A typical athletic building endures frequent light to medium impacts over time from groundskeeping vehicles, maintenance activities and the hundreds or even thousands of athletes and fans that use the facility each year. While unprotected downspouts often become smashed or crumpled in this environment, even moderate downspout protection in the form of light gauge steel boots and covers may be dented, bent or dislodged. The strength of cast iron downspout boots is unrivaled in resisting repeated impacts of the type commonly experienced in athletic facilities.
In comparison to traditional wet paint, powder coating is an environmentally friendly, higher quality finish option. J.R. Hoe cast iron downspout boots are offered with a standard color selection of 185 unique colors to meet the design requirements of virtually any project. With a 2-coat proprietary powder coating process including a 5 stage prewash cycle, J.R. Hoe powder coated downspout boots offer a high quality, wear-resistant and attractive finish.
