Brett Martin Adds Tranquil Chartwell Green to the Cascade Range

BRETT MARTIN Plumbing and Drainage has launched a new colour option to the Cascade Cast Iron Style Rainwater and Soil Systems range.

Chartwell Green has been added to the mix of eight heritage colours, allowing architects to capitalise on this increasingly popular and harmonious colour on windows and doors, on both new build and renovation projects.

Heritage colour

Sought after for its tranquil aesthetic and historical appeal, Chartwell Green will bring a touch of country charm to homes and is a welcomed addition to the Cascade Cast Iron Style Rainwater and Soil System.

Other heritage colours include Classic Black, Anthracite Grey, Oxford Blue, Olive Green, Graphite Grey, Sandstone and Porcelain White – all of which cater to the subtle nuances of local vernacular architecture, as well as reflecting the trend for priming and painting traditional systems. The complete colour range delivers the traditional appearance of cast iron with the convenience of modern plastic materials.

“The popular Chartwell Green colour takes its name from the family home of Sir Winston Churchill who chose this colour for his garden furniture,” said Paul Wadsworth, Specification Manager of Brett Martin Plumbing and Drainage. “There is an increasing demand for this classic and versatile green shade and we are confident architects will find it a strong addition to our range.”

Heritage features

Designed with full consideration to original features, dimensions and detailing, the high quality Cascade pipework, fittings and hoppers create a cast iron look for less. Through a comprehensive range of gutters and downpipes which feature authentic architectural detailing and a choice of Ogee, Bath, Gothic or motiffed hopper designs, water butt and planters as well as a complementary soil system, Cascade can provide heritage style and meet the aesthetic requirements of new build where traditional style is required as well as sympathetic refurbishments and restoration projects.

There are three styles of domestic gutter – 106mm Profiled Ogee, 112mm Half Round and, for larger or steeper roofs, a 115mm Deep Profile – which utilise 68mm round or 65mm square downpipes. For commercial projects there is a high capacity 170mm roundstyle gutter with 105mm round and 4” x 3” rectangular downpipe choice.

Heritage projects

Proven on a variety of projects from new build and domestic refurbishment projects, church and barn conversions, Georgian and Victorian shop frontages, flats and apartments, schools and hotels, the Cascade system has been designed and developed by Brett Martin Plumbing and Drainage, using over 50 years’ experience at the forefront of plastics technology and a unique patented manufacturing process to achieve the authentic cast iron finish.

Cast iron alternative

Offering the appearance of traditional cast iron, with all the benefits of plastic materials, Cascade is a fraction of the price of cast iron or other materials such as aluminium. Real cast iron products are also heavy and time consuming to work with as they need to be cut to size using grinders before being primed, sealed and finished on site. Cascade is lightweight making it quicker, easier and safer to install, helping to offer huge efficiencies in terms of on-site installation costs. This high performance product is also maintenance free and UV stabilised, so it is not vulnerable to rusting or corrosion and offers a ten year guarantee.

The addition of the new Chartwell Green colour option to an already comprehensive range of domestic and industrial gutter and pipework profiles, will allow architects an even greater range of rainwater and drainage options.

When a traditional aesthetic is a prerequisite, the right drainage system can be the difference between design success and failure. With a price tag in line with modern construction, and an appearance that blends the past with the present, Brett Martin’s Cascade rainwater and soil system is the perfect solution for discerning architects and their clients.
