European style half round copper rain gutters manufactured by World Gutter Systems have a deeper profile than that of other manufacturers. We use a wider copper coil (girth) to fabricate our rain gutters. Our 4” European half round copper rain gutter has as much copper as a standard 5” half round. Our 5” copper gutter has as much copper and moves as much water as a standard 6” half round gutter, and so on. The shape of this rain gutter allows for optimal water flow, leaving behind fewer leaves and debris. The back lip prevents overflow and locks gutter into place when overlapping one section into another.
You'll notice that the female bell end of the copper downspout is quite pronounced on that offered by other suppliers and easily visible from a distance. Our female end has a gentle flair that is far less noticeable, resulting in a much cleaner looking installation. Additionally, each piece of copper downspout is shipped inside it’s own plastic sleeve to protect against scratches and fingerprints. Our seamless copper elbows have an invisible and very strong weld where the edges are butted up against one another and are then precisely welded. Not only is the fit of our elbows the best in the industry, but our very popular 72 Degree elbow is uniquely designed so that the male end will fit tightly into a piece of “cut” downspout as well as fitting beautifully into the female end of a length of downspout or of another elbow.
Our proprietary heavy-duty copper downspout brackets are the strongest and most versatile on the market. These also were designed by, produced for and are marketed solely by us. The mounting screw is attached to the bracket using a hidden nut. Both the nut and the screw are removable, thus the same bracket can be used for either stand-off mounting or true flush mounting of the downspout. Only we have this feature. Others have a large exposed nut, which does not allow true flush mounting.
Our copper gutter hangers are the strongest solid copper half round gutter hangers in the world. These are of our own design and produced in Italy using a die we had made to our custom specifications. The hangers produced by this machine are solely for our use.
We designed our European style copper gutter hangers with a deeper structural rib that travels along the length of the hanger. This deeper rib results in our hangers being far stronger than any others on the market, as well as more attractive. Also, the holes for the mounting screws are recessed so that the top of the head of the screw sits flush with the hanger. The result is that a roof sits flatter upon our roof mount hanger and there is no pressure exerted by the screw against the gutter when using our fascia mount hanger. No other company has this feature.
Our Copper Rain Chains are sold in several styles including round cup Rain Chains, fluted cup Rain Chains, square cup Rain Chains, link style Rain Chains, and Lily style Rain Chains. Rain Chains are sold in copper as a stock item, however custom Rain Chains in different metals are available. Rain Chain extension pieces are also sold when requiring lengths exceeding 10 feet.
