Alumasc Rainwater has launched its new technical brochure providing comprehensive technical and installation advice on its extensive range of market leading metal rainwater systems.
Known as ‘The Blue Book’, this substantial new brochure has been designed as an aide for Architects, Specifiers and Contractors, outlining full technical details of all product ranges, providing dimensions, installation instructions and NBS specifications, with a clear colour-coded product selector for ease of reference and a full colour photo gallery showing the products in-situ.
The Blue Book features Alumasc’s pre-painted cast iron range, which boasts a highly durable four-coat factory-finish available in eight standard heritage colours. Lasting up to seven years before re-painting is required, all products carry Alumasc’s certified paint mark which confirms the four-coat system, giving reassurance that the range is fully protected against the elements.
The range is priced at only 13% more than the primed equivalent, but offers impressive cost savings of up to 60% on installation time and 30% in materials. A short-term investment, that translates into a significant long-term saving.
Also included is Alumasc’s full Aluminium Rainwater Systems range which offers ten new BBA Approved powder-coated colour finishes, taking the total in the range from 16 to 26, including the popular Silver Metallic which is now available as a standard colour. The range also continues to be available in a plain mill finish.
In addition to the aluminium and cast iron ranges, The Blue Book showcases Alumasc’s recently-launched rolled steel rainwater system which is ideal for both traditional and modern buildings in new build and refurbishment projects. Rolled steel rainwater products offer a contemporary, eco-friendly and cost effective alternative to uPVC systems, and are available in a galvanised finish or a choice of standard colours.
For projects requiring traditional rainwater fittings, the Harmer LCC traditional cast iron soil and waste drainage systems are featured. The range has been recently updated and includes a wide variety of accessories, manufactured to imperial dimensions and created to accurately reproduce period detail by combining historic iron-casting processes with modern manufacturing techniques.
Ben Green, Marketing Manager of Alumasc Rainwater, comments: “At Alumasc Rainwater we’re committed to providing valuable resources which not only showcase our fantastic products, but which make it easier for industry colleagues to plan and progress their projects quickly and effectively.
“The Blue Book will provide architects, specifiers and contractors with everything they need in one easy-reference guide. With 180 pages of useful product and technical information, we’re confident it will quickly become the new industry bible.”
