SUSTAINABLE GUTTERING AND RAINWATER SOLUTIONS WITH MARLEY ALUTEC
As an architect, you will know the importance of finding high-quality, attractive building products with minimal maintenance needs. As the UK’s leading supplier of aluminium guttering, rainwater drainage and eaves solutions, Marley Alutec’s extensive portfolio of highly sustainable products fit this description.
Committed to delivering excellent service across all projects it is involved with, Marley Alutec produces innovative gutters, downpipes, fascia, soffit and coping solutions backed by many years’ experience. Unlike many other suppliers, the company manufactures its industry-leading product solutions from aluminium – providing exceptional strength and durability. In fact, many of Marley Alutec’s products come with a 50+ year functional life expectancy with minimal maintenance.
As we move into a new decade, environmental concerns are more important than ever and those designing buildings are now often required to meet certain sustainability targets within their work. Fortunately, aluminium solutions offer a simple way to achieve many of these goals. The infinitely recyclable material retains all of its original properties following the recycling process. To this end, some experts estimate that nearly 75 per cent of all aluminium ever produced is still in use today. Therefore, when looking to build greener, it is worthwhile considering how aluminium systems can help.
Specifically, Marley Alutec solutions are manufactured from marine-grade aluminium. As its name suggests, this material provides even greater robustness and offers heightened performance levels when compared to the standard material. That is why the company chose the material when designing its industry-leading Evolve range. Offering installation as fast as plastic and performance comparable to cast-iron, the range is available in 19 standard colours, including Heritage Black – with texturing also available to emulate the traditional cast iron appearance.
Another high-performing range is the company’s Aligator rainwater guttering system. A sleek and modern solution, the range is available in a number of distinctive design solutions. These include the Aligator Deepflow, Ogee and Boxer, which all come with internal joints and concealed brackets. The engineered solutions are perfect when working on modern homes as the internal joints and concealed brackets, offer a sleek and unobtrusive design.
Finally, the company is proud to offer its ever-popular Traditional Aluminium Rainwater Gutter Range. Manufactured to original British Standard cast iron dimensions BS8530. The modern solution is the ideal replacement for old cast iron rainwater systems and for use on listed buildings or in conservation areas, where this is a need to improve building performance without spoiling existing aesthetics. Available in Half Round, Victorian Ogee and Moulded Ogee profiles, the solution will provide a 50+ year functional life expectancy with minimal maintenance – unlike cast iron, which requires regular maintenance to prevent degradation.
In the current climate, specifiers need product solutions that they can trust. Thankfully, leading suppliers, such as Marley Alutec are able to offer them just that. Across its extensive product portfolio, the company has a suitable solution for any project – whether it is installing its Traditional gutter range on a listed renovation, or using its Aligator guttering on a stylish new build. As such, now is the time to brush up on the benefits of the company’s systems, which can help you to deliver more value, attractive aesthetics, and lasting performance.
