If you’re looking to replace the guttering on your agricultural building or you’re planning a new project for your farm, then uPVC industrial guttering could be the perfect choice for you.

You’re most likely aware of the traditional options for agricultural guttering. Galvanised steel guttering, aluminium guttering, lined concrete guttering and cement-fibre guttering are all commonly installed on agricultural buildings. But did you know that robust, UV resistant PVC deepstyle guttering provides many of the same benefits while being lightweight and durable?

Benefits of uPVC guttering for farm buildings

uPVC guttering is a top choice for a wide range of applications. This includes agricultural installations and with no compromise on durability or the capacity of your rainwater management system.

In fact, uPVC industrial guttering available from Cotterill Civils (such as Brett Martin 170mm Industrial Deepstyle uPVC Guttering) has been tested to BS EN 1462 Load Class H standards. This means that the robustness of the system is ensured. The products also meet BS EN 607:2004 standards for accelerated ageing, and loading capabilities comply with BS EN 1462:2004. Furthermore, Brett Martin is a BSI registered manufacturer and the company holds BS EN ISO 9001:2015 certification, which recognises the high quality of their products.

Compliance with these stringent regulations and standards should fill any farmer with confidence that uPVC deepstyle guttering is a long-lasting, hard-wearing solution for an agricultural setting. For example, uPVC is able to withstand harsh outdoor conditions, even in a spot that is particularly exposed to rain, wind, snow, UV rays and fluctuating temperatures on your farm.

uPVC guttering also offers the benefit of requiring little to no upkeep. Unlike metal guttering, a system made from durable plastic is not prone to rust or corrosion. Therefore, you won’t need to think about replacing or repairing your guttering installation for years to come. This also translates into cost savings over time.

As well as this, industrial deepstyle guttering is a high-capacity rainwater management system. This can be particularly beneficial for farm buildings, which often have large roofs and may be particularly exposed to the elements and heavy rainfall.

Internal rubber seals are pre-installed on the components of the industrial deepstyle guttering available from us here at Cotterill Civils. This means that a watertight seal is formed throughout the guttering system straightaway from installation. Leaky guttering and unwanted sodden ground can become a thing of the past with uPVC guttering. 

Altogether, uPVC guttering could be the perfect choice for your farm for all of these reasons. Not only is it a high quality, durable and long-lasting solution, there’s no need to compromise on the capacity of your system either.

How straightforward is uPVC guttering to install?

Thanks to Brett Martin’s unique CLIP&SEAL technology, installing deepstyle guttering on an agricultural building couldn’t be easier. CLIP&SEAL comes factory-fitted on component parts of the 170mm Deepstyle industrial guttering range from Brett Martin. As the name suggests, components simply clip together and instantly form a watertight seal

The last thing you want when installing a guttering system on a large farm building is a complicated installation process. Fortunately, this doesn’t have to be a concern with the innovative CLIP&SEAL technology.

The captive seal is engaged and is held in place firmly by the clip when the two components are connected together. There is enough flex in the fitting to ease the installation of components without compromising the robustness of the system. An audible click reassures the installer that the components are locked together.

With CLIP&SEAL pre-installed, the Brett Martin 170mm industrial deepstyle guttering is a perfect choice for a quick and easy installation on complex or demanding agricultural projects.
