Direct Fixing Victorian Ogee and Moulded Ogee Gutters

watch the brief video

Direct fixing can be used for Victorian Ogee and Moulded Ogee gutters, with slots provided as necessary, generally at 600mm centres. When ordering material always specify 'Direct Fix’.

(The alternative being to order the appropriate Fascia Brackets and fix at max 915mm centres, but even then, an occasional screw (2 per length) fixed through the slot in the back of the gutter into the fascia is also recommended where high winds are expected)

A sealing washer should be used when direct fixing gutters to prevent leakage through the rear slot during high flow. Alternatively, a small amount of sealant can be applied around the slot and screw head.

Victorian Ogee gutters (either Cast Aluminium or Cast Iron) must be fixed with the bottom of the gutter level.
This can be achieved with use of the appropriate wedge (code: VOWEDGE) between fascia and gutter.

For Moulded Ogee gutters (in Cast Aluminium or Cast Iron) the appropriate wedge is Code: MOWEDGE.

Always ensure that all fixing slots provided are used. Fixing centres may vary, but always fix at the centre of each slot to allow thermal movement.
