The Polypipe Elegance
cast iron effect rainwater system has been further extended with the addition of our Ogee Notched profile.
The Elegance Ogee system most closely resembles the profiles found on original cast iron installations. So when you want
to preserve that traditional look on a period home, Elegance Ogee is the natural choice.
ELEGANCE OGEE NOTCHED
- A notch above the rest
The Elegance Ogee profile is an extra capacity system consisting of 130mm gutters in either 2.0m or 4.0m lengths. A full range of fittings and adaptors is available.
All of the fittings within our range will connect to other Polypipe Ogee products and, of course, to the cast iron effect downpipe systems that form part of the Elegance range.
The revolutionary new Polypipe Notched Gutter is a true innovation within rainwater systems.
This patented product* has first been introduced to the new Ogee profile system within the Elegance range of cast iron effect rainwater systems. We have developed the system
to counteract the potential problem of gutters becoming dislodged from their fittings during warm weather.
This problem can occur when heat expansion causes the gutter to dislodge from the retaining clip.
With the new Polypipe Notched Gutter, dislodgement due to heat expansion and the resulting leaky joints, is a thing of the past. The leading edge of the gutter is notched and the system uses a flexible band clip to secure the gutter. The notches on the gutter are simply matched to the band clip and snappedinto place. (See diagram 1)
An added benefit of the Notched Gutter system is the inclusion of grooves between the notches, which act as cutting markers. Wherever possible notched gutters should becut at the mid-point of the notch as indicated by the mark. (See diagram 2)
To complete the installation fascia brackets should be fixed at centres not exceeding 1.0m.
The latest addition to our Elegance cast iron effect rainwater system is our high capacity Polyflow profile. We can now offer you an extensive choice of profiles all benefiting from the reliability you have come to expect from Polypipe.
The addition of the Elegance Polyflow profile now gives you the option for a high capacity rainwater solution while still benefiting from the timeless appearance of a Cast Iron Effect rainwater system.
Its deep semi-elliptical profile means it can be used onmost domestic applications, whether it’s a town house,semi-detached or a barn conversion.
The Polyflow profile gutter measures 117 x 75mm (w x d)and comes in 4.0m lengths. This is supported by a full range of fittings which will also connect directly to our standard Polyflow profile.
