Alumasc Architectural Rainwater – First Choice at Westminster Apartments
Alumasc Architectural Rainwater Systems have been specified at a new development of luxury apartments by
Berkeley Homes in Westminster. The apartments are a mere three minutes walk from the Houses of Parliament
and are built to an extremely high specification.
Guardian aluminium security pipes were fitted to the front elevation, and were used in conjunction with GX
Gutters and Skyline Coping, also supplied by Alumasc. Flushjoint, the ‘clean line’ range of circular, square and
rectangular rainwater pipes was used in conjunction with Harmer roof outlets on the rear of the building,
providing a high performance drainage solution.
Guardian is a flush fitting architectural feature downpipe that has been specifically designed for security
conscious environments. Impossible to climb and resistant to high impact damage, Guardian has a smooth
visual appearance with no sockets or pipe clips. The range comprises five attractive extruded aluminium
downpipe profiles in 2 metre lengths, supplied complete with unique fittings purpose made for each project
The GX gutters used on the project come from a range of robust, fully engineered pressed aluminium box
gutters, available in three profiles (each with 5 sizes). GX systems are designed for simple wet-jointing on site,
are especially suited to applications where maximum capacity is required and are Agrément certified.
Alumasc had close involvement with the project from the design-stage onwards, following introduction to the
scheme by contractor Briggs Roofing. Alumasc Technical Services are able to provide design advice extending
from choice of appropriate rainwater system and calculation of flow rates using specialised gutter flow
software, through to installation instructions and maintenance advice.
