Gutters and roof drainage made of HFX stainless steel
Durable, practically maintenance-free and simply beautiful
Roof drainage is a visible part of a house, it should be a harmonious complement to the façade and roof. It is also a crucial prerequisite for preserving the building fabric and protecting it from damage. The Roofinox R.SYS complete system for roof drainage combines function and aesthetics – we guarantee this with our 60-year warranty.

R.SYS in detail
Our HFX stainless steel complete system for roof drainage is the first stainless steel complete system for roof drainage. With more than 250 articles, it offers a comprehensive and coordinated range to drain all types of connections and roofs without any worries.
The traditional variant of the gutter is the pre-hung gutter, which is produced in a semi-circular and square box shape. The classic and predominant gutter shape is the semi-circular gutter and it has lost none of its relevance to this day. Box gutters are increasingly being used for modern designs and simple styling. The proven and effective functionality of these gutters, in combination with a comprehensive range of accessories, makes them an all-rounder in roof drainage.
As a visible component of the roof and façade, a coordinated and consistent appearance is the decisive prerequisite for ensuring the aesthetics and an appealing overall impression of the house. The wide range of accessories from a single source ensures that the roof drainage system will function perfectly for decades.
Internal gutters are often used when it is particularly important that the gutter is not visible from the ground. This means that the aesthetic aspect of the gutter itself recedes into the background, as the overall appearance is not influenced or emphasised by this roof drainage system. However, the demand for tightness and durability of this construction increases significantly. This is because leaks or repairs become particularly complex and expensive with internal gutters as a roof-integrated construction. The low temperature-related expansion of HFX stainless steel enables particularly long gutters without expansion compensation.
As a rule, these gutters are made as customised flashings and completed with box gutter accessories or the rainwater is drained in the insulation level or inside the building. The brazed gutters made of HFX stainless steel keep tight for decades without significant maintenance.
Every citizen uses an average of 130 litres of drinking water every day. Most of this is for purposes that would not require drinking water, such as watering the garden or flushing the toilet. The use of rainwater reduces this waste. HFX stainless steel from ROOFINOX is the perfect material to use rainwater, because HFX stainless steel:
- is free from wash-off and ion erosion
- does not contain plasticisers from paints and coatings
- is food safe and food-safe
- is a natural material
- is not harmful to humans or the environment
Material compatibility and combinability
ROOFINOX roof drainage is also worry-free when it comes to interaction with other materials. The corrosion resistance of stainless steel naturally also works in this respect. Because whether bitumen, foil roof, green roof, slate, wood (also with low ph-value such as larch, oak, chestnut, cedar, Douglas fir), other metals, stone or glass – no problem! HFX stainless steel from ROOFINOX makes it worry-free.
Service and maintenance
All parts of the R.SYS complete system are made of HFX stainless steel, the strongest and most durable metal for roofs and facades. This rules out rusting, fading or pitting and makes the HFX stainless steel rain gutter the most durable roof drainage system. This makes the roof drainage system low-maintenance, but please do not forget to clear the drain sockets from time to time to prevent blockages.
Welded and deep-drawn version
Robustness and aesthetics do not have to be mutually exclusive. With ROOFINOX, this means high-quality workmanship and a perfectly coordinated system. This makes installation easier, reduces costs and extends the service life. Rebates are not opened or stretched by freezing water and the welded seam is the strongest connection that also allows for a discreet appearance. Because soldering, rebating, or multi-part components can look clunky, 3D forming of moulded parts allows the familiar elegance of R.SYS system components. Multi-part or soldered components are only used where it is technically impossible to do otherwise. This is another expression of our focus on appearance and durability.
HFX stainless steel has the lowest expansion of the stainless construction metals. This means less ripple, no noise (cracking or crackling) and less stress on the structure. The low expansion also allows for longer coulters (over 30 m), gutters and fascias in one piece.
Soldering (soft soldering) is a quick, reliable and simple method of making watertight and durable joints. All our roof drainage products can be soldered, allowing roof drainage without a shelf life. Alternatively, the connection can also be made using adhesive technology, for which we recommend our specially developed gutter adhesive.
Metal wash-off – ion removal and erosion.
ROOFINOX roof drainage is also the best choice from an ecological point of view. Durability, CO2 footprint and recycling clearly speak for themselves. Another decisive factor for roof drainage is that HFX stainless steel does not release any harmful metal, microplastics, plasticisers or nanoparticles, as happens with conventional materials due to continuous washing out of the gutters and pipes. This is because these pollutants end up in groundwater and wastewater and cause long-term damage to our soils and water supplies. By using a HFX stainless steel gutter, you enable the use of rainwater without hesitation and protect our water reserves.
Why is Roofinox’s brush-rolled HFX stainless steel the ideal material for roof drainage?
With the complete R.SYS system from Roofinox, you have a comprehensive and coordinated drainage system made of brush-rolled HFX stainless steel from a single source. Unsurpassed durability, virtually no maintenance, resistance to algae and roots, and an exceptionally beautiful appearance make Roofinox R.SYS the perfect complement to roofs and facades.
How does a well-planned drainage system permanently protect the building from water damage?
Roofinox HFX stainless steel gutters and pipes withstand any storm, are completely rust-free and are also resistant to algae and roots. They are less susceptible to damage and dents. Bitumen and foils can perforate a conventional drainage system in just a few years. This cannot happen with Roofinox R.SYS. HFX stainless steel convinces with the lowest expansion and thus the lowest stress on the overall construction. Our gutters make your property safe and comfortable all year round. For decades. For generations.
