Swish - Kayflow’s New Anthracite Grey Guttering’s
March 2020

Swish - Kayflow’s New Anthracite Grey Guttering is a Perfect Match for Contemporary Window Shades.

Complementing the recent trend for new build and refurbished buildings to feature grey windows, doors and roofline installations, Kayflow, one of the UK’s leading names in environmentally responsible building products has launched its latest square gutter system in anthracite grey.

Offering a modern finish, together with the benefit of a higher flow rate than standard half round systems, Kayflow’s contemporary guttering solutions are manufactured using up to 84% of post-consumer, recycled PVC. After adding the trending grey shade to the existing colour swatch of white, black, brown and caramel in its square gutter system, Kayflow now offers this full colour range for its square, half round, Ogee and Deepflow guttering profiles.

Explaining the decision, Andy Swain, the company’s National Business Development Manager - drainage, commented: “Increasingly, we’re seeing innovative building plans specified by architects that feature grey windows and doors. The design style originated in urban areas and within town house projects, however its appeal has increased significantly, and the window shade now frequently features within suburban and rural homes.”

“At Kayflow, we choose to create and offer products that meet the design requirements for contemporary and classic architecture alike, with guttering systems that don’t just deliver a visual impact but offer environmental credentials that make sense and demonstrate our responsible approach to manufacturing. Not only do our guttering systems use recycled materials in their production - creating significantly less CO2 - but they’re manufactured using a dual extrusion process; which enables the outer layer of the gutter to be made with a higher quality grade of PVC, helping to retain the profile’s gloss and colour. The systems are purpose-made to keep the gutters vibrant for longer when compared to alternative products that haven’t been manufactured using similar methods.”

Kayflow’s kitemarked square guttering systems are supported with a 10-year guarantee and offer the capacity to manage higher flows of water - making them ideal for installation around larger roofs. Easy to fit, the guttering can work alongside both round or square downpipe systems, offering an attractive aesthetic for modern homes, older houses, and conservatories.

To further support the guttering’s overall appearance, it can be supplied with a range of additional products such as metal rise and fall brackets, side or top hung rafter brackets, and rainwater diverters and hoppers - as well as a full range of complementary high-quality fascia, soffit and dry verge fittings.
