Project Overview

A famous educational establishment on 7 Bishopswood Rd in central London requires a modern and efficient guttering solution to improve its infrastructure. Hollywell Building Services Limited, a prominent contractor known for providing high-quality building services, oversaw the project. They collaborated with Metal Profiles Limited, a prominent installer that specialises in bespoke metal fabrications, to complete this important improvement.

Project Details

The project required the construction of a unique Aluminium Box Gutter system and 102x102mm Aluminium Square Downpipes. This system was chosen for its durability, visual appeal, and ability to manage high water flow, guaranteeing that the building’s façade is protected from water damage.

The Aluminium Box Gutter system and downpipes received a high-quality polyester powder coating in RAL 7043 Traffic Grey B. This finish not only has a sleek and modern appearance, but it is also highly resistant to weathering and UV radiation, assuring long-lasting performance with minimal maintenance.

The installed gutter system has an A2-s1,d0 fire rating, meeting the highest safety standards. This rating indicates that the materials used are non-combustible, producing very little smoke and no burning droplets, making it an excellent choice for educational buildings where safety is a priority.

Metal Profiles Limited planned and conducted the installation process with painstaking care. Their expertise in bespoke aluminium fabrications guaranteed that every component of the gutter system was perfectly constructed to fit the building’s specifications.

Design and Fabrication: The design was customised to meet the architectural elements of the educational building. Metal Profiles Limited used modern manufacturing processes to design the gutter and downpipe system, ensuring a seamless integration with the existing structure.

Quality Assurance: The system underwent thorough testing to ensure its integrity and performance. This included testing the water flow capacity and evaluating the finish to ensure it fit the specifications.

Results and Benefits.

The successful installation of the unique Aluminium Box Gutter system considerably improved the building’s ability to manage rainwater efficiently. The system’s high-quality finish and durable design ensure that it will provide long-lasting protection while also maintaining its visual appeal for many years.
