The benefits of cast iron have been recognised and used since the early days of the Industrial Revolution and opened the way for the development of many new products.

Today we still have a use for a number of these in their truest forms. Cast iron guttering and downpipes have been the choice for effective rainwater systems since they became popular in Victorian times.

While in the 21st Century there are a plethora of materials available to manufacture guttering systems from, cast iron is the only suitable choice for Period and Historic properties.

Cast Iron Key Benefits

Cast iron is suited to rainwater systems. It offers many benefits to the customer and the contractor, which include:

  • Strength and durability

    Cast iron can withstand the rigours of on-site handling, mechanical de-blocking and vandalism. Manufactured to BS460
  • Appearance

    With an un-matched aesthetic, and retaining the traditional character of the building, cast iron can be finished in any colour to match the property.
  • Long-life

    When correctly installed cast iron drainage systems will last the life of the building, whether domestic, public, industrial or commercial.
  • Low maintenance

    Cast iron requires little ongoing maintenance, annual inspections are recommended, but remedial action is rarely required.
  • Design capability

    Cast iron can meet the needs of restoration, refurbishment, conservation and heritage work as well as new, bespoke and unique designs.
  • Sustainability

    In addition to lasting the life of a building and requiring minimal maintenance, cast iron is also 100% recyclable.
  • Cost-effective

    Owing to its longevity, low maintenance, fire resistance and low noise operation, the cost benefits of cast iron are significant.
