Classical Plus is to The Manor Borne

Classical Plus pre-painted cast iron rainwater products from iron technology leader Saint-Gobain PAM UK Ltd,  part of leading international materials company, Saint-Gobain, have been specified for a Grade I Listed 16th Century manor house in London which is home to a Museum as well as the Borough of Haringey’s Archives and Local History Service.

Set in 20 acres of parkland, Bruce Castle Museum has recently undergone a major refurbishment. As part of this, existing cast iron rainwater systems on the building, installed up to 100 years ago, were replaced with new 150mm x 100mm moulded gutters, with 75mm circular downpipes.

Supplied ready to install, the Classical Plus range is pre-painted with a semi-gloss, black high-performing polymer alloy (Plascoat PPA 571 ES) finish which is recognised by the industry for outstanding performance on metal for external applications. It offers excellent performance with minimal maintenance.

The rainwater products were specified by architects NPS and supplied by Drain Center in Orpington. The main contractor for the project was Coniston Construction.

Nigel Luckhurst of Saint-Gobain PAM UK commented: “This was a project where due to the Grade 1 Listed status of the building and aesthetic considerations, a cast iron system was the first choice.”

The refurbishment also required the replacement of the external soil stacks which was undertaken using Timesaver heritage, a range of push-fit sockets with spigot pipe and fittings that provide a traditional appearance with the simplicity of push-fit assembly.
