Eaves gutters with bead stiffened fronts and rainwater pipes with seamed joints made of metal sheet

This document specifies requirements for eaves gutters and rainwater down-pipes made from metal sheet. It establishes the general characteristics, designation system, classification, marking and quality requirements for the products.
The document applies to eaves gutters and external rainwater down-pipes that are supported by metal brackets and used to drain away rainwater. The shape and dimensions of a gutter are defined by the quantity of water to be drained away from the roof to the down-pipes and by architectural design requirements.
The document specifies the requirements for gutters and rainwater down-pipes which enable these products to meet all usual service conditions such as catching and draining away rainwater, melted snow or ice water from a building to a drainage system or a sewer outside the building.
Requirements for fixings, supporting construction, flashings or the method of making joints between the different components are not included in this document.
This document does not specify requirements for tolerances on dimensions for eaves gutters handmade on site.

Introduction

This document specifies product requirements, derived from performance requirements established for

various applications and is supported by separate standards for specific and common test methods in the

framework of respective material standards. The performance of a gutter and drainage system made with

these products depends not only on the properties of the products as they are defined by this document. The

design, construction and behaviour of the relevant parts of the building also have an effect on the performance

of the system.
