Brett Martin Showcase Cast Iron Alternative at Buildex Event

Capital BuildingEx & RoofEx Exhibition, Brett Martin Plumbing & Drainage

Brett Martin Plumbing and Drainage attended this years Capital BuildingEx and RoofEx exhibition at the Royal National Hotel, London. Brett Martin showcased its full plumbing and drainage range, as well as hosting an informative CPD seminar looking at the long term advantages of using a cast iron style guttering range, such as Cascade from Brett Martin.

The RIBA approved CPD seminar, Cast Iron Style – Traditional Styled Rainwater and Soil Systems, demonstrates how an appropriately selected rainwater system can help to complement the aesthetics of the building whilst satisfying the criteria as specified in relevant building regulations.

By exhibiting its full range of plumbing and drainage solutions in addition to the CPD seminar presence, Brett Martin was able to offer a complete overview of its product offering and capabilities as a materials and solutions provider.

Paul Wadsworth, Specification Representative for Brett Martin, hosted the CPD seminar. He commented, “This double pronged approach allows us to address key issues surrounding the specification of suitable rainwater and soil systems whilst giving visitors a real flavour of the style and variety of products we offer.”

“The seminar tackles the much debated issue of plastic versus traditional cast iron and demonstrates how Brett Martin’s Cascade cast iron style rainwater and soil system can bridge the gap between the Architects vision and the reality of the clients budget offering authentic detailing and design achieved with modern solutions.

The Cast Iron Style products have been installed on a diverse range of properties, including new builds and Grade II listed buildings.  With listed buildings especially, it is vital to carefully consider which products are used to sympathetically restore its appearance. The Cascade system has been recognised by architects and Council Conservation Officers as an economical alternative to traditional materials, without compromising the integrity of the building.”

Manufactured from plastic, the Cascade Range of Rainwater and Soil systems meticulously replicate the original detail of real cast iron, imbuing character into pipework, fittings and hoppers to give the appearance of traditional cast iron with all the benefits of modern plastic products. Providing heritage style, the range is available in Classic Black, Oxford Blue, Olive Green, Graphite Grey, Sandstone and Porcelain White.

With over 50 years experience in rainwater, soil & waste and underground drainage systems, Brett Martin brings a wealth of technical expertise to any project.
