Project Specification

 

Saint Gobain PAM UK “Cyclone” steel guttering has been specified on a very prestigious carbon neutral, eco-friendly development of domestic dwellings.Cyclone was specified due to its sustainability credentials and the mere fact that steel has the lowest carbon footprint of all materials used to manufacture rain water products.The developer had identified that Saint Gobain is at the forefront of developing eco-friendly products for the construction industry. “Cyclones” features and benefits and the fact it is the lowest cost steel system in the UK today finally sealed the deal.Ideal for traditional and modern buildings for both new build and refurbishment applications, the new, lightweight Cyclone range offers a cost-effective alternative to plastic gutters, with the strength and longevity of a steel system.With no risk of shrinking, leaking or colour fading over its guaranteed life, the steel system is easy to install with no specialist tools or skills required. In addition, very little maintenance is needed, only the general industry recommended twice yearly cleaning of any debris collected in the gutter, and washing down with warm soapy water.The dwellings also contained, ground source heat pump, solar panels and a green roof.This is the 2nd development of these house types that can leased as holiday homes away from the maddening crowds, although from the outside they look like something a hobbit would live, the inside a spacious whilst made from traditional, re-cycled and well insulated modern materials.
