Beating off competition from some of the major players in the roofing industry, BLUCHER have been awarded “best product in show 2013” for their stainless steel roof outlet. The BLUCHER roof drain was a big hit with the judging panel for Roofex 2013, who commented that the drain was both innovative and a unique addition to the roofing products market.
BLUCHER roof drains are manufactured from stainless steel and are a real lightweight low cost alternative to traditional plastic and other metallic rainwater outlets. They can also offer some significant advantages over the competition.
Discussing the product on the stand during Roofex, several visitors liked the idea that when doing hot work on the roof they really wouldn’t have to think about the drain itself as there is no painted finish or plastic involved which could burn and so installation would be easier, quicker and safer.
Another benefit picked up on during the show was their light weight which is an important Health & Safety issue when working at height. Other benefits commented on by the experienced roofers who visited the stand were that the drains are available complete with either pre-installed under felt, a simple ready to felt flange, or a bolt down single ply flange.
The BLUCHER Roof outlets are offered with a variety of spigot lengths to cope with different roof thicknesses, and are suitable for all types of roof from cold to warm as well as being suitable for both siphonic and gravity systems.
