New Water Drainage Systems From Petersen Enhance Roof Performance, Aesthetics

Elk Grove Village, IL - The design of PAC-CLAD PAC-Tite Water Drainage Systems from Petersen - which include gutters, downspouts and scuppers - improves performance while complementing a building’s aesthetic qualities. Custom engineering such as the heavy aluminum gutter strap design also promotes ease of installation and helps the drainage systems withstand harsh environments. Petersen’s PAC-Tite Water Drainage Systems line includes gutters that are not only Factory Mutual-approved, but ANSI/SPRI GT-1 compliant as well.


PAC-Tite Gold Gutters offer easy installation, outstanding performance and an attractive appearance. The products include a 2-in. wide external wind strap every 6 feet and gutter hangers every 24 in. on center to comply with the ANSI/SPRI GT-1 Standard. The unique, heavy aluminum gutter hanger is designed to eliminate the need for drilling and riveting and allows for full thermal movement of the gutter. Offered with an optional roof flange or slotted drain bars for ballast retention, PAC-Tite Gold Gutters offer maximum roof drainage and ease of installation in a one-of-a-kind edge metal solution. Benefits include:

• Easy installation and decreased labor costs

• Prefabricated miters and accessories to eliminate the need for field fabrication

• Variety of color, sizes and metal gauges

• ANSI/SPRI GT-1 tested to comply with the standard for gutter systems

• FM-approved gutters for wind uplift protection

The PAC-Tite Industrial Downspout is available in a variety of standard sizes, or it can be fabricated to meet specific job requirements. The open-face design makes clearing out debris an easy task. Downspouts are manufactured with simple connection configurations and include three attachment straps per 12-foot section, which enables fast and easy installation.

The PAC-Tite Water Drainage Systems line includes a variety of custom-designed scuppers and collector boxes that meet performance requirements that architects and contractors require. Their unique design provides maximum security and performance to protect against leaks and is a decorative and functional means of water control.

All hangers are included and will arrive to the job site with the water drainage product. Factory-fabricated accessories provide a cleaner, more aesthetically pleasing appearance. This eliminates the need for field fabrication, providing time and labor savings.
