Yeoman Rainguard Gives Historic Dublin Cathedral New Lease of Life
Yeoman Rainguard lead effect GRP rainwater pipes, clips and hoppers have been used to replace damaged rainwater systems on the historic Saint Patrick’s Cathedral in Dublin.
The present building dates from 1220 and the Cathedral is today the National Cathedral of the Church of Ireland, serving as a popular architectural and historical tourist attraction, as well as place of worship.
Architect John Beauchamp from Benjamin + Beauchamp Architects Ltd said: “We specified Yeoman Rainguard GRP for this particular project as they were able to match the design of the existing pipes and hoppers by producing moulds from which glass reinforced plastic replicas were supplied.”
Tooling and development was undertaken to manufacture a special replacement Hopper to match those already in place along with GRP lead effect 100 x 125mm GRP pipes in 1.8m lengths.
Lead effect colour samples were sent to the Cathedral where RAL 7012 Basalt Grey was chosen.
