Due to the exceptionally large roof areas of many K-12 schools, the transition of roof runoff from the gutter and downspouts to the below ground stormwater system is of critical importance. Inferior downspout connection products may induce clogging or break under impact. J.R. Hoe cast iron downspout boots feature a flow-efficient, contoured interior, facilitating the conveyance of large volumes of water, unobstructed, through the downspout boot into the drainage system.
The simple, clean design of J.R. Hoe cast iron downspout boots enhance the visual appeal of K-12 school buildings. Customization and school-specific branding options provide a unique visual identity at school entrances, in playgrounds and courtyards. Various finish options are offered including an extensive range of standard powder coat colors.
K-12 school buildings are subject to a tremendous amount of daily foot traffic from hundreds or even thousands of students, which leads to excessive wear and tear and faster aging of building facilities. Constructed from ASTM A48 Class 30B gray iron, J.R. Hoe cast iron downspout boots have what it takes to resist the effects of weathering, moderate impacts and vandalism for the long term.
