Gary Power has been appointed chairman of the MGMA. He brings a wealth of experience to the role coming from his position as managing director at Guttercrest Limited, a leading manufacturer of standard and bespoke aluminium rainwater goods.
The Guttercrest Group more than triples manufacturing space following investment in a new 200,000 sq. ft site designed to house more state-of-the-art equipment, storage and to ‘future proof’ the predicted further growth of the business.
Climate change is one of the key drivers for improving roof drainage and water management; the latest article from MGMA explains the importance of roof drainage calculation.
ARP’s Sentinel range of guttering now includes a new jointing system for its half-round snap-fit guttering and an upgrading of all associated components.
MGMA has updated its guidance on membrane gutters to include factory assembled insulated gutters and composite insulated gutter applications
Correct rainfall intensity is crucial to carrying out an effective and safe design for the roof drainage components on a building. See MGMA’s new document ‘Guidance on selecting the correct rainfall intensity’
The Metal Gutter Manufacturers Association was formed in 1994 to represent the leading manufacturers of metal gutters. Membership of MGMA is open to all companies who manufacture and market metal gutters, downpipes and their associated fittings. In addition, membership is open to those companies who provide a range of professional support services to the metal rainwater systems industry.
The Association seeks to foster and take part in research and all forms of technical development in relation to metal gutters and to encourage the best methods of their production and use with the construction and allied industries.
The Association has produced a Membership Charter to reflect the current concerns of the industry with particular reference to technical ethos, health and safety and environmental issues. In accordance with the Charter, the MGMA will ensure that its members undertake all work in accordance with relevant health and safety legislation and have a health and safety policy which they uphold both in principle and practice.
In addition, members are required to have due regard for environmental issues during procurement, delivery (including installation implementation) and waste disposal and members are committed to minimising adverse environmental impact in the provision of their products and/or services.
The MGMA is the only organisation which represents the major manufacturers and is, therefore, a valuable source of
information and advice on all matters relating to metal gutters.
