Coated Aluminum Strips for Rain Gutters
Alcoat is a major supplier of coated aluminum coils used in rainwater guttering system for many years.
The comparative advantages of aluminium rain gutters are mainly lower weight, better formability, colour retention and lower cost.
These are the reasons why pre-painted aluminum is a perfect solution for Rain Gutters production. Pre-painted aluminum used for gutters,
tubes, accessories and hooks can match natural looking finishes offered by much more expensive materials such as Zinc and Copper.
- The coil is usually coated on both sides with the same coating system, often in different color combinations. This allows the customer the flexibilityto select either color for the decorative face of the installation, while giving added performance on the inside of the gutter.
- Roll-forming the gutter in one length at the time of installation eliminates the risk of leaks and pre-installation damage.
- End caps and corner miters are generally pressed from the same type of coated coil to ensure uniformity of color and appearance.
- Downspouts and associated units are also fabricated from coated aluminium coil, although other materials for these parts are also commonly used.
