Assembling D gutters


Gutters are an important fixture on buildings, running along the side of a roof and channelling rainfall to downpipes to protect buildings from water damage. During a recent VET training day with PEER trainer Brittany, our Year 11 Plumbing students were on the hand tools building a 125mm D gutter with a stop-end and a downpipe pop.

Applying basic sheet metal practices, students cut galvanised sheet metal, folded bends, used a sheet metal roller and various hand tools, including groove seaming tools, aviation snips, square nose pliers, rivet guns, and applied a silicone gutter sealant to make sure of no leaks!
