Our Premier Steel 6″ half round gutter system pre-painted in White offers a sustainable, high performance and cost effective solution for the control of rain drainage on all types of buildings. Manufactured from high quality, zinc coated 24g galvanized steel, a high percentage of which is recycled material; Premier Steel is competitively priced to ensure that it will not compromise project budgets or sustainability requirements. Premier Steel offers minimal thermal movement and UV stability. It will not crack, fade, blister or peel, is highly resistant to corrosion and virtually maintenance free – all key performance factors for it increasingly being specified in preference to plastic, zinc, cast iron or aluminum systems.
Hot-dip galvanized steel has been effectively used for more than 150 years. The value of hot-dip galvanizing stems from the relative corrosion resistance of zinc, which under most service conditions, is considerably better than iron and steel. In addition to forming a physical barrier against corrosion, zinc, applied as a hot-dip galvanized coating, cathodically protects exposed steel.
Furthermore, galvanizing for protection of iron and steel is favored because of its low cost, the ease of application, and the extended maintenance-free service that it also provides. Galvanized Steel is an excellent solution for Northern climates with snow and ice conditions. A strong and durable metal that contracts one half as much as aluminum.
