NEW Video Launched Showing Step-By-Step Guide to Installing Cascade

Installing Cascade

Brett Martin Plumbing and Drainage has launched a new installation video, demonstrating how quick and easy it is to install the Cascade Cast Iron Style Rainwater and Soil System.


The new installation video takes installers through the process of installing the Cascade Cast Iron Style Roundstyle 112mm Gutter and 68mm Round Downpipe in a step-by-step guide from choosing the right tools for the job, calculating the fall, to cutting and fitting.


“It can be surprising how many installers have call backs after installing rainwater systems.” said Hayley Lowry, Marketing Manager of Brett Martin. “Our new Cascade installation video simplifies and provides how-to tips throughout the installation process to ensure guttering problems are a thing of the past.”


Because the Cascade range is much lighter than cast iron, installation at height is less hazardous, being effortless to lift, easy to manoeuvre, simple to cut and quick to fit. The Cascade system also benefits from external fixing lugs, enabling easy power tool access, which further speeds up installation. All gutter fitting joints have integral seals and flexible retaining clips, allowing the gutter lengths to simply click into place. No extra-cost fixing kits or nuts and bolts are required to make gutter joints, as with most traditional systems.


Through a comprehensive range of gutters and downpipes which feature authentic architectural detailing and a choice of Ogee, Bath, Gothic or motiffed hopper designs, water butt and planters as well as a complementary soil system, Cascade can provide heritage style and meet the aesthetic requirements of new build where traditional style is required as well as sympathetic refurbishments and restoration projects.


The comprehensive range of Cascade domestic and industrial systems is available in three styles; 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.


At a fraction of the price of cast iron, this high performance product is also maintenance free and UV stabilised so it is not vulnerable to rusting or corrosion. Also, Cascade is fully compatible with both existing cast iron and modern-style rainwater systems and comes with a ten year guarantee, giving it a huge appeal.


Proven on a variety of projects from new build and domestic refurbishment projects, church and barn conversions, Georgian and Victorian shop frontages, flats and apartments, schools and hotels, the Cascade system has been designed and developed by Brett Martin Plumbing and Drainage using over 50 years’ experience at the forefront of plastics technology and a unique patented manufacturing process to achieve the authentic cast iron finish.
