Alumasc adds authenticity at Caer Amon
Architectural rainwater specialists, Alumasc, have provided a package of their premium products to the exclusive Caer Amon housing development in Cramond, Nr Edinburgh.
Alumasc Aqualine gutters and Flushjoint downpipes with a mill finish were the preferred choice of Richard Murphy Architects, who wanted to reflect the local influence of bygone times with white-washed walls, slate roofs and an authentic rainwater system for developers, AMA Homes. The luxury village development, which overlooks the Firth of Forth, comprises townhouses, penthouse apartments and luxury flats - all created in a style synonymous with historic Edinburgh. AMA Homes always choose durable components for their developments and Alumasc offered a high quality solution.
Alumasc’s Aqualine extruded aluminium gutter system was specified for its high capacity drainage capabilities, whilst complementing the architectural character of the buildings with a sleek and sophisticated appearance. Secret fix bracketry allows a smooth, uniform cross section along the whole length of the gutter, giving a completely clean external appearance. Bespoke rainwater Hopper Heads were specified for the apartment buildings and extra long offsets were designed and supplied to the client’s specification. All weather ‘dry’ jointing and full provision for thermal movement between gutter parts and the structure to which they are fixed, ensures a precision installation.
A Flushjoint Downpipe System was used to continue the seamless appearance of the guttering. Heavy grade extruded aluminium pipes have flush joints based on concealed spigots, whilst pipes and fittings are mounted on brackets to stand clear of the structure.
Alumasc rainwater products are available in a range of profile sizes and shapes with complementary accessories. All are 100% recyclable which was a key factor in their specification.
