and does not need to be painted regularly. In this case we can arrange for a new pattern to be made from the pieces that need to be replaced and/or from measurements and calculations from plans of the current roofline, then cast new replacement aluminium radius gutters for you.
Cast aluminium gutters are available in three profiles and in 26 standard RAL colours.
Even if your project is a new build, we can use either of the above processes or, if the project calls for a more contemporary style of gutter, we can cut and mitre (weld together segments of machine mitred gutter to achieve a given radius) lengths of extruded or pressed aluminium gutter to create the curve necessary for your roofline.
Modern aluminium gutters are available in four profiles and 26 standard RAL colours. It also lasts 25-40 years depending on the location and environment and requires minimal maintenance.
The result of cut and mitre may not be quite as smooth as the true cast method but is cheaper and just as effective.
Radius gutters and bespoke angles can be made to order in any profile; half round, box, ogee or moulded along with fittings to accommodate any situation.
