Without a suitable drainage system in place, heavy rainfall can see your roof become waterlogged, with the potential to severely damage its structure. Our specialists recommend opting for Syphonic Gutters and Drainage to reduce your annual Planned Preventative Maintenance costs. So, how does it work?
Syphonic drainage systems are designed to flow partially full, HS RoofClad’s Syphonic Gutters and Drainage systems operate at full capacity – meaning water is syphoned from the roof and then down into the drain at high speeds. During periods of heavy rainfall, outlet drains fill completely so air flow is cut off to the pipe, resulting in a higher release rate.
Syphonic Gutters and Drainage technology services the use of a gravity induced vacuum pump to syphon water at high speeds from multiple drains at one time.
Activated by rainfall filling the drain above its anti-vortex plate, air flow to the pipe is then cut off – the natural gravitational flow vacuums water horizontally away from the roof structure, pumping rainfall towards a single downpipe to an end point of your choice.
The innovative technology behind Syphonic Gutters and Drainage mean that there are no gradients found in traditional down pipes – the systems’ vacuum does all of the work instead, with anti-vortex plates making it near impossible for anything other than water to enter the system. Reducing the need for regular maintenance is a key benefit of this drainage system, however occasional Gutter Cleaning by one of our recommended competent professionals is recommended, especially in coastal areas.
With an average of 1,372mm of rain in the UK each year, it is imperative that your drainage system is capable of preventing damage during periods of heavy rainfall.
