Why do I Need a Rainwater Calculation
Regulations require that rainwater is drained from a roof within a certain time to ensure that the roof does not contain more water than the structure can withstand.
The requirements differ depending on the location of the building, the roof pitch and the overall roof area.
It would be easy with roof drainage outlets to either under specify – which could damage to the building – or over-specify - using unnecessary installation time and money.
In order to prevent damage to the building from rainwater, Fixfast can provide you with a rainwater calculation.
Fixfast roof outlets have all been tested for their flow rates and the technical department can carry out rainwater flow rate calculations that will provide you with a scheme in accordance with the UK design standard BS EN 12056 : 3-2000.
