The Alutec Evolve range has been extended with the addition of a new 130x85mm box profile gutter and 72mm square downpipe.
Highly recyclable, the resources used in the Evolve range make it the product of choice for sustainable building, as aluminium is one of the only materials that can be recycled again and again without loss of quality, and using just 5% of the original processing energy. The Evolve box profile and downpipe will be launched at Ecobuild.
The Evolve range is extremely durable and lightweight, with a life expectancy of 50 years or more. The polyester powder coating ensuring a hardwearing, fade resistant finish, which will last the lifetime of the product. It also benefits from an innovative JuraJoint, a new method of jointing aluminium gutter that combines the advantages of EPDM rubber with the security of a high performance silicone.
The new box profile is compatible with the 76mm circular Flush-fit and the 72mm square Flush-fit downpipe already available in Marley Alutec's product range and has the same 1.6mm wall thickness of as the current Evolve systems. It is available in 21 standard colours, with a reduced rate for the Heritage Black finish.
Marley Alutec will also be launching a new soffit and fascia system at the exhibition. A 100 percent recycled waste polythene core with aluminium bonded to the front and rear, the system installs as easily as PVC, using the same tools, and has a life expectancy of 50 years or more. Only 4mm thick, making it perfect for covering wood or PVC, the system uses the best architectural grade PVDF fade resistant paint finish, in a choice of 8 RAL colour options, with bespoke profiles also available.
Bob Randall, MD of Marley Alutec, comments, "This year's Ecobuild gives us a platform to demonstrate that all of our rainwater systems have the ability to combine sleek aesthetics with inherent performance capabilities, as well as maintaining affordability. In addition, the low whole life costs of the Alutec ranges, combined with responsible sourcing and environmental benefits, really do make them the most sustainable and cost-effective rainwater systems available in the UK today."
