Most developers and homeowners think of Ogee guttering as a decorative system, without realising that it also has another big benefit – it has a high capacity and flow rate. Floplast’s Niagara Ogee actually has one of the highest carrying capacity of any domestic gutter available in the UK.
Fitting your Ogee Guttering
The carrying capacity of any gutter system is determined not only by its size, but also by the position of the rainwater downpipes in relation to the gutter and the fall to which it is laid. All gutter systems can actually be fixed level, although we would recommend that a fall of 1:600 is incorporated (this equates to approximately 1 inch in 50 feet, or 2.5cm in 15 metres in metric terms).

Floplast Niagara Ogee Gutter capacity varies between 2.4 litres per second (fixed level with the outlet at one end) and 5.3 litres per second (fixed at 1:350 with a central outlet). We appreciate that these stats can be baffling to all but the scientists and architects, but what this means is that the gutter can hold approximately two and half times as much water as our half round system and more even than our Deep Flow Gutter
- and as such it can cope with the heaviest flow of rainfall from any large or particularly steep pitched domestic roofs.
Corners and Stop Ends
Because Ogee Gutter is not symmetrical, it is important to understand that stop ends are either left or right handed (a right and hand stop end is fitted at the right hand end of a length of gutter when viewed from the front). Similarly, you should remember that gutter angles can be either internal or external (the best way to understand the difference is to look at both product images).
Niagara Ogee also features an optional top hung fascia bracket. This cleverly designed bracket fits over the top of the gutter and locates inside a small lip on the top inside edge of the gutter profile, removing the need for traditional bottom supported fascia brackets – ideal on a conservatory where you would like to see clean, unspoilt lines. These top hung brackets are currently available in Black, White, Brown and Caramel.
