Gutters are used for collection of rainwater. The rainwater is guided through downpipes into a sewer, other disposal point or collector. Gutters are produced in many variations and their use is various. In general gutters are available in different forms and numerous applications. Two important types of gutters can be distinguished, namely the suspended gutter and the box gutter.
Downpipes are produced in various types. The most common is the round tube, but tubes with square, rectangular and other forms can be applied. The standard rainwater downpipes come with a soldered seam or a double seam. The diameter of the tubes is extended at one end, so that different lengths can be put together.
To complete the drainage system the gutters and pipes have to be fitted together with stop end, brackets, elbows, plug-in gutter outlets etc..
