Rainfall intensity The Building Regulations 2002 Approved Document H and BS EN 12056-3: 2000 provide detailed information on rainfall throughout the UK by geographical location and frequency of occurrence. The flow rates for Hunter pvcu gutter systems have been determined from tests carried out in accordance with the test procedure in BS EN 12056-3: 2000.
Gutter selection Although aesthetic appearance is an important aspect in the selection of a particular gutter system, the following factors also need to be taken into consideration as they could influence the final choice of system. 1. The size of gutter and its flow capacity. 2. Whether the gutter is fitted level or to a fall. 3. If end or centre outlet position for downpipes are adopted. 4. The length of gutter to an outlet/downpipe.
Flow capacity The maximum flow capacity of different Hunter gutter systems can be compared using the tables available in the brochure. The capacity of each system varies depending on profile, size and whether the gutter is fitted level or to a fall. For design purposes eaves gutters are normally sized to ensure the calculated run-off does not exceed 90% of the gutter capacity. It also recommended that gutters are fixed level as this enables the gutter to be fitted as high as possible to ensure the correct relationship is maintained at the roof edge.
Effects of Valleys Where valleys occur it is good practice to position an outlet adjacent to the internal angle to deal with the concentrated discharge that is likely as such points during peak flow conditions. Depending on the size of roof it may also be beneficial to fit a corner hopper where the flow is considerable.
Rainwater pipe sizes Always check the size of downpipe has been selected to meet the necessary capacity to accommodate the maximum flow from any of our gutter systems.
