Client: Department of Local Government and Environment
Type of works: supplied Mustang® continuous aluminium guttering and Colonnade downpipe
On the Isle of Man, principal contractors, NK Joinery Ltd are currently involved in a project run by the Department of Local Government and Environment. The project involves the refurbishment of 64 properties in Jurby, North West of the Island.
Jurby is a wide open and exposed coastal area with severe weather conditions, which meant choosing a material that would withstand the harsh environment.
The properties at Jurby previously had seamless aluminium guttering lasting in excess of 20 years but due to the timber substrate refurbishment was required.
Mustang® continuous aluminium guttering was specified by government architects due to its durability and ease of installation. As Les Nicol of NK Joinery Ltd comments, "As well as durability, choosing a product that is environmentally friendly and sustainable is also important. Aluminium is the greenest option by far. The aluminium that was previously installed at the Jurby site was taken down and recycled by a local merchant, showing how it can be recycled and reused. Aside from it being good for the environment, it is also aesthetically pleasing."
ARP's "Mustang® Gutter System" attained British Board of Agrement (B.B.A.) approval under Cert. No. 91/2625 in 1991.
