Rainclear will take the 76mm (3”) round downpipe and the 115mm (4.5”) half round gutter into stock at the beginning of December 2018.


“Matt black has always been stocked for delivery in 24 hours mon-thurs, but the demand for the RAL 7016, Anthracite Grey, and customers’ preference for our next day delivery, has prompted us to add this ever more popular colour to the stocked ranges” Anthony Hitchman – Rainclear’s Acting Managing Director.

SnapIT 7016 Case Study Image 002The half round SnapIT aluminium gutter and swaged round downpipes are polyester powder coated in 7016 anthracite grey within an in-house PPC line ensuring an even and long-lasting finish. Made from Aluminium, a naturally occurring material which is abundantly available, fully recyclable and non-corrosive, this lightweight and easy to install system offered the contemporary style and green credentials required for the refurbishment of this building.


Aluminium in general is:

  • one of the most readily available and sustainable materials used in construction today.
  • can be infinitely recycled, losing less than 3% of its material properties during the recycling process.
  • Recycling uses 95% less energy than the extraction process and 75% of all aluminium ever produced is still in use today. 92-98% of aluminium from building demolition is recycled.
  • low maintenance, non-corrosive, non-combustible, weather-proof and immune to the harmful effects of UV rays and expected to last in excess of 25 years helping to extend a buildings serviceable life.
  • light weight - making it easier to transport and handle on site

SnapIT in particular is:

  • An innovative ‘bolt-less’ system - designed to click together without bolts or washers making it easy and swift to install.
