Aluminium Capping

The Atrium – Camberley, London

– The Atrium – Camberley
Scope of works – 680m SnapLok capping, and 722m Trimfix fascia with concealed aluminium guttering and 160m of traditional rainwater pipe.

Guttermaster Limited was involved from the conception stage of this project, working closely with the architect and contractor to design and manufacture a complex concealed guttering system and aluminium copings.

Guttermaster ensured all junctions between eaves and verge lined through perfectly to create the perimeter feature envisaged by the architect, providing the roof edge with bold symmetrical lines around the whole project.

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.

Guttermaster’s traditional round rainwater pipes offer a complete range of additional fittings which connect using welded “iron look” designed sockets, available as eared or uneared. Eared, enable the pipe to be fixed back to the wall, uneared sockets require pipe clips which provide variable projection off the wall.

Conventional box gutter systems have, over many years, been extensively criticised by both specifiers and installers.  The Guttermaster solution addresses the two main areas of criticism – “poor jointing” and inadequate support arrangements.

The internal union joints incorporate spacers which prevent over-tightening and subsequent leakage, whilst replacing the unreliable and unsightly butt straps found in other systems.  The RG range uses a bracket which incorporates wind and snow restraint

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.
