How do you install steel gutter bends?
Steel gutter bends can be either connected directly to the outlet or to the socketed end of a downpipe. On the bottom end of the bend it can fit inside a plain end of pipe or another pipe bend to create a swan-neck. You should always secure Steel downpipe bends using either a self-tapping screw or a rivet (not supplied).
Can you connect steel gutter bends back-to-back?
Yes, a swan-neck bend can be created by connecting bends directly into one another.
How do I create an extended swan-neck bend?
Extended swan necks to bring you back towards the house under a soffit for example can be created by adding a cut to length piece of downpipe. It is important however that the length of pipe still has the male socketed end on it. A cut length of pipe with two plain ends will not be able to fit to the second bend. We always recommend that you buy a length of 1m pipe for every extended swan neck that you are trying to make.
Why 60 deg and not 112.5 deg or 45 deg like in PVC brands?
This is just the way that most steel rainwater system manufacturers make them. They do the same job and you’d be hard pushed to tell the difference when holding a PVC offset up against a steel offset.
Do you make a 90 deg bend to wrap around the corner of a building?
Not currently. But this is an item that RoofArt have been looking closer at and we will list them as stock as soon as they are released. Alternatively, there are other brands of steel gutter that are compatible with RoofArt that could be purchased elsewhere if this is a must have item.
Can you use this as a downpipe shoe?
You could use a 60 degree bend as a shoe, but we advise the specific shoe component that also features a rolled drip edge.
