Ultraframe Box Gutters

When a conservatory roof slopes backwards towards the host wall a box gutter is required. Ultraframe offers a choice of three main options:

  • 165mm standard
  • 265mm standard
  • Custom design

The latter option is used when the design is particularly bespoke, with Ultraframe using every ounce of its design and fabrication expertise.

Support Specification

It is vital when box gutters are specified that - even at sales stage - the issue of providing adequate support is considered. Attachment to timber fascias alone is NOT sufficient and brick piers, gallows brackets, and other hangers must be considered.

Box Gutters MUST be supported at no more than 2.25m centres. All of Ultraframe’s box gutters are insulated to minimise condensation risk. Where box gutters are jointed, they are sleeved and bolted.

Injection moulded adapters are used to ensure seamless and watertight jointing between the Classic uPVC gutter and the aluminium box gutter. Each adapter comes complete with its own dry jointing gasket and measured ‘shot’ of Gutterbond proprietary sealant to ensure rapid completion even in the inclement weather typically found in the U.K.

Covid-19 Statement

This is to announce that we are shutting the Ultraframe factory as part of the national effort to keep everyone as safe as possible. Safety is always paramount. We will review the situation – while we anticipate we will cease production for at least 3 weeks, we remain flexible and will reopen as soon as it is safe to do so and customers are ready.

We have done a lot of work to ensure we have stock of all products and that our factory can operate completely safely with all employees working to highest standards of hygiene and distancing at all times. This will stand us in very good stead when we come to resume supply.

In the meantime if you have any questions, queries or require some help, please contact us on the usual email addresses. These inboxes will be monitored every day by employees working safely at home and we will attempt to get back to you if a response is needed.

If you have any quotes that you would like us to complete please send them to us and we will aim to complete them for you.

If you have any orders that you want to be drawn please send these to us too. This will help us ensure your orders are ready for manufacture as soon as we re-open. Again we have set up our team so they can do this safely from home.

Finally I just want to thank you all for your business and most of all to wish you well over the next few weeks and that you and your people come through this safely.

If you have any other questions do send them to our normal contact addresses as I have said, some of which are listed below, just in case you don’t have them to hand if you too are at home.

Kind Regards,

Julian Slade

CEO Ultraframe
