Industry leading steel rainwater product manufacturer Lindab are launching a new product into the UK. Lindab Magestic is a guttering system made from steel galvanised with a newly developed strengthened magnesium zinc alloy coating.
Lindab have been manufacturing steel gutters for over 50 years and have never been more excited about advances in material technology. Magestic utilises the same trusted product designs as the established Rainline range but with a much extended life expectancy than the standard galvanised option and with many other benefits.
New technology has allowed a galvanisation alloy to be developed which utilises magnesium to create a stable barrier which protects zinc’s porous structure against corrosion factors.
Salt spray tests demonstrate the highest surface protection of any metallic coated steel. Magestic has more than twenty times the corrosion resistance of hot dipped galvanised steel.
Reduced coastal corrosion:
Magestic corrosion in not influenced by the chlorine content of the environment. Natural exposure tests demonstrate more than three times the corrosion resistance of standard galvanisation in marine environments.
Galvanised coatings migrate to repair red rust on cuts and scratches. Magnesium is more anodic than zinc making the sacrificial properties of Magestic more active than standard galvanisation.
Lower environmental impact:
Galvanised steel is already the most environmentally friendly material used in rainwater systems. Magestic has a reduced impact on zinc resources and less than 25% zinc run off into soils compared to hot-dipped galvanised steel.
Unpainted metal gutters naturally weather, organically adjusting to the installation environment. Magestic settles to an attractive dark grey metallic appearance within 3-5 years after installation.
10 year warranty:
Lindab Magestic products all come with a 10 year warranty which covers up to C4 corrosion environments.
Efficiency improvements in production mean that savings can be passed to you. Magestic is the lowest price Lindab rainwater system.
