Brett Martin’s Cascase system was specified as the rainwater system complemented the traditional design, met with planning approval and is designed to deliver long term performance. Manufactured with modern plastic materials, Cascade can replace an aluminium or cast iron rainwater specification to deliver projects under budget and ahead of schedule.
Cascade is available in domestic, high capacity rainwater systems and a complementary 110mm soil system – the iron-style system also offers several gutter profiles and downpipe styles, suitable for new build and renovation projects. To retain the authentic style, each element of the system has been carefully designed to replicate original features, dimensions and detailing.
Brett Martin features an extensive range of hoppers – including traditional Ogee, Bath and Gothic – that allows the specifier to individualise the rainwater system. In addition, the system features a selection of period motifs which includes Tudor Rose, Fleur de Lys, Lion and Gargoyles.
In addition to Classic Black, the system can be supplied in a choice of heritage colours including Oxford Blue, Olive Green, Graphite Grey, Sandstone and Porcelain White.
