Capacity of Half Round Gutters
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 Half Round Gutter capacity varies between 0.92 litres per second (fixed level with the outlet at one end) and 2.6 litres per second (fixed at 1:350 with a central outlet). This is generally more than ample to cope with the flow from a standard pitch, domestic roof. If you have a steeper pitched roof, or perhaps a larger than average surface area, we would recommend that you consider fitting either our Deepflow Gutters or Ogee Gutters.
If your roof is on a barn or commercial building we recommend that you consider using our 170mm Industrial Guttering.
The size of the downpipe is irrelevant in terms of the system capacity – provided that they are kept free of leaves and debris our downpipes will always have a far greater flow capacity than the gutters that they serve.
