Installation of metal seamless gutters tailored to size
Seamless gutters (made of aluminium, steel copper, titanium-zinc) manufactured by Rynni are very easy to install. All you need is a set of basic roofing tools, including gutter outlet punch, pipe crimper and end cap crimper. These basic tools are essential and will make the installation of gutter system go smoothly.
First stage of seamless guttering installation
Before you start the fitting, place the gutter on a flat surface to fit fascia board hangers onto the gutter. How to do it? You simply put them inside the seamless gutter and lock. The gutter with hangers positioned inside becomes rigid. Recommended interval between hangers is 40-45cm. For fitting hangers to the back of the gutter you should use screws (4,8×35 mm).
What to do next to fit seamless guttering?
1. The next step in installation of guttering is marking a drop outlet position at the botom of the gutter. Marked drop outlet shape needs to be cut- out and the outlet is then fitted from the top, adhered and secured with remomable rivets. Then the horizontal gutter must be sealed with end caps that are positioned on adhesive and crimped on both ends of the gutter (right and left).
2. The gutter prepared in such a way should be screwed to the fascia board of the building. In case of a large size of the building (industrial buildings longer than 30 m), the gutter should be partitioned into 2 elements. Both segments are then connected with adhesive and rivets (colours are available) or screws.
3. The next step in installation of seamless guttering is fitting of down pipes. You need to attach pipe clamps every 1.5 -2 m, measure the length of pipes and the distance between the gutter and the wall, including elbows. All the elements should be joined and secured with rivets or screws. Down pipes are connected to the sewage pipes with a special connector.
