Tuscan Foundry Products Ltd offer genuine cast iron rainwater systems which are available in grey primer or black painted finish. The Tuscan H16 moulded cast iron gutter profile is offered in 2 different widths (see Other Information) and is supported by a wide range of ancillary items including gutter angles, outlets, stop ends and a variety of brackets and gutter fixing options.
Tuscan cast iron rainwater gutters and pipes offer industry leading standards in both strength and durability. Not only are they able to withstand the weight of ladders, aiding cleaning and maintenance but they are highly resistant to distortion caused by accident or vandalism. In addition, cast iron gutters will not bend and sag when subjected to snow loads and storms.
Cast iron is an excellent choice for rainwater goods as when correctly installed and maintained it should be expected to last in excess of 100 years. It is this exceptional lifespan that also means that cast iron rainwater goods have a whole life cost which is much lower than plastic or aluminium alternatives. Whilst plastic or cast iron effect gutters and pipes might be cheaper at the point of purchase, replica systems cannot retain the strength, character and integrity of a cast iron system. In fact using inappropriate materials on period or Listed buildings can actually cost money in the long term as you will remove the genuine appearance of an original system.
Tuscan cast iron is also 100% recyclable so at the end of its life you need not worry of the environmental impact is the way that you would with modern materials.
The key benefit of a cast iron rainwater system is the low noise levels due to the sound deadening of the material. Cast iron gutters and pipes are not subject to expansion and contraction in the way that many modern materials are. This means no noisy clicking, creaking or deformation of gutters.
Tuscan H16 moulded can be jointed using our low modulus silicone sealant, bolts, nuts and washers. The H16 moulded profile can be fitted using a fascia bracket or more commonly by directly fixing through the back of the gutter using the pre-drilled holes.
The gutters and fittings are supplied with a socket on one side and a plain end on the other. With the H16 moulded profile it is important that you choose the right product as the shaped front of the gutter means that you cannot turn the item in the same way as you could with a half round profile. If sockets are removed on site, offcuts can be re-used by purchasing our union clip piece.
Our cast iron rainwater gutters and pipes are manufactured in accordance with BS460 and are primed in a grey metal primer with rust inhibitors.
Our pre-painted items has a factory applied two-pack polyurethane coated finish which has a life expectancy of at least 10 years, subject to annual inspection and maintenance. For locations closer than 5km to the coast or a salt water estuary, please contact our office to discuss options.
Tuscan offer 8 standard cast iron gutter profiles in a variety of differing sizes with capacities up to 3 litres per second. We can also produce bespoke profiles and sizes to match your exact requirements.
Tuscan rainwater diverter kits allow rainwater harvesting through facilitating connection to a water butt. Offered in 3 sizes as standard the Tuscan rainwater diverter is supplied with installation instructions.
Standard cast iron gutter lengths are 6′ (1829mm) and radius gutters are just over 39″ (1000mm).
Due to the many beneficial properties of cast iron rainwater goods, minimal maintenance is required for Tuscan castings. We recommend an annual inspection of rainwater, soil or drainage systems for clearance of debris and blockages. Painted surfaces should be cleared of any contamination and any deterioration of paint should be touched up.
