Industrial gutters are designed to handle large volumes of water and are typically found on large commercial or industrial buildings. In South Africa, industrial gutters come in various sizes, depending on the building’s size and the expected volume of water that needs to be channeled away from the structure.
Factors that Affect Industrial Gutter Sizes:
Roof Size: A larger roof will need larger gutters to handle the expected water volume.
Rainfall: Areas with high rainfall will require larger gutters to handle the expected water volume.
Building Use: For example, a factory with large machines and equipment will require larger gutters to handle the water runoff from the roof.
Standard Industrial Gutter Sizes in South Africa
- 125mm – Suitable for small to medium-sized industrial buildings and can handle moderate water volumes.
- 150mm – Suitable for larger industrial buildings and can handle higher water volumes than 125mm gutters. 200mm – Designed for large industrial buildings and can handle significant water volumes.
- 250mm – Are the largest available and are suitable for the largest industrial buildings that require the highest water volume capacity.
