Round guttering elbows
Discovering the round guttering elbows: a short guide
The vast sector of plumbing and construction components manufactures and launches a large number of items in the market, such as round guttering elbows, collars, skylights and flashing units. Despite that, only the best products are long-lasting, easy to use and completely made in Italy.

In particular, the round guttering elbows are essential in connecting pipes and changing the direction of water flows. The union point is indeed a critical point as it is subject to leakage and detachments. Only the best quality guttering elbows keep a high standard and performance and perfectly fit the pipe.
A wide range of raw materials and items able to meet these needs is available on the market. There are 3 main types of guttering round elbows distributed in Italy: circular shape elbows with central seam, circular elbows with side seams and rectangular elbows with a central crimp.
The central crimp elbows are usually called “traditional elbows” but recently new guttering elbows have been available and fitted with the innovative lateral crimp. This new model of crimp makes the guttering elbows able to facilitate the water flow and prevent the accumulation of pressure in the joints and consequently the risk of leakage.
Furthermore, the lateral crimp system gives the round guttering elbows a more pleasant and smooth aspect. This type of guttering elbows is produced automatically; therefore, costs are reduced.
