Choosing Lindab® Steel Gutters and Downpipes - Trade Warehouse

Whether you are designing a new build property or renovating a home, the Lindab range of steel gutters and downpipes will add value and, with a range of sizes and profiles available, will perform exceptionally well.

The comprehensive range of colours and products is marketed under the brand name of Lindab Rainline and is distributed by us, Trade, Warehouse, across the UK. This simple 5 step guide helps you choose the optimum style and size of rainwater management components.


Step 1: Choose your shape

The Lindab Rainline range is available in two profiled shapes and five sizes. Shapes (often called profiles) are half-round and rectangular. Steel gutters are exceptionally popular, however the new Lindab rectangular shape steel gutter offers a contemporary appearance, deeper flow, and larger water capacity. Lindab Half-Round Gutters (R) Half-round gutters are available in 4 sizes: 100mm, 125mm, 150mm and 190mm.

Half round gutters 

When ordering, please ensure the product order code for this shape is preceded by the letter 'R.' For example, a 3-metre half-round gutter of size 100mm would have the order code R3100. In the UK, a popular size for half-round gutters is 125mm (for an average-size three-bedroom property). This might be matched with 87mm round downpipes. Lindab Rectangular Gutters (RTRA) Lindab rectangular gutters work well on areas where recessed or hidden gutters are not possible. A wide range of brackets are available to solve almost any fixing problem, even on old and out of shape fascia boards. Again, when ordering, please ensure that the product order code for this shape is preceded by RTRA. For example, a 3-metre rectangular gutter would have the order code RTRA 3140  Lindab Downpipes (SROR) 

For downpipes, the product order code for your size is preceded by the code SROR. For example, a 3-metre downpipe of size 87mm would have the order code SROR 387. Lindab downpipes (drainpipes) come in 4 sizes: 75mm, 87mm, 100mm, and 120mm. 


Step 2: Choose your colour

The Lindab range of galvanised steel gutters comes in a wide variety of RAL colours, including Anthracite Grey (RAL 7016 and RA L7011). When considering the lengths and profiled shapes to use for your project, you’ll notice that there is a Lindab colour or shape for any situation.

Step 3: Calculate your optimum size and compile a component list

In order to select the correct size of gutters and downpipes, it is necessary to understand the quantity of water discharged from the roof area. This is often called the 'flow rate' or 'flow capacity.'  If there are a lot of bends and corners on the gutters or downpipes, then this capacity will be reduced by about 15%. For a detailed description and methods of calculating rainwater flow capacity, view the latest catalogue.  If you already know your size then it’s a simple process to select the necessary components. Please ensure that you have the current Lindab Trade Price List to compile your requirement list. Guidance LindabWe are here to guide you every step of the way - we can guide you through the Rainline sizing process and our expert team is ready to give you the technical advice needed to make a purchase.
