Why Choose Clip Fit Beaded Half Round Gutters?

When it comes to selecting the right gutter system for your project, several factors come into play – durability, ease of installation, aesthetic compatibility, and environmental impact. The Clip Fit Beaded Half Round Gutter excels in each of these areas, offering a solution that not only meets but exceeds expectations.


Durability and Strength

Crafted from high-grade aluminium alloy 6063 T6 and LM6, these gutters are built to last. Aluminium, known for its strength and resistance to corrosion, ensures that your gutter system can withstand the elements without succumbing to rust or wear. This resilience translates into a functional life expectancy of over 30 years, making it a sound investment for any property.


Aesthetic Appeal

One of the standout features of the Clip Fit Beaded Half Round Gutter is its smooth lines and clean appearance, which can enhance the exterior of any building. Whether your project is a contemporary new build or a classic refurbishment, the gutter's sleek design complements a wide range of architectural styles. Additionally, the system is available in a variety of RAL standard colours, offering further customisation to match or accent your property's colour scheme.


Ease of Installation

The innovative internal clip fit unions, coupled with the special low viscosity sealant injection system, redefine ease of installation. This Silicone Injection System (SIS) allows for a mess-free, reliable jointing process that can be accomplished with minimal tools and expertise. Unlike traditional systems that may require extensive bracketing and manual sealant application, the Clip Fit system simplifies these steps, saving time and reducing the potential for errors.


Environmental Impact

In today's eco-conscious world, the environmental impact of building materials is more important than ever. The Beaded Half Round Gutters are not only made from 100% recyclable aluminium but also promote sustainable water management practices. By choosing this system, you're making a choice that benefits your project and the planet.


The Clip Fit Beaded Half Round Gutter from Aluminium Rainflow stands as a testament to modern guttering solutions, where efficiency meets aesthetics without compromising on quality or environmental responsibility.

Preparing for Installation

The installation of your Clip Fit Beaded Half Round Gutter begins with proper preparation. This step ensures not just an easier installation process but also guarantees the long-term performance of your gutter system. Here's what you need to know to get ready:


Handling and Storage

The sleek finish of your aluminium gutters requires a gentle touch during handling to prevent any scratches or dents. It's wise to don protective gloves, especially when dealing with mill finish aluminium, safeguarding both your hands and the gutters. Store all gutter components under cover, preferably on racks, to protect against the elements and prevent any potential damage. For painted products stored outside, using a tarpaulin cover is advised to prevent water ingress.


Gather Your Tools and Materials

A successful installation is all about having the right tools at your disposal. Here’s a checklist of what you’ll need:

  • A spirit level or straight edge for accurate alignment.

  • A suitable screwdriver or drill with the correct attachment.

  • A caulking gun for applying sealant.

  • Pencil or chalk for marking positions.

  • String line or laser level for precise line setting.

  • Cutting tools like a hacksaw or electric jigsaw for gutter sections.

  • Tape measure for accurate measurement.

  • A small wrench for adjusting fittings.


Plan Your Gutter Layout

Before you start, decide if your gutter will be installed level or with a slight fall to ensure efficient water flow towards the downspouts. Although personal preference and architectural style might influence your choice, functionality should also be a key consideration.

Now that you're all set, let's dive into the installation process of the Clip Fit Beaded Half Round Gutter. Follow these steps to ensure a smooth installation:


  • Bracket Installation: Decide on the level or slope for your gutter first. Secure brackets at each run's end, taking care to position them correctly for any corners or end caps. Use a string line or laser level to mark where intermediate brackets will go, spacing them no more than 750mm apart for optimal support.

  • Fitting Gutters and Unions: Place outlets strategically above drain points, supported by at least one bracket. Ensure the back of the gutter slides under the roof finish before securing it into the fascia bracket. The innovative clip fit unions then easily snap into place on the gutter's rear face.

  • Sealant Injection Process: With the special low modulus sealant provided, trim the nozzle to fit into the union holes snugly. Carefully inject the sealant until it emerges from the smaller holes, indicating a full and even seal. Clean away any excess for a professional finish.

  • Cutting Gutter Lengths to Size: Measure the distance between installed brackets to determine the length of gutter required. When cutting gutter sections to size, use a hacksaw or an electric jigsaw to ensure a clean, straight cut. It’s crucial to deburr the cut edges to remove any sharp fragments and then apply touch-up paint to protect the exposed aluminium and maintain a consistent finish. Remember to wear protective gloves during this process to safeguard your hands.

Aftercare and Maintenance

Keeping your Clip Fit Beaded Half Round Gutters in top condition is straightforward with regular maintenance. Clear out leaves and debris periodically, check that all fittings are tight, and give painted surfaces a gentle wash annually. This simple care routine will extend the life and performance of your guttering.


By adhering to these guidelines, you can ensure that your Beaded Half Round Gutters will not only enhance the aesthetics of your home but will also provide reliable rainwater management for many years. Whether you're new to DIY or an experienced hand, understanding the process can make all the difference in achieving a successful installation.
