Cascade Iron Style Rainwater System prize winner announced

  • 10 Nov 2014

Andrew James won £500 to spend on Cascade Iron Style Rainwater and Soil Systems

Cascade offers the appearance of traditional cast iron with the benefits of modern plastic materials at a fraction of the price of cast iron and aluminium, allowing for savings on materials, labour and time on site.

Competition winner Andrew, Managing Director of Andrew James Builders Ltd, replaced the guttering system at his period cottage but the pipework looks faded and lacks kerb appeal – he believes that Cascade will provide a ‘welcome alternative to traditional weighty cast iron systems.’

The Cascade system has been designed to replicate original cast iron features, dimensions and detailing and is manufactured from lightweight plastics to make it easier to install and maintain.

Featuring a wide choice of domestic and industrial gutter and pipework profiles, traditional hopper designs and complementary push-fit soil systems, Cascade is fully compatible with both existing cast iron and modern-style rainwater systems.
