Benefits of Classical
Classical rainwater downpipes (circular) are produced using the latest pipe manufacturing technology - centrifugally spinning the pipe ensuring consistent section dimensions, unlike that of pipes produced by the traditional sand cast method, which is prone to produce pipe with 'thick' and 'thin' spots making the pipe inherently weaker.
A new pre-painted, ready to install cast iron rainwater systems in a semi-gloss black finish, saving both time and materials. More information
A true half round gutter profile with increased flow rates - over existing half round. A unique Jointing Clip making installation easier than ever. More information
NEW CAST IRON JOINTING KIT
A rubber gasket jointing kit for use with G800 HR gutters enabling quicker and cleaner installation when compared to the traditional mastic/putty method. More information
- Elongated fixing holes
- Drip grooves - will encourage rainwater to run down rainwater pipe away from wall, avoiding staining of wall
- Recessed ear piece - eliminates ponding of water at back of socket
- Internally Profiled
- Increased spigot length - improves location within pipe when used in loose situation
- Guaranteed joint integrity
- Now customised
SPIGOT PIPES/LOOSE SOCKET OPTION
To increase the flexibility of installing the Classical circular downpipes, plain ended pipe barrels (1750mm length) are available to use with the new rainwater socket. This will allow the installer to utilise more effectively, pipe offcuts and save cost on reduced wastage. This option also provides the installer the flexibility to work bottom up or vice versa.

CAST IRON SPACER PLATES
Available to suit the eared circular downpipes, the cast iron spacer plate is used to position the pipe away from the wall to accommodate uneven wall surfaces and assist in painting after installation. The spacer plates will equal the life expectancy of the system and complements the installation.
- Classical is available either with black primer coating or factory applied top coat
- Reduces number of paint finishing systems on-site
- Reduction in time and cost of installation
- Colour of finished product predominantly black
The Classical range of cast iron rainwater systems offers eight gutter profiles a choice of round and rectangular pipes with extensive ranges of associated fittings to suit any building whatever the architectural style.
All the Classical standard HR gutters have undergone hydraulic testing (HR Wallingford) to establish actual capacity, capabilities and performance.
Circular downpipes incorporating the new socket design have also been assessed in conjunction with gutters.
