RHEINZINK offers architectural grade zinc gutter systems in half-round or box shapes, and a choice of more 300 parts and accessories. These systems are adaptable to almost any roof configuration and are compatible with most roofing materials, including asphalt shingle, slate and zinc roofing applications. RHEINZINK Gutter Systems support roof drainage on new construction and renovation applications for both residential and commercial building projects.
Used in Europe for centuries, zinc gutters deliver performance and an appearance that complements both traditional and contemporary designs. RHEINZINK Gutter Systems are offered in prePATINA blue-gray and graphite-gray as standard, and CLASSIC bright-rolled on special request. Patination, the formation of a natural protective layer, ensures that RHEINZINK Gutter Systems will remain functional for decades – with little-to-no need for maintenance.
Zinc’s natural metallic properties contribute to RHEINZINK products’ performance and a potential lifespan of 30 years or more. At the end of its useful life on the building’s exterior, it remains 100 percent recyclable. RHEINZINK prePATINA gutters and downspouts are Cradle to Cradle Certified Bronze. Products with these material health certificates support building teams pursuing sustainable and wellness project goals, such as the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED v4 rating systems.
Contributing to effective water management and installation ease, RHEINZINK’s pre-fabricated, half-round gutters are available in 5-, 6- or 7.5-inch diameters, 9.84- and 19.68-foot lengths, and heavy-gauge 0.7- and 0.8-millimeter thicknesses. RHEINZINK’s portfolio of patented water diversion and collection parts and accessories also includes leaf guards and collectors, expansion joints, end caps, brackets, elbows, hangars, adapters, wedges, downspouts and more.
