ARP has provided products from their Britannia Cast Iron rainwater range for a new housing development in Hollingbourne. Wealden Homes are a prestigious housing developer specialising in quality new build homes in Kent and the South East. This latest development in Hollingbourne consisted of 3 detached bungalows and 11 4/5 houses. Wealden Homes required a rainwater system that was in keeping with the surrounding area for the 3 detached bungalows.
ARP’s Area Sales Manager for the area, David Capel, called on site, gained the installer information and a bill of quantities to build a quotation. ARP provide free samples as part of their service offering, along with site visits and site measures. ARP won the contract due to their speed in providing the requested sample, quality of product and the competitive quotation they presented.
The products specified were Britannia Cast Iron Plain Half Round Gutter and Britannia Cast Iron Cast Collared Circular Rainwater Pipe painted in black, within their in-house wet paint line. Cast Iron was chosen as it was in keeping with the aesthetics of the surrounding area and suited the new build properties.
ARP’s Britannia Cast Iron range is die cast and is in keeping with the style of traditional cast iron, so an ideal replacement for existing cast iron systems. With an expected life span, in excess of 100 years, Cast Iron is a long-lasting material ideal for rainwater systems, only needing occasional repainting and once it reaches the end of its useful life, can be recycled.
