Planning Policy

The material properties of cast iron have long been recognised and it is these which make it particularly suitable for the rainwater systems of listed buildings and wherever conservation is an issue.

In its revised planning Practice Guide (PPS5) for historic Environment, the department of communities and Local Government, and English Heritage it not only advises a change from original material’s usually requires building consent but also under point 189 supports the use of materials appropriate to the relevant period, such as cast iron for gutters and downpipes for many Georgian and Victorian Buildings.

No other material can match the character, durability, strength or appeal of cast iron and most importantly only cast iron can preserve the intentions of the original architect and the aesthetic integrity of the building.

Strength

High resistance to impact (accidental and vandalism) a major consideration for inner cities, town shopping precincts and schools etc.

Secure against – heavy snow falls and high winds.

Rigidity to comfortably accommodate the weight of ladders for routine maintenance.

The physical properties of cast iron will be sustained throughout its life (provided adequately painted and maintained).

Quiet/Noiseless.

Will not rattle in high winds.

Will not twist/creak due to temperature changes.

Excellent sound deadening properties – therefore no significant sound of running or dripping water disturbing the peace.
