Gargrave House Conversion Project

Cast Iron Style Soil System

Built in 1917, this Grade II listed building has been sympathetically converted into luxury apartments, situated in the North Yorkshire Dales. The client required a product that would remain architecturally true to the original features of the building. The property has recently installed the 110mm Push-Fit Cascade Cast Iron Style Soil System with Soil Stack Shroud, access fittings and adapters to complement the real cast iron guttering.  Cascade so closely resembles the real thing, it is fully compatible with both existing cast iron and modern-style rainwater systems and doesn’t need separate sealing packs, nuts, bolts, primers or paints. 

For the installer Cascade is lightweight, quick and easy to handle, transport. It offers huge efficiencies in product, installation and site costs compared to traditional materials and makes working at height on large buildings such as this Mansion easier and safer.  For the residents and appartment owners Cascade is corrosion-free, UV stabilised and comes with a 10 year guarantee.  Although not used in this particular application the gutter profile range comprises domestic and high capacity systems. Three styles of domestic gutter (106mm Profiled Ogee112mm Half Round and, for larger or steeper roofs, a 115mm Deep Profile) utilise 68mm round or 65mm square downpipes. For commercial projects there is a high capacity 160mm roundstyle gutter with 105mm round and 4” x 3” rectangular downpipe choice.

There is an extensive range of accessories and moulded hoppers which can carry bespoke designs traditional Ogee, Bath and Gothic hoppers and a choice of period motifs including Tudor Rose, Fleur de Lys, Lion and Gargoyles. Cascade is also available in a choice of Six Heritage Colours: Classic Black, Oxford Blue, Olive Green, Graphite Grey, Sandstone and White Porcelain, in this case 'Classic Black' was used. A soil system comprising 110mm Soil Pipe, Soil Stack Shroud, access fittings and adapters completes the line-up.
