How to Fit Wendland RS32790 and Eurocell CRS-8207 Conservatory Gutter Brackets
We have been asked on a number of occasions for instruction on how to fit the Wendland RS32-790 and Eurocell CRS-8207 conservatory gutter brackets. We are considering creating a diagram to illustrate the process but in the mean time we hope that the following summary provides all the information necessary.
How the twist-fit brackets work
If you take a look at the rear part of the bracket that stands against the conservatory, you will see two lugs. These lugs are what locks the bracket into the ring beam, which runs around the conservatory behind the gutter. It is likely that it’s one such lug that failed on your broken brackets.
You will see that the lug which is on the top edge has one rounded corner and the bottom lug is rounded on the opposing corner. This is to allow the brackets to be twisted into place.
Fitting the brackets
It is advisable to start by removing the gutter. This will allow you the space to work without having to cause undue stress on either the brackets of the gutter.
Consider how many brackets you will need along each length. The centres of each bracket should be spaced no more than 600mm apart and be no further than 200mm from each corner.
To fit, hold the gutter bracket flat, as though it’s resting in your palm. Introduce the back part of the bracket to the ring beam and twist clockwise to the standing position. Be sure that the lugs engage securely with the aluminium slots of the ring beam.
Once the brackets are fitted the gutter can then be offered up to the brackets. The outside edge of the gutter should hook over the front of the brackets and then be pivotted up into the back of the bracket, where it will snap into place.
