Increased Water-Carrying Capacity

A comparison of CG systems 6 inch and 5 inch copper gutters and the Berger style 6 inch

We compared our CG Systems copper gutters to the typical “Berger style” gutters to measure the true difference between the two. We took 1-foot sections of 5-inch and 6-inch CG Systems European style half round gutters with 2 soldered end caps and a 1-foot section of Berger styler half round gutter with 2 soldered end caps and filled them all to capacity. The results speak for themselves:

  • Our CG 6-inch half round gutter held 117.4 fl. oz
  • Our CG 5-inch half round gutter held 74.6 fl. oz
  • The Berger 6 inch half round gutter held 74.6 fl. oz

The CG Systems 6-inch half round gutter provided 57% more water-carrying capacity than the Berger style equivalent, and our 5-inch half round gutter matched their 6-inch.

Get More Total Copper

Our CG Systems copper gutters also contain more total copper for a sturdier overall design and greater durability. Once again we compared our gutters to the Berger style by taking a 2-foot section of our 6-inch and 5-inch CG Systems half round copper gutters with 1 hanger, and measuring against a 2-foot section of the 6-inch Berger half round copper gutter.

A comparison of the CG Systems half round gutters with the Berger style in regards to total copper (weight)

 

  • Our CG 6-inch half round gutter withone hanger weighed 3.0313 lbs with a coil width of 13.1 inches
  • Our CG 5-inch half round gutter with one hanger weighed 2.59 lbs with a coil width of 11.1 inches
  • The Berger 6-inch half round gutter with one hanger weighed 2.2727 lbs with a coil width of 11.5 inches

 

Ultimately, these comparisons mean that when comparing to the Berger style 6-inch half round gutter for an average-sized gutter installation (200 feet), you get 33% more total copper and 57% more water-carrying capacity by installing the CG Systems 6-inch, and 14% more copper and equivalent water-carrying capacity by installing the CG Systems 5-inch.
