Client: Lewes District Council
Type of works: supplied Mustang® aluminium guttering system, anti-vandal pipe guard and canalis downpipe.
Lewes District Council specified ARP's Mustang® aluminium guttering system on a refurbishment project at Hillcrest Court, Newhaven. ARP's Mustang® 125mm O.G gutter system was specified on the 6 blocks of 3 storey flats as well as their anti vandal pipe guard and canalis downpipe.
Choosing a guttering material with a long life expectancy was important as the flats are located on the East Sussex coast line. The aluminium was recommended as suitable for the harsh coastal environment.
Richard Hallett, Senior Maintenance Surveyor says the Mustang® aluminium guttering system was specified due to a number of reasons. "ARP's Mustang® was chosen due to the fact it is maintenance-free. It's one continuous piece of aluminium, extruded on site, which reduces the number of joints and therefore the potential for leaks. ARP provided excellent pre-contract assistance with the specification and recommending approved contractors to carry out the installation."
ARP's "Mustang® Gutter System" attained British Board of Agrement (B.B.A.) approval under Cert. No. 91/2625 in 1991.
