Cast Iron Downpipes

In contrast to most plastic rainwater downpipes, cast iron rainwater pipe and its assorted fittings is vastly more ornamental. With conventional eared sockets, a broad variety of bends and a plentiful range of visually attractive hoppers, our cast downpipes can make any property stylish. 

Our cast iron systems are provided by Hargreaves, a long-established foundry located in Halifax, Yorkshire. They have been manufacturing cast iron products since the 1880’s, and furthermore are the number one supplier of Cast Iron rainwater products in the UK market. With all of their years of experience of pouring cast metal products, we also offer the option of custom manufacturing if needed for more wide-scale projects - for more details, please contact us. 

Our downpipes come in a range of shape options including square, circular and rectangle shaped profiles, in both transit primer or factory painted black colour options, in a selection of different sizes.

ADVANTAGES OF USING CAST IRON GUTTERING 

Cast Iron is a remarkably durable material — many authentic installations from as early as the Victorian period still exist within the UK in, around the North of England and London in particular. When maintained accurately, Cast Iron Guttering outlives all competing products made from alternative materials. 

Because Cast Iron is connected to tradition, it is used especially well on period-style properties, from Victorian terraces to one-off houses. As well as this, it is the most-used guttering material on listed buildings; a large number of planning officers refuse to accept alternative materials. Iron is sourced naturally, so it is completely recyclable — combine this with its incredibly long lifespan, and Cast Iron can be justifiably seen as a truly environmentally-friendly material.

 

COMPATIBILITY OF CAST IRON GUTTERING 

The majority of PVC Gutter manufacturers incorporate adaptors to half round cast iron in their collection. These adaptors typically consist of a compressed rubber seal, making an impermeable joint by tightening a PVC strap, normally with a nut and bolt assembly. Also available are adaptors to Cast Iron Ogee, which attach the PVC gutter to the metal by using a nut and bolt through the gutter section, and furthermore make the joint by using silicon sealant.

 

INSTALLING CAST IRON GUTTERING 

Every Cast Iron Gutter and Downpipe is available in an 1830mm length, with pre-drilled openings which allow for nut, bolt, and silicon fastening. 

Full instructions for installation that are easy to follow on site can be found in our Guides & Tips section.
