Victorian Cast Iron Restoration at Victoria Gardens

106mm Prostyle, Cast Iron Style Rainwater System

NIHE opted for a plastic alternative for repair works to 36 houses in Victoria Gardens, Belfast. The original cast iron guttering systems were removed and replaced with Brett Martin's Cascade Cast Iron Style guttering. 106mm Prostyle gutter and 68mm Round Downpipe were chosen to complement the red brick detailing of the facades of these properties.

Real cast has it's own benefits and but Cascade is lightweight, quick and easy to handle, transport and install and is manufactured so close in detail to the real thing that it is hard to tell the difference. 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.  It offers huge efficiencies in product costs, installation and site costs compared to traditional materials and makes working at height easier and safer. It is corrosion-free, UV stabilised and comes with a 10 year guarantee.

There are three styles of domestic gutter (106mm Profiled Ogee, 112mm Half Round and, for larger or steeper roofs, a 115mm Deep Profile) which 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.

Now there is also an extensive range of accessories and moulded hoppers which can carry bespoke designs and a choice of Six Heritage Colours: Classic Black, Oxford Blue, Olive Green, Graphite Grey, Sandstone and White Porcelain, the Victorian look was acheived using 'Classic Black'. A soil system comprising 110mm Soil Pipe, Soil Stack Shroud, access fittings and adapters provides a aboveground drainage range for the customer.
