Supporting the Contractor
Working with you the contractor
The Plygene® Gutterline system is purpose engineered to minimise site disruption, speed up installation, eradicate costly call backs and stop leaks for good.
Supplied on rolls, the liner is seamless and non-bonded in design to accommodate thermal movement caused by the freeze-thaw effect and eliminate leaks typically caused by joint movement and cracking within traditionally bonded systems.
Custom moulded, vacuum formed, gravity outlets, stop ends, corners and T-junctions are engineered to provide a complete “gutter within a gutter” and the system also includes bespoke moulded syphonic outlet kits for all common systems.
Specified fixings packs are supplied as an integral part of the system for all gutter substrate types whether steel, other metal, concrete, asbestos or timber.
Our national network of Technical Services Managers and Technical Support Centre provides full support on all site activity from initial survey through to installation and guarantee request.
We provide a suite of sales support tools including samples, specifications, marketing materials and training programmes.
Our dedicated support teams work in design partnership with you and our manufacturing operation provides rapid support and response to your varying programme needs.
We provide full training support at the Sharmans Training Centre.
The contractor training programme provides extensive installer training on all aspects of the system, from initial site survey requirements, to gutter preparation, roll out and fixing of the liner, through to installation of both the drainage outlets and network components. Hands-on practical training is blended with traditional and digital support materials including:
- Introduction to Sharmans, its full support services and the Plygene Gutterline system
- Practical demonstrations and fixing/hot air welding sessions using bespoke designed training rigs
- A comprehensive system guide and the Golden Rules for installation
- Online video installation footage of all key system components
- Online technical data sheets and specified fixing types for all gutter substrate materials
- System audit, certification and guarantee authorisation.
Successful completion of the course leads to the award of Trained Contractor status as a Sharman’s registered contractor.
