Terraces rescue their run-off heritage

PRODUCT FOCUS Plumbing and drainage VEKA

Veka has launched a PVCu equivalent of the 'troughing' rainwater system common to northern England's 19th and early 20th century terraced properties. The guttering of solid timber batons and channels runs continuously for the length of the terrace to be downpiped at one end and, until now, replacement sections have had to be specially manufactured to fit. Veka's Heritage Rainwater System allows the whole run to be replaced. It is virtually indistinguishable from the original but is lightweight, easy to fit and impervious to rot and corrosion.

The guttering is available in black, white or brown, with a wide range of accessories.
