Metal Guttering

Our Steel Gutter system is made from top quality Scandinavian Steel by leading European manufacturer Galeco. This system is available in a range of finishes including Galvanised, Black, White, Copper and Graphite.

Cast Iron has been a material of choice for guttering systems since Victorian times. Elegant and strong, Cast Iron Guttering when correctly maintained has a minimum life expectancy of 40 years, and probably much longer. Cast Iron Guttering is available in most ranges in either factory-finished Gloss Black or in a transit primer to enable you to paint the gutters in a colour of your own choice. Gloss Black is the most popular colour option. Our Cast Iron Gutter is supplied by Hargreaves, a traditional foundry based in the north of the UK who are the UK market leaders in Cast Iron Rainwater products and all products are manufactured to BS460.

SAVE MONEY WITH LESS FITTINGS

Unilke most other Steel Systems, our 135mm and 120mm Angles contain integral seals, meaning that you do not need an additional union to join the gutter to the angle. Also our unions come with the option of an integral fixing bracket, meaning less fascia brackets are required.

INDUSTRY-LEADING GUARANTEE

Our Steel Gutter comes with an industry-leading 35 year mechanical warranty and a 15 year warranty on the finish. Unlike other suppliers, Gutter Supplies hold extensive stocks of all of the colours shown on our website, so we are able to offer a next day delivery for all orders to mainland UK placed before noon.

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.
