Brett Martin introduces the new Deepstyle 170

According to the BRE (BRE Repairing and Replacing Rainwater Goods), damaged and badly performing rainwater systems are one of the most common reasons for contractors being called back to a job, and with tighter budgets influencing the decision-making process, there is a clear need for low-cost, high quality products that deliver proven performance in the long term.

In order to meet the requirements of larger commercial projects, factories, warehouses, agricultural and residential roofs, Brett Martin Plumbing and Drainage has specifically developed the new Deepstyle 170 high-performance rainwater system which offers increased drainage capacity and allows larger roofs to be drained more efficiently.

The Deepstyle 170 has been designed with a super-sized 170mm profile, which has a capacity of 11.54 litres per second. As well as being able to accommodate the increased volumes of rainwater on larger roof areas, it also requires fewer discharge points, reducing the number of downpipes to provide both material and installation savings on projects.

Hayley Lowry, Marketing Manager, Brett Martin, said, “The robust and hard-wearing Deepstyle 170 is the ideal drainage solution for the larger roofs of farm buildings, factories, warehouse and apartment blocks. The drainage capacity alone provides opportunities for contractors to make savings on both downpipe system installation and underground drainage layouts.”

Manufactured from modern plastic materials at Brett Martin’s own quality-assured BS EN ISO 9001:2008 factory in Mallusk, the Deepstyle 170 system is a heavy-duty gutter system. Tested to EN 1462 Load Class H to withstand snow loading, the high gloss PVC system is also proven to retain its stunning aesthetic with UV protection providing long-term colour stability – backed by a 10-year colour warranty.

For ease of installation and to provide exceptional long-term sealing reliability, the system features new and innovative factory fitted ‘clip and seal’ technology on all fittings. A unique addition to Deepstyle 170, the clip and seal fully integrates with the fitting so that the specially designed captive seal is held securely within the fitting whilst the clip locks the seal firmly in place. When fitting the gutter, the clip provides just enough flex to allow the gutter to locate within the fitting, whilst a reassuring click locks the gutter securely into position, compressing the seal for superior sealing.

Available in black and grey, Deepstyle 170 integrates seamlessly with Brett Martin’s 110mm industrial downpipe system to complete the company’s high-capacity offering. Comprising 110mm plain-ended or single-socket downpipe options, with high quality PVCu fittings (including bends, branches, access pipes and clips), the system retains the adaptability essential in planning an industrial rainwater scheme.

Deepstyle 170 is the latest addition to Brett Martin’s rainwater portfolio which includes 106mm Prostyle, 112mm Roundstyle, 114mm Squarestyle, 115mm Deepstyle and 160mm High Capacity, in addition to the innovative and highly acclaimed Cascade range of cast-iron-effect guttering and downpipe profiles. Brett Martin’s comprehensive plumbing and drainage range is underpinned by ground support from the sales team, as well as a dedicated technical department to help with technical queries.
