drain, drains, drainage systems

Currently, various rain plum systems are available to consumers, which are often made of steel and covered with modern polymer colors. First of all, in our article we will consider what this material has gained its popularity. Its first advantage is fire safety. This is very important, because if you invested a lot of money in the construction of a country house, you will use it year -round, then it is important for you to protect it as much as possible from fire and fire. At the same time, galvanized gutters will be the most reasonable choice. Sheet steel, which does not have a polymer coating, is characterized by low noise insulation. If metal gutters are installed in the house, then during the wind or rain a noise will be clearly heard.

Another important quality of galvanized steel is high strength with small weight. More stronger are only those gutters that are made of tank-toy alloy. However, unlike galvanized gutters, they cost about ten times more. Gloval steel gutter systems are not at all inferior in durability by plastic, because they have increased protection against corrosion. It is also necessary to admit that without such a barrier, the metal begins to suffer from the effects of rust about five years later.

Criteria for choosing a drainage system

The gutter is best chosen in shape, and if they are covered with polymer paints, then you can choose by color. If we talk about the form as a factor, then the trays are embossed, rectangular, semicircular. The same form should be used plugs and brackets. But gutters made of galvanized steel consist not only of the pipe and gutters, but they also differ in the section. So, you can choose between square and round section.

As a rule, all elements of the system are performed in one style. For example, if the pipe is square, then the funnel is also used such. But unlike plastic sets, metal gutters hang over the funnel, and not join it. The metal drainage system is more profitable in relation to fasteners, because steel has more rigidity than plastic. For metal plums, it is allowed to install holders with an interval of up to 90 cm, while for polymer rain plums – not more than 60 cm.
