Damaged and broken downspouts not only result in increased facilities maintenance costs, they contribute to a run-down and unsightly building appearance. Durable, impact resistant cast iron downspout boots ensure that the visual appeal of the building will not be compromised by physically damaged downspouts. Whether intended as a noticeable architectural feature or a purely functional drainage component that blends into the building exterior, cast iron downspout boots bring long-lasting architectural value to commercial and retail environments.
J.R. Hoe offers pedestrian-friendly trench drains that are designed for downspout boot connections, allowing downspout flow to be diverted straight to the parking lot, roadway or biofiltration area. Offered in various styles and sizes, all decorative grate options feature openings that are ADA compliant when properly installed. Utilizing sidewalk drains in retail development design can reduce project costs by eliminating underground piping systems and increasing the possibilities for incorporating green infrastructure and low impact development.
