Radius Gutter Installation Guidelines


To fit Radius or Straight Grp gutter plan your installation before commencing work. Grp gutter is supplied in approx. 2 metre lengths and should be handled with care to avoid splitting or shattering (CAUTION: this product is much more susceptible to damage & knocks than pvc equivalents).

HMRKN1 gutter brackets should be spaced at a maximum of 800 mm apart along each gutter. The gutter can either be used level (due to high flow rate) or to a 1:350 fall on long runs. Ideally space brackets to give an even support along each 2 metre run.

To install gutter brackets use at least 2 screws (ideally Zinc & Yellow or long life equivalents) to each support. Ensure all brackets are fitted flush against your fascia board, and either level or with a slight fall as listed above.

Fix all 2 metre Grp gutter sections by using SFA to seal each joint. This should be applied to provide an overspill seal to avoid any possibility of leaks. Ideally apply sufficient to cause a slight overspill as each section is joined.

Stop ends and running outlets/unions do not have built in rubber seals, and these should be installed using bitumen based mastic with a slight overspill as above. Running outlets will need to situated above each downpipe, and care should be taken in drilling a hole & then cutting an appropriate aperture for the loose running outlets provided. Ensure a good seal to the outlet flange.

Use standard square 65mm downpipes or our HMRDS2 adaptor if a round downpipe is required.

Ensure all unions, outlets and stop ends are watertight before dropping scaffold.

*Soudal FixAll is a weatherproof adhesive which is suitable for all joints/unions. Standard colours are white & black. We cannot recommend normal silicones as these rely on a surface skin to create a seal; invariably this deteriorates with time & will eventually cause leakage.
