Brecon Mountain Railway refurbishment receives Swish system

  • 16 Apr 2018

Swish Building Products have supplied guttering and fascia boards for station buildings and maintenance facilities at the Brecon Mountain Railway.

The Swish products featured as part of a large scale refurbishment and upgrade of the railway buildings, which included the booking hall, restaurant, platform and engine repair sheds. 

Duty Officer at the Merthyr Tydfil-based railway station, John Taylor, said they were concerned the buildings were looking shabby and the original guttering and fascia boards were well past their best.

“We needed replacements that would stand up to the heavy rain we get in South Wales and look right in this heritage location,” he said.

“As far as roofline and rainwater systems go, Swish did a fabulous job for us and we are good for many years to come.”

Swish supplied roughly 100 metres of its cellular PVC, Black foiled fascia and soffit boarding, as well as similar quantities of cast iron effect guttering in Ogee profile, plus square section downpipes.

Swish believe cellular PVC has usurped timber in terms of roofline work: fascia, soffit and barge boards.

This is due to better consistency of materials, ease of working, long life and zero maintenance.

Cellular PVC also has the capability to be fully re-cycled at the end of its service life, another benefit in comparison to timber.

When it comes to gutter detail, Swish cast iron effect rainwater goods are phenomenal reproductions of the original, with a surface texture which makes them massively appealing, and specially moulded components that follow the original design.

PVC is also a cost-effective alternative to the hugely more expensive, real thing.
