ALUTEC EXPANDS FLUSH-FIT DOWNPIPE RANGEResponding to customer demand for greater sizing variety, aluminium rainwater specialist Alutec has launched a number of new sizes within its Flush-fit range of downpipes.

Designed to offer increased options for a broad spectrum of properties, the new additions build on the success of the existing 76mm circular and 72x72mm square options, which have proven extremely popular since their launch.

For small to medium properties, the range now includes a 63mm circular design.  At the larger end of the scale, a 102mm circular and 102x76mm and 102x102mm square options have also been added, giving specifiers, housebuilders and installers a much wider choice for properties of all sizes.

Nick Glover, Head of Sales and Marketing from Alutec commented: “The Flush-fit downpipes have been tremendously successful to date but the feedback we’ve been getting from customers and merchants is that a wider range of options would make it easier to choose an appropriately sized pipe for the flow rate of their project.  The new additions will meet this need, as well as continuing to deliver the aesthetics, longevity and excellent performance that specifiers have come to expect from all of our rainwater products.”

Available in 21 standard colours, the Flush-fit downpipes are compatible with Alutec’s Evolve and Aligator aluminium guttering systems, offering a sleek aesthetic solution for contemporary building designs, thanks to its internal hidden downpipe joints.   The architectural grade polyester powder coating ensures long lasting kerb appeal with excellent colour and gloss retention, despite prolonged outdoor exposure.

Like all of Alutec’s high quality aluminium rainwater systems, the Flush-fit downpipes are manufactured in accordance with the appropriate British or European standard including BS 8530:2010.  What’s more, as all products are manufactured from marine grade aluminium, they are impervious to corrosion and virtually no maintenance is required throughout their exceptionally long life expectancy of 50 years or more.
