Polypipe, the UK’s leading manufacturer of above and below ground drainage, plastic plumbing and underfloor heating systems, has seen its Elegance rainwater system selected for use in a highly sought after residential project in the heart of Dartmoor National Park.

Situated within Dartmoor National Park, special consideration was required to ensure the exterior of the buildings and products selected, were aesthetically sensitive to the local area – which contains properties dating back to the early 19th Century.

With the look of a traditional cast iron system and all of the product and installation benefits of PVC-U, Polypipe’s stylish Elegance Rainwater System provided the ideal drainage solution. In this project the Elegance Ogee profile with in-built notches was specified, which ensures a secure fit for retaining clips and prevents guttering becoming dislodged due to heat expansion.

David Selleck, Director at Selleck Nicholls Homes, said: “Developing a new site within a conservation area can have its complications, particularly when using modern building products, but with Elegance we were able to achieve a best of both solution combining aesthetics and performance, which will require minimal maintenance for homeowners in the years to come”.

John Floyd, Regional Development Manager for Polypipe Building Products, added: “Elegance’s distinctive design style proved the perfect complement to the Stoneycliffe Place development and we were delighted to work with the Selleck Nicholls team on this project. In addition to looking good, the Elegance range is easy to store, handle and install and is suitable for all residential new build and renovation projects.”
