EN-Construction-Product-Colorcoat Urban rainwater systems | Overview


External gutter

  • Our box gutter profile is designed to complement the Colorcoat Urban® roof system. Its box shape blends perfectly into the roofline, and comes complete with colour matched square downpipes. This system is secured into the fascia using top fix brackets that provide an uninterrupted gutter line when viewed from ground level.
  • Our external box gutter profiles are stocked in Colorcoat Urban® matt shades, Anthracite and Merlin, with short lead-times. Other colour options are available on request with longer lead-times.


Hidden gutter

  • Our hidden gutter offers a bespoke rainwater system that can be formed to suit almost any application. The gutter is hidden within the roofline and is ideal for use where roofs come together, or when the design requires a clean edge to the roof. This system has total flexibility and can be designed and tailored to suit your exact requirements.
  • Our hidden gutter profiles are supplied in Colorcoat® Aquatite, specifically developed for rainwater applications and ideally suited to the most demanding situations.
