Cast Iron Hoppers

Cast Iron Hoppers


Cast iron hoppers, or rainwater hopper heads, are supplied in various sizes to suit your cast iron downpipe and bracket configuration.

We offer cast iron hoppers in either a transit primed grey finish for site painting to a colour of your choice or a high-quality factory-applied 4-stage wet paint finish, primarily in a black semi-gloss finish, although other colours are available POA.

Hoppers are positioned above drainpipes. They increase water flow during heavy rain and prevent gutters from clogging. Rainwater hoppers also help downpipes divert larger volumes of water.

Cast iron hoppers are common additions to traditional rainwater systems and often feature ornate motifs.

Hopper heads come in various shapes and sizes, so choosing one that fits your needs is important. For example, if you live in a Victorian semi-detached property in the Midlands, you may need smaller cast iron hoppers than someone with a large grade II listed property in a coastal area.

Cast iron rainwater systems can last over one hundred years, only requiring repainting to protect against corrosion.

Why choose a cast iron rainwater hopper?

Hopper heads are an excellent addition to guttering systems, especially in areas with high winds and heavy rains.

Let's look at some of the benefits of choosing traditional cast iron hoppers:


Guaranteed durability

Cast iron is very durable, making it ideal for use in areas with high winds or snowfall, as it will withstand these conditions without any problems whatsoever.

Cast iron doesn't rust and won't deteriorate over time when properly maintained. Apart from occasional repainting, your cast iron rainwater system will last years!


Cast iron is beautiful

Cast iron has a unique appearance that other materials can't replicate.

Cast iron gutters are often painted to match other elements of your property, but even without paint, primed cast iron guttering looks great.

Choosing traditional cast iron adds a classic and elegant look to any property.


Cast iron is recyclable

Cast iron is 100% recyclable. Cast iron products can be melted down to create new cast iron products such as pipes, pans, and ornaments.

Additionally, recycling cast iron helps reduce the amount of waste in landfills and conserves natural resources by reducing the need for new iron ore to be mined.


ARP cast iron hopper heads

Britannia cast iron hopper heads are supplied by UK manufacturer ARP and made using traditional sand-casting methods to ensure that they are in keeping with the requirements for heritage and listed buildings.


How to install cast iron hoppers

Cast iron hopper heads should be secured to the wall through either pre-made holes or drilled on-site and fixed back using plastic wall plugs and M5x50mm stainless steel screws (dependent on the substrate).

Full fitting instructions are supplied with every delivery.
