Battersea Reach

Battersea, London

– Battersea Reach – London

With the scaffolding now gone and the site hoardings removed, Blocks H & J of Berkley Homes’ Battersea Reach development are now revealed in all their stunning glory.

Providing one, two and three bedroom apartments and three bedroom penthouses, this is an award-winning development with a dramatic series of waterfront buildings that cascade towards the river’s edge providing views across the river to Chelsea Harbour.
As well as offering the pinnacle in riverside luxury, Battersea Reach features a cross section of product and innovation from Guttermaster.

“Quite literally from top to bottom, Guttermaster’s design team has been fully involved, we developed a range of Brise Soleil in keeping with the styling of the penthouse apartments and dealt effectively and securely with roof drainage requirements with our Flush-Fix high security rainwater pipe system”.

The SnapLok Hurricane Proof wall capping will never lose touch with its intended purpose. A key feature with the development is the facetted roof detail crafted from aluminium and fixed using the SnapLok attachment process.

“There seems to be no doubt that practical weather proof answers to securing the building envelope, from the roof to the ground floor will require effective and aesthetic solutions for many years to come and I’m delighted that the design and manufacturing capabilities of Guttermaster can be brought to bear in this exciting and challenging arena”.

The SnapLok wall capping or coping, as the name implies, means that the outer aluminium weathering capping can be “snapped” onto the specially designed combined fixing/jointing brackets. This eliminates the need for vulnerable penetrations on the top surface and presents a smooth unbroken line.

TrimFix brake-pressed aluminium fascia systems are an economical and highly decorative way of protecting timber or steel eaves structures from attack by the elements. Very few public commercial properties have on-site facilities for periodic maintenance, TrimFix or Shadow in a polyester powder coated finish with up to 25 years coating warranty, will only need the occasional wipe clean.

Slimline Flush Fix rainwater pipes fix directly to the wall with no visible jointing or fixing – the ultimate in security.

Although originally designed for security conscious environments, the visually pleasing lines have resulted in this product being specified on low-risk buildings.

The stylish flush-fix pipe is now in common use where clean unbroken lines or vandal resistance are important factors.

Final Result

SnapLok wall capping is the most secure in the industry, withstanding wind speeds in excess of an astounding 400 miles an hour, more than twice the force of Hurricane Katrina at its peak. Simple to fit and now proven to be the safest, SnapLok wall capping system provides weatherproof ventilation for parapet walls.
