Introducing the next move in water management, Alumasc Water Management Solutions is launching the new AX SnapFix Extruded Aluminium Gutter System in the New Year.
With the cold, wet and dark British weather being extremely demanding on home rainwater systems, gutters nationwide and beyond have been filling up with debris and dead leaves all year, and now we are in winter, things are going wrong.
However, changing a gutter in the dead of winter is not only a freezing task, but a time-consuming and potentially dangerous one as well, especially if the short amount of winter daylight runs out before the job is done.
Available on 1st January 2019, AlumascWMS’ lightweight, 100% recyclable, aluminium gutter eliminates the need for nuts, bolts and washers, and hours spent up a ladder in the cold January gloom.
Ben Green, Divisional Marketing Manager for AlumascWMS, commented: “The crucial difference with this gutter system, is that it is fastened together with an integral ‘Snap Fix’. It has been engineered to provide a quality rainwater solution, without a lengthy installation time.”
With an impressive life span of up to 40 years, the AX SnapFix can now be installed in seconds and trusted for a generation.
The AX SnapFix is designed to offer professionals a cost-effective, lightweight, durable and highly corrosion resistant alternative to uPVC, that is able to fully accommodate thermal movement at every joint.
Available in three profiles – Beaded Half Round, Beaded Half Round Deep Run and Moulded (pictured in header photo) – it is ideal for both traditional and modern buildings, and suited to flush and projecting eaves applications alike.
Installation is quick and easy. Fascia brackets are fixed to the fascia board or rafters. The gutters are then ‘snap fixed’ into the fascia brackets, and sealant is added to the unions, outlets and stop ends.
They are also ‘snapped’ into position without the need for nuts, bolts and washers. This system requires less sealant than previous versions from the AX range, but is even more durable.
The complete AX range is offered in a range of twenty-six colours and finishes with BBA approved polyester powder coatings. While additional BS or RAL colours are available to special order, the gutters can also be supplied in a plain mill finish for on-site painting.
