Cast Iron Guttering
For over 40 years Rainguard have been providing Cast Iron rainwater systems to the refurbishment, self-build, heritage and listed buildings market. Remaining a popular choice within the Rainguard range a Cast Iron system adds value, style and longevity to the exterior of buildings.
Cast iron started to be commonly found on buildings and homes across the UK in the early 1700s replacing lead as it was more cost effective and performed better. Traditional buildings such as cathedrals, churches and even some homes still have their original cast iron systems which pays homage to the material’s durability.
A complete rainwater system consists of multiple products including:
