A collection of luxury eco-friendly holiday homes have been fitted with Guttercrest’s Aluminium Rainwater Hoppers and Downpipes.
Brick Kiln’s nine detached homes overlook meadowland on the River Alde estuary – one of the highest conservation protections under international treaty as well as being an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
A clear design objective for the homes was to make to make them as ecologically friendly as possible, with features including Sedum flowering plant roof coverings and energy efficient air source pumps. Guttercrest’s Aluminium Gutters, Downpipes and Hoppers were an ideal choice for an eco-friendly rainwater solution to fit the design objective.
Guttercrest’s aluminium rainwater goods have a long life expectancy, in excess of 60 years – enhancing the whole of life embodied energy figure relative to materials with shorter life spans. Aluminium is amongst the most environmentally friendly metals on the planet, with 75% of all aluminium ever produced still being recycled.
The rectangular aluminium rainwater hoppers are used alongside 100mm square aluminium downpipe and 100mm square box gutter, all coated in a matt black (RAL 9005) polyester powder finish.
Available in a huge range of colours and finishes, Guttercrest manufacture all of their products from their 65,000 sq ft Shropshire factories and deliver direct to site.
