Aluminium Unlimited

Downpipes and Accessories

Available for both domestic and trade sales

Aluminium Unlimited - downpipes With growing numbers of people now building luxury properties to their own specifications, there is an ever increasing demand for products to not only do what they were designed to do but to also be good value for money and have a greater life expectancy. So to meet these demands, Aluminium Unlimited are proud to add their own range of aluminium down pipes, which enhance our other aluminium products currently on the market.

The two most popular styles are the Classic and Slimline ranges. Both these styles of pipes have the same tough baked-on polyester finish, available in a vast range of colours in either satin or high gloss finishes. These down pipes are straightforward to fit, and once installed only require washing down with mild soapy water to retain their 'show room' quality appearance. Each pipe comes with a ten year guarantee against fading, and is available in a range of sizes (diameters) to suit any type of home - old or new.

For people who are building new or refurbishing their own homes, who want a period feel, we offer our Classic range of cast eared down pipes. The cast aluminium collars are individually hand-made exactly as they have always been done without the drawbacks of difficult to maintain cast iron/rust problems. These collars are then tough polyester finished and bonded to the required length of pipe. Shoes are also cast in the same was, as a single item, and are almost a work of art in themselves. This style of pipe rather than spoiling the look of a property by being an eyesore, actually adds the finishing touch.

For anybody wishing to fit these pipes themselves, we supply complete kits which include full instructions and all the necessary stainless steel fixings to complete the job.

For modern properties that want a clean stylish look, our Slimline range is perfect. The end of each pipe, or fitting, is simply swaged (expanded) to allow the next pipe to fit inside. Fixings are achieved using a 'wrap around' style stand off clip and stainless steel screws. The style of this pipe allows extremely quick fitting times and a single pipe length up to 6 metres, allowing properties to be piped in one drop with no possible leak problems.

Again, the Slimline range is available in full kit form, basic pipe and fittings only, to complete first time fitter kits.

After it has been carefully removed the hopper or other rainwater item is thoroughly checked for any serious defects, after which we clean all the old paint and rust off back to clean metal using high pressure sand blasting. The hopper is then checked again in case any minor repairs are needed before the whole hopper is finished in the same tough baked on polyester coating used on all our aluminium products, available in traditional looking satin or gloss finish.
Aluminium Unlimited prides itself on its personal service throughout its product range and full back up and advice is always available from our own fitting teams.
