Copper, Stainless and Zinc Guttering
UK's only manufacturer!
We started importing copper guttering from Italy in the early 90's. Due to increased demand, the need for an easier fixing method and improved quality, we started producing our own natural finish Copper Guttering in Botley near Southampton, Hampshire, under the Trade Mark of 'Coppa Gutta' in July 2002, making us the only UK manufacturer of copper rainwater systems. Nearly 20 years later and we are still the only UK manufacturer and the leading UK distributor for Copper Guttering. We are proud of the fact that our products are now shipped all over the world.
In 2015 we introduced our own ranges of Natural Zinc Guttering and 304 grade Stainless Steel Guttering systems for those after a different finish and colour to that of copper. Both of these materials offer material life expectancies far greater than those of Cast Iron Guttering, Aluminium Guttering, Steel Guttering and Plastic Guttering and as with our Copper Guttering there is no painting required.

A naturally beautiful material that looks elegant against virtually any building material.
Supplied in a natural finish our Copper Guttering components will naturally age in a couple of months through various shades of brown eventually forming a verdigris patina.
A hard durable material with a natural unfinished light metallic grey surface gives this gutter an ultra modern appeal.
Our Stainless Steel guttering systems are very hard wearing and virtually maintenance free.
Like our Copper guttering our Zinc gutters suit a multitude of building fabrics.
Supplied in its natural light silver form, Zinc will age over the coming months darkening to a beautiful graphite grey colour.
THE BRITISH MANUFACTURED GREEN ALTERNATIVES!
Our Copper, Stainless Steel and Zinc guttering systems are the most eco-friendly guttering materials available.
Approximately 60% of the material content used in the production of our copper guttering is from recycled copper.
When our Copper and Zinc gutters are exposed to the elements, they protect themselves by developing a patina over time, ensuring durability and resistance to corrosion in virtually any atmosphere.
Unlike other metal guttering copper guttering works as a natural biocide purifying the water to stop the build up of algae, making it the perfect partner for your rainwater harvesting system.
OTHER SERVICES AND PRODUCTS WE OFFER
Ridges and Flashings
In addition to our standard Copper guttering product ranges and decorative items we also produce Copper ridges and flashings to help customers add that extra finishing touch and help prevent moss.
Through our parent company Good Directions we also produce the UK's largest range of copper finials, as well as make bespoke designs to order.
SEGMENTED CURVED GUTTER SECTIONS
Our segmented radius gutter sections add that finishing touch to any curved property.
These beautiful eye catching gutters are manufactured by mitre cutting smaller sections of gutter, which are then tig welded or soldered together in lengths up to 2.4m long.
To produce segmented curved guttering we can work directly from 'as built drawings' or from a card or timber template that you've taken directly from the building.
Prices start from only £92 + VAT per meter for radius gutters and £138 + VAT per meter for irregular curves. Please state whether your gutter is a radius or made up of irregular curves at the time of ordering as this will affect the cost and production time required.
IT'S NOT ALWAYS STRAIGHT FORWARD WHEN IT COMES TO PRODUCING OUR GUTTER PROFILES!
THE LINK BETWEEN FUNCTIONAL AND DECORATIVE.....
To add real impact to any garden, our copper rain chains and cups are a must.
Although they are more decorative than functional, most of the water from the outlet will still make it to the ground, but they are best suited for use with planters, water butts, water features and ponds.
The chains and cups are made in 1m lengths but sold in packs to create a 2.5m drop.
On installation the chains and cups will need to be suspended from your gutter, be it copper or not, by simply hanging them from a rod laid within the gutter spanning the outlet. The copper rain chains and cups will also require tethering at the bottom to stop them from swinging around but how this is done will depend on the application.
