  • 1m long, 87mm Plain Galvanised Steel Intermediate Downpipe Pipe

  • Manufactured with Roofart's double stiffening technology for better rigidity and strength
  • Used to make up longer runs of downpipe or between two bends as a swan-neck
  • Male end of pipe fits inside plain end of pipe or shoe.

  • Important - Plain galvanised steel products should be stored in the dry prior to installation.  Storing in wet conditions whilst gutters or downpipes are stacked together can cause material to dull down quicker and more irregularly and in some cases 'white rust' will form where material are in contact with each other.

  • Why would I need a 1m length of downpipe?
    1m lengths of downpipe can be used to add to an existing run of pipe to create the desired length rather than using a 3m length. A 1m length is also used between two bends in order to create an extended swan-neck.  Importantly you need to keep the socketed male end on the pipe when trying to create the swan neck.

  • How do you install 1m length of steel downpipes?
    1m lengths are installed just the same as 3m lengths.  They are push fit and should be secured to other bends or outlets with either a self-tapping screw or a rivet.  Note that once clamped into the downpipe holders the grip is very tight and there will be no movement between components.

  • Do RoofArt downpipes come in other lengths?
    Yes, Roofart also supply steel downpipes in short 1000mm lengths that can be used to either extend downpipe runs or used between steel pipe bends to create swan-necks.

  • Do RoofArt steel downpipes come in different diameters?
    Yes. There is the 87mm diameter steel downpipe which is compatible with a 125mm gutter system. The 100mm diameter steel downpipe is compatible with the 150mm gutter system.

  • How easy is the RoofArt Scandic rainwater system to install?
    Contrary to common misconception. Modern steel rainwater system such as RoofArt are very simple to install with push fit and clip accessories similar to that on a PVC system. Important to note that there is no need to weld joint or use and sealants on the RoofArt Scandic System.

  • How should I cut galvanised steel downpipes?
    Contrary to common misconception. Modern steel rainwater system such as RoofArt are very simple to install with push fit and clip accessories similar to that on a PVC system. Important to note that there is no need to weld joint or use and sealants on the RoofArt Scandic System.

  • Do I need to treat the cut ends of galvanised downpipe?
    If cutting with a hacksaw or tin snips there is no need to treat cut ends as the zinc element within the material is ‘self-healing’ and so does not need treating.

  • How long does a galvanised steel downpipe last?
    Whilst the RoofArt warranty period is 5 years on the plain galvanised system, we would expect the overall lifespan of the product to be in excess of 20 years if installed correctly. There are however many factors that can affect the lifespan of any rainwater system such as location, maintenance, weather conditions etc.

  • Will my galvanised steel downpipe rust?
    The zinc coating will protect galvanised gutters from rusting.  Only if the material incurs deep scratches will the integrity of the material be compromised, and rusting can occur.

  • What is 'white rust'?
    White rust is a white powdery staining that can appear on the surface of galvanised material if exposed to hydrogen and oxygen. It would take considerable oxidisation for the integrity of the material to be compromised but it will nevertheless show as an unsightly marking on the guttering. To avoid white rusting on RoofArt galvanised guttering it is vital that the material does not to get wet before installation or whilst being stored before being installed. Packs of gutters or pipes that are wet when stacked together will likely generate white rust marks at points where the wet material is touching each other.  If the guttering does become wet before being stored it is important to dry them off and keep them separated before installation.  Note that Southern Sheeting will protect the material from the elements whilst storing and delivering.

  • Can the metal gutters be recycled?
    Yes, Roofart rainwater components are fully recyclable other than the rubber gaskets which can be removed.

  • Do galvanised gutters react with other materials?
    Yes.  There are some other material that can corrode and shorted the life of galvanised steel guttering.  We do not recommend that Steel guttering is used in conjunction with aluminium or copper building materials due to the electrolyte reaction that can occur either through direct contact or in some instances when rainwater transmits corrosive properties.
    We also do not recommend galvanised steel rainwater systems in conjunction with certain timber products that can contain high levels of acid such as cedar, oak and chestnut.

  • Will plain galvanised steel downpipes change colour?
    Plain galvanised steel guttering starts life as a bight spangled shiny finish, but this will dull down over time and eventually become greyer in appearance.  This is usually the desired appearance for steel gutters and means the gutter blends into the building and surroundings.  It is however very difficult to determine how long it will take to dull down as there are many factors involved.

  • Can I replace just one section of steel pipe if it got damaged?
    Yes, RoofArt steel guttering is sectional, so like PVC products you can easily swap out sections of pipe if you need to assuming you have not riveted the section on at the joints.

  • Can I get RoofArt Scandic rainwater system in different colours?
    Yes, RoofArt Scandic in manufactured in many different colours.  However, there is currently limited colour range in the UK consisting of black, dark grey and plain galvanised.
