Cast Aluminium: 26 Colours Available in 7 days

Heritage Cast Aluminium gutters and downpipes are a cost-effective alternative to Cast Iron being lighter and therefore easier to handle and fix, non-corrodible and durable with a life expectancy of 40 years and still 100% recyclable. The BBA approved in-house factory applied Polyester Powder Coated (PPC) Heritage Cast Aluminium gutters and downpipes in a choice of 26 standard colours are now consistently being delivered in 7 – 10 days.

Aluminium is already the low maintenance option for guttering but the factory applied PPC has a life expectancy of at least 15years in heavily polluted areas and 20 elsewhere, and extends the life of the product beyond 40 years. Only periodic maintenance is advised; applying a warm soapy water solution to bring back the original appearance – once in the Autumn and again in the Spring – while checking for joint integrity and removing any accumulated debris at the same.

Heritage Textured Black Cast Aluminium – Next Day Delivery

We’ve expanded into an additional warehouse in order to significantly increase the stock we hold of the most popular Textured Black colour in the Half- Round, Victorian Ogee and NOW 5 x 4 Moulded Ogeeprofiles so that these products are available for next day delivery…

…as long as you have place your order before Noon Mon-Thurs
(excl. Bank Holidays) (Saturday deliveries only by special arrangement and inevitably incur a surcharge)

26 Standard RAL Cast Aluminium colours

The colours that are available with 7-10day delivery time are determined by the 26 powder colours the manufacturer holds in stock. These may expand and evolve slowly as demand and fashions change, but currently they are:

26 Standard Cast Aluminium Colours

RAL 1011m – Brown Beige, RAL 1013m – Pearl White, RAL 1021m – Cadmium Yellow, RAL 2002m – Vermilion, RAL 3003m – Ruby Red, RAL 3005m – Wine Red, RAL 5003m – Sapphire Blue, RAL 5010m – Flower Blue, RAL 6005m – Moss Green, RAL 6018m – Yellow Green, RAL 7005m – Mouse Grey, RAL 7006m – Beige Grey, RAL 7012m – Basalt Grey, RAL 7015M – Slate Grey, RAL 7016M – Anthracite Grey, RAL 7024M – Graphite Grey, RAL 7036M – Platinum Grey, RAL 7037M – Dusty Grey, RAL 7038M – Agate Grey, RAL 8017M – Chocolate Brown, RAL 8019M – Grey Brown, RAL 9006M – Metallic Silver 80% gloss, RAL 9006G – Metallic Silver, RAL 9016M – White and RAL 9017M – Matt Black (see image for approximate colours – reproduced as guidance only as different screens and devices will display them differently)

All the colours have an attractive ‘matt’ finish as identified by the ‘M’ at the end of the RAL number, that is except for the Metallic Silver RAL 9006G which has an 80% Gloss finish.

We would always recommend ordering the Metallic Silver Polyester Powder Coated rather than the uncoated mill finish (unless you plan to hand paint it yourself on-site*), not only to benefit from the extra protection PPC offers but also to even out any differences in finishes between cast gutters, extruded downpipes and fabricated fittings.
* Hand painting on-site: plain mill Aluminium gutters and downpipes can be site painted using a zinc phosphate aluminium primer followed by two coats of gloss paint.

Special Colours

Almost any BS or RAL colour is available to ‘special order’ but these will incur a longer time to delivery and an additional surcharge as the special colour powder must be ordered and applied. If you have a very special colour in mind, get in touch and we will find out if the colour is available in the powder and what surcharges will apply to your size of order.

The Finishing Touch

As more homeowners choose to invest in home improvements rather than move house or opt to design and build their dream home, choosing a unique coloured rainwater system can be seen as a differentiator instead of simply a necessity and a simple way to add a design flourish or finishing touch to a project while also ensuring high performance and protection of the building well into the future.
