A building’s facade helps create a good first impression for the business that’s inside. Striking architecture or a unique aesthetic can tell customers a lot about a company; that they’re forward-thinking, or environmentally aware, for example.
But practical elements can be just as telling. While abstract features and the latest technology will surely impress visitors, it’s just as important to keep them safe and well protected.
That’s where design components such as coated aluminium rain gutter systems come in. Built to protect properties from flooding, mould, mildew and various other consequences of water damage, gutters lead rainwater away from a building’s foundations and, in turn, help to increase its longevity.
Although they serve an essential functional purpose, gutters can also enhance the overall look of a building’s exterior. All it takes is careful selection of the correct materials and colours to strike a balance between style and substance.
Coated aluminium rain gutter systems
For many building projects, coated aluminium rain gutter systems are the answer. Thanks to its unique properties, aluminium is ideal for creating high-performance roofing details in a broad range of designs and styles. Most homes and commercial buildings use aluminium guttering.
At approximately one third the weight of steel or copper, aluminium is soft and lightweight but incredibly strong. Its malleable properties mean it can be easily formed, plus it benefits from good corrosion resistance and durability.
Aluminium rain gutters are also non-toxic and fully recyclable whilst offering better colour retention and lower costs. With increasing environmental concerns surrounding plastic, many are seeing aluminium as a better option.
For leading European coated aluminium manufacturer Elval Colour, there’s no other material the company works with. Ydoral, Elval Colour’s range of coated aluminium sheets and strips for rain gutter systems, features a wide choice of pre-painted aluminium materials.
Ydoral can be manufactured to custom shades and to match the natural finishes of more expensive materials such as zinc or copper.
It’s a combination of experience and in-house technology that means Elval Colour can offer high quality standards suitable for every application and process.
From casting and coating to finishing operations, the company has access to every step of the manufacturing process to ensure quality is controlled at all stages.
Ydoral is available in the following standard colours:
