As rainfall intensity and frequency continues to rise each year, it is vital that rainwater drainage systems have the capacity to protect a building and its contents. 

The Deepstyle 170 high performance rainwater system from Brett Martin Plumbing & Drainage combines increased drainage capacity with design flexibility to provide reliable, effective and efficient drainage for large commercial, industrial, agricultural and residential roofs.

Specifically developed with a super-sized 170mm profile to accommodate the increased volumes of rainwater on large roof areas with a capacity of 11.54 litres per second1, the Deepstyle 170 system requires fewer discharge points reducing the number of downpipes to provide both material and installation savings. Designed with the installer in mind, the system also features new and innovative factory fitted CLIP & SEAL technology on all fittings to ease installation and provide exceptional long-term sealing reliability.

A unique addition to Deepstyle 170, the CLIP & SEAL fully integrates with the fitting so that the specially designed captive seal is held securely within the fitting whilst the clip locks the seal firmly in place. When fitting the gutter, the CLIP provides just enough flex to allow the gutter to locate within the fitting, whilst a reassuring click locks the gutter securely into position compressing the seal for superior sealing.

Deepstyle 170 integrates seamlessly with Brett Martin’s 110mm Industrial Downpipe System to complete the company’s high capacity offering. Comprising 110mm plain ended or single socket downpipe options, with high quality PVCu fittings, including bends, branches, access pipes and clips, the system retains the adaptability essential in planning an industrial rainwater scheme.

“Combining an efficient installation with exceptional reliability and increased capacity, Deepstyle 170 perfectly complements our existing range of rainwater systems,” said Hayley Lowry, Brett Martin Marketing Manager. “With continued investment in product research and development, our range satisfies every variety of roof drainage from the smallest domestic property to much larger agricultural and commercial buildings.”

Manufactured in the UK at Brett Martin’s own quality assured BS EN ISO 9001:2008 factories, the Deepstyle 170 system is a robust, hard-wearing solution. Tested to EN 1462 Load Class H to withstand heavy duty snow loading, the high gloss PVC system is also proven to retain its stunning aesthetic with UV protection providing long term colour stability – backed by a 10 year colour warranty.

With a reputation for quality and reliability developed over more than 50 years in the industry, Deepstyle 170 is the latest addition to Brett Martin’s rainwater portfolio which includes 106mm Prostyle, 112mm Roundstyle, 114mm Squarestyle, 115mm Deepstyle and 160mm High Capacity in addition to the innovative and highly acclaimed Cascade range of cast iron effect guttering and downpipe profiles. A new Anthracite Grey colour option is also now available across the complete Cascade Cast Iron Style range and in the Prostyle 106mm and Deepstyle 115mm Gutter and Downpipe Systems in the standard rainwater range.
