Introducing EWI Gutter from Alumasc Facades – Giving refurbishments the new build look

EWI-Gutter-MainAlumasc Facades have been a trusted manufacturer of External Wall Insulation systems for over 60 years and have now applied their knowledge of the building envelope to a brand new EWI Gutter Range.

EWI Gutter from Alumasc Facades, has been designed specifically to address the problem of cold bridging at eaves level whilst creating an aesthetically pleasing and cost effective alternative to standard verge trims on refurbishment projects.

As refurbishment of existing properties continues to trend, the new EWI Gutter system offers architects and home-owners a retrofit solution with a new build look. Gone are the days of rotting timber and brittle, sun-damaged PVC, Alumasc’s EWI Gutter presents a long-lasting, low maintenance alternative, manufactured in Aluminium to provide a clean, contemporary finish.

Box and Ogee are available as standard profiles, and with manufacturing taking place at Alumasc’s plant in the UK, bespoke profiles can easily be provided.

Bringing the benefits of Alumasc’s on-site technical knowledge and support, together with a network of Registered Installers, EWI Gutter is lightweight, quick and easy to install, with lifetime maintenance costs being far lower than those presented by high-maintenance alternatives. The product is supplied painted, in black, white or grey as standard, with additional colour matches available on request.

Technical Director for Alumasc Facades, Mark Gibbs, comments:

“As a trusted supplier of External Wall Insulation systems, we work on hundreds of projects that are subject to design restrictions inflicted by retrofit rainwater systems. Having developed our own system, to perfectly complement the quality finish of our facades, we have opened up a range of new options to architects and designers, which allow for a far more contemporary ‘newly built’ look.

“We are also aware that our colleagues see advantages in a one-source product offer. They already know Alumasc offer unrivalled products and technical support, so the addition of the EWI Gutter system further supports the whole process whilst also addressing ever-important budget considerations. It is widely acknowledged that Aluminium presents greater value for money over the lifetime of the product. When installed to Alumasc recommendations, the result is a long-lasting solution that can withstand the rigours of the British weather for just as long as the EWI .”

Inspirational design plays a major part in successful BSF programme

A ZinCo green roof from Alumasc assisted with the BREEAM rating of Hetton Lyons School in Sunderland.

Minister of State for Schools and Learners, Vernon Coaker MP, has been talking at the recent BSEC conference about his impression of the nations schools.

He described the governments BSF programme as a “real record of achievement” and spoke of the significant change brought about in our primary and secondary schools, touching specifically on the award winning architectural designs that make our modern school buildings “inspirational and exciting” places to be.

Mr Coaker continued “The important thing now is to bring every school building up to the standard that we want. To make them modern, light and airy and environmentally friendly.”

Alumasc’s Aqualine gutter system and Flushjoint downpipes were used on Windygoul Primary School near Edinburgh. The project earned East Lothian Council a Carbon Trust Award for Low Carbon Building.

Alumasc has long been involved in school building initiatives and we are working closely alongside a number of architectural and contract partners on some of the country’s most innovative school buildings. Alumasc’s green roofs, waterproofing systems, thermally efficient external wall insulation and recyclable rainwater systems have all been specified on educational projects to help minimise their impact on the environment.

Let’s hope that by building greener schools, the young generations learning inside them can be confident of a more positive outlook for the earth’s resources.
