The Halls Rainsaver movable gutter kit will fit the vast majority of the sheds and similar buildings found in typical gardens and allotments. By attaching to the edge of the roof line, the patented brackets automatically aligns the gutter for collection of rainwater – there’s no need to build extra material onto your shed because normal brackets won’t reach the roof edge. Simply tighten the clamps, fine tune the position of the gutter and you’re all set for rainwater harvesting!
It fits longer sheds too – ok the basic 6ft kit won’t go right to the edges but thats one reason why the Rainsaver is so versatile – you can still save over 400 gallons of water on average per year (800 gallons or more on larger 12ft sheds due to the greater roof area to the apex) by repositioning the gutter to fill multiple butts next to one another without need for water butt links (or just moving the flexible pipe if that’s your desire!)
Whilst the original intention of the Rainsaver was a single kit that could be moved, we also sell 8, 10, 12 ft Shed Gutter Kits and additional mini guttering components for our customers if the aim is to run guttering along a full length.
To help understand the mechanism we’ve drawn some rough side and face-on views of the clamp mounted to various shed types. The gutter is not shown but you can see where it slides in lengthways (allows rotation within the bracket so it can be kept horizontal and the downpipe to drop straight down or positioned according to requirements).
The three main types of shed roof styles are (the product isn’t limited just to shed roofs either – almost any sloping surface will work!):
Roof overhang without batten (side on and face-on perspective):
Roof overhang with batten (side on and face-on perspective):
Roof overhang with batten close to wall (side on and face-on perspective):
As you can see the design of the patented Hall’s Rainsaver bracket cleverly allows adjustment of both thickness and angle of roof, whilst also allowing the gutter to rotate and maintain an optimal position for collecting the water dripping off the edge of the roof!
The bracket will fit sheds and outbuilding roofs up to a maximum clamping depth of 76mm (3″). The minimum depth is 8mm (but can always be packed out if needed to clamp down to thinner materials).
