Tough enough for Vortique to offer a 50 year durability warranty on every piece.

Commercial Benefits

Vortique exceeds European and New Zealand Building Codes for flow rates.

Vortique’s patented profile enables true siphonic flow which results in significantly better flow rates than traditional downpipes. Vortique exceeds European and New Zealand Building Code requirements. Unlike traditional downpipes which rely on a series of joiners which disrupt flow, Vortique is seamless and performs at a minimum of 140% of traditional downpipes at any drop length. This percentage increases with each extra joiner inserted in traditional products.

This means that for each square metre of roof Vortique requires 40% fewer downpipes.

Note: With traditional downpipes systems every additional joiner reduces effective flow by a further 15% (approximately). Therefore more traditional downpipes are required per square metre of roof area in order to meet European requirements.
