Saint-Gobain PAM UK, part of international materials company Saint-Gobain, has added a high quality steel system, called Cyclone, to its range of rainwater and gutter products.
Ideal for traditional and modern buildings in both new build and refurbishment applications, the new, lightweight Cyclone range offers a cost-effective alternative to plastic gutters, with the strength and longevity of a steel system.
With no risk of shrinking, leaking or colour fading over its guaranteed life, the steel system is easy to install with no specialist tools or skills required. In addition, very little maintenance is needed, only the general industry recommended twice yearly cleaning of any debris collected in the gutter, and washing down with warm soapy water.
Steel rainwater systems are the material of choice for Scandinavian markets and as such are robust enough for use in extreme weather conditions and temperature ranges.
The Cyclone range is coated with a high build polyester paint “Prelac Nova RWS” produced by SSAB, combining the benefits of polyester coatings, which ensure resistance to corrosion, and the merits of galvanized steel, which provides high strength.
The range is available in a choice of three standard colours from stock including black, silver metallic and white, all of which are UV protected so will not fade or crack. The gutter profile is half round in sizes 100, 125 and 150mm with a deeper flow capability. Rainwater downpipes and fittings are available in 75, 87 and 100mm diameters.
The Cyclone range is available throughout the UK through national and local distributors.
Commenting on the launch, Mike Rawlings, Marketing Manager – Soil, Drain & Rainwater at Saint-Gobain PAM said:
“This launch adds to our extensive range of rainwater products, meaning we’re able to offer a rainwater solution for any type of building, be it large or small, domestic or commercial.
“Steel has a contemporary look and feel, and offers a quality rainwater and gutter solution competitive with plastic and lower in cost than aluminium. The Cyclone system is lightweight and easy to install, as most components simply push together, whilst the range of colours available helps to enhance the external characteristics of a building.”
