The wait is over for cast aluminium colours – 26 colours in 7 days

Heritage Cast Aluminium gutters and downpipes are a cost-effective alternative to Cast Iron being lighter and therefore easier to handle and fix; non-corrodible and durable with a life expectancy of 40 years and still 100% recyclable. The BBA approved in-house factory applied Polyester Powder Coated (PPC) Heritage Cast Aluminium gutters and downpipes in a choice of 26 standard colours are now consistently being delivered in 7 - 10 days.

Aluminium is already the low maintenance option for guttering but the factory applied PPC has a life expectancy of at least 15 years in heavily polluted areas and 20 elsewhere, and extends the life of the product beyond 40 years. Only periodic maintenance is advised; applying a warm soapy water solution to bring back the original appearance while checking for joint integrity and removing any accumulated debris at the same.

Heritage Textured Black Cast Aluminium – Next Day Delivery

Rainclear have expanded into an additional warehouse to significantly increased their stock of the most popular Textured Black colour in the Half- Round, Victorian Ogee and PLUS now also 5x4 Moulded Ogee profiles, so that these products can available for next day delivery*.

(*As long as you have place your order before Noon Mon-Thurs. (excludes Bank Holidays and Saturday deliveries are only by special arrangement and inevitably incur a surcharge)).

26 Standard RAL Cast Aluminium colours

The colours that are available with 7-10 day delivery time are determined by the 26 powder colours the manufacturer holds in stock. These may expand and evolve slowly as demand and fashions change, but currently they are those shown on the table below.

All the colours have an attractive ‘matt’ finish as identified by the ‘M’ at the end of the RAL number, that is except for the Metallic Silver RAL 9006G which has an 80% Gloss finish.

They would always recommend ordering the Metallic Silver Polyester Powder Coated rather than the uncoated mill finish (unless you plan to hand paint it yourself on-site**), not only to benefit from the extra protection PPC offers but also to even out any differences in finishes between cast gutters, extruded downpipes and fabricated fittings.

** Hand painting on-site:plain mill Aluminium gutters and downpipes can be site painted using a zinc phosphate aluminium primer followed by two coats of gloss paint.

Special Colours

Almost any BS or RAL colour is available to ‘special order’ but these will incur a longer time to delivery and an additional surcharge as the special colour powder must be ordered and applied. If you have a very special colour in mind, get in touch and they will find out if the colour is available in the powder and what surcharges will apply to your size of order.

The Finishing Touch

Whether you are a homeowner choosing to invest in home improvements rather than move house, a seasoned house developer or building your dream home, choosing a unique coloured rainwater system can be seen as a differentiator instead of simply a necessity, and it is a simple way to add a design flourish or the finishing touch to a project while also ensuring high performance and protection of the building well into the future.
