Installation Guide – Installing the Gutter
Once all the brackets are in place, you can
install the main guttering.
Push the first gutter length into the outlet and then clip
it into its fascia brackets. This is done most easily by
tilting the gutter to fit under the back clip and then straightening
it under the front clip. To allow for expansion in hot weather,
should be taken to ensure the gutter end is in line with
the insertion depth mark (5).
All fittings provide for expansion and contraction of
the gutter. When installing the gutter, make sure it does
not go past the insertion depth mark in the fitting.
Use a union clip to join the first and second lengths.
The joint is made by clipping the two ends into the union
clip, which is also secured to the fascia with a single
gutter screw (5).
At a corner, hold a 90º angle (or 45º angle for
a bay) in place to mark where the gutter is to be cut before
you fit the angle (6).
Cut the last length of gutter to the correct size. At the
end of the gutter run, fit an
external stopend, clipped in place in the same way as outlets,
angles and unions.
If the new guttering has to join up with an existing gutter,
fit the appropriate ogee
or half-round adaptor.
