Commercial Box Gutters
Box gutters are most usually found on commercial buildings and factories. They differ from regular gutters in that they are generally much wider and made from a custom bent piece of sheet metal.
A box gutter needs to be larger because its purpose is to get water from a large flat roof down to the ground as quickly as possible and prevent water leaking into the roof space.
Due to the commercial box gutter being so wide and flat, they are prone to rust and leaks, as water can sit in them for long periods of time.
If this is something you've experienced, you'll also know how hard it is to find a roof plumber willing to replace commercial box gutters. But it's not a problem at AllCoast Roofing. We are ready, willing and able to measure and install commercial box gutters.
Installation of Box Gutters
There's a number of installation methods associated with box gutters. We've seen a variety of custom brackets and hanging systems installed on commercial buildings. A common one is a specialised bracket that mounts to the "rib" of a standing seam roof, then attaches to the lip of the eaves-trough. Another is an adjustable rod and nut system common to half round style guttering.
Because most commercial box gutters come in 3 metre sections — which makes it necessary to rivet, seam and seal the lengths together and make them waterproof — your installer must be an experienced roofer.
Box Gutter Leaf Guard Installations
Box gutters are commonly found on industrial and commercial roofing but they are becoming more common in modern residential roofing. They are boxed in all around and prone to internal flooding when filled with a lot of leaves. We recommend keeping your box gutter clear by installing leaf guard. We can install your gutter guard to fit any sized box gutter. We pre clean and flush out debris from your box gutter before installation, then we lay the gutter mesh tailored to fit.
