Our aluminium gutter moulding is essentially an aluminium sheet that has been shaped and moulded with a gentle curve to create the 'gutter' pipe or tube shape. The lip of the aluminium guttering is shorter and the back panel can easily be mounted to flat surfaces.
Also referred to as 'J' section, this moulding can be used in a variety of ways. The curved fold will easily fit to the edges of worktops, steps or flat surfaces to create a smooth trim.
However, due to the recognisable shape, in some instances our gutter moulding is used for this purpose. Since the lip is relatively small compared to aluminium guttering or UPVC guttering, then the moulding works best on smaller structures.
The role of any guttering is to collect and drain rain water away from the roof and safely distributes it off the side of any building or structure. Keeping water off the roof prevents leaks and further damage to the property.
Is aluminium guttering better than UPVC?
Plastic or UPVC guttering is an inexpensive material however over time plastics can become brittle. They do not stand up so well against stormy weather because the material is light and can easy be moved by force. Usually there are ridges where pieces of UPVC guttering connect which can also cause blockages.
Aluminium, on the other hand, is still as lightweight and as easy to assemble but the material is incredibly durable and will stand the test of time with very little maintenance.
Some homeowners and businesses also prefer the look of aluminium over plastic.
All of our aluminium gutter moulding is available in 6063T. It has a good surface finish and high corrosion resistance.
