Composition Design & Manufacture
Yeoman Rainguard GRP Gutters and fittings are glass fibre reinforced mouldings comprising glass fibre reinforcings in the form of laminations fully impregnated with Lloyds approved resins. Special formulations of laminate provide the desired strength and rigidity.
Shape & Dimensions
The gutters are supplied in standard lengths of 1.8m plus spigot. Other sizes and sections are available to order.
Colours & Finishes
All gutters are through coloured. The standard finish is a reproduction cast iron surface in Black, and is also available in any BS5252 (inc BS4800) or RAL colour.
90° internal and external angles; outlet pieces with round, square or rectangular drop as required. Left hand and right hand stop ends; union clips; silicone sealant; gutter bolts.
Non-standard angles or special gutter configurations made to order. Purpose made motifs to suit client requirements.
All Yeoman Rainguard gutter brackets are manufactured from mild steel flat bar, which is then spun galvanised prior to the application of a polyester powder coat finish. Where it is not possible to coat brackets in a matching colour to the gutter, then brackets are supplied galvanised for the customer to apply a suitable paint finish.
Gutter brackets are produced in the following types; profiled fascia bracket, profiled rafter bracket, and profiled drive-in rise and fall brackets. Client's own design available to order.
Should the location of the project be subject to severe weather conditions i.e. coastal environment then we would recommend the use of 316 stainless steel with a polyester powder coat finish. Other surface treatments are available to order.
Silicone Sealant & Gutter Bolts
The recommended silicone to be used for gutter sealing is a low modulas, reactive cure sealant conforming to ISO11600, available from Yeoman Rainguard.
Nylon gutter bolts, nuts and washers are available for fixing gutter lengths; these are available in Black or natural (for special colours a touch up paint is available on request). Nylon bolts are coloured using a dyeing process and, as such, the colour will eventually bleach out when exposed to UV light.
Yeoman Rainguard GRP requires no maintenance other than periodical cleaning out.
