Universities Maintenance with Rainguard


A good rainwater system is a necessity for university buildings and facilities. Any faults or breakages in the system could cause structural damage to the building, which could result in the closure of the building. This can be incredibly disruptive for a university, particularly near the end of the year when exams are in full swing, as lectures or examinations could have to be relocated. A disruption for students at a time like this can be incredibly stressful.

If you’re in charge of a university building’s maintenance, you’ll want to invest in a durable and reliable rainwater system which you know won’t fail. Universities have a diverse range of buildings on campus that they have to attend to – modern, traditional and listed. Yeoman Rainguard have a range of products that can accommodate such buildings.

Aluminium Rainwater Systems

Aluminium rainwater systems are lightweight, making them incredibly easy to install. SL aluminium guttering is robust and long lasting, so you don’t have to worry about replacing them any time soon. XL aluminium guttering is suited for buildings with large or steep roofs, as university buildings often have. Extra width and depth on the XL range of guttering allows for more efficient drainage.

GRP Rainwater Systems

GRP stands for glass fibre reinforced moulding. We use this material to create lightweight but durable rainwater systems. GRP is an acceptable replacement for old lead and cast iron rainwater systems on listed and ecclesiastical buildings. The manufacturing capabilities of GRP allow us to replicate decorative hoppers and pipe decals from original systems so old university buildings can retain their heritage look.

Quick and Efficient Guttering Installation

Our guttering can be fitted quickly and efficiently over a summer break so no disruption is caused to your university’s term schedule. Get in touch with us today to find out more about how we can supply the perfect rainwater system for your university building.
