Barnsley Football Club

Barnsley Football Club

OTM Developments

Barnsley Football Club had been experiencing leaks over seats in the main stand to the dismay of football fans for over 5 years.

This problem had been worsening and the club had tried numerous other treatments including bolting steel plates to the original gutter. Oliver Masters, the Managing Director of OTM Developments recommended the installation of the Plygene Gutterline system as he knew it would guarantee permanent leak prevention.

He commented “There was nothing more suitable for gutter refurbishment than the Sharmans Plygene Gutterline System. The gutter needed to be refurbished on the east stand at Barnsley Football Club which is quite open to the elements. It stands 25 metres from the ground with no shelter. Plygene Gutterline is the perfect system for this scenario because it is highly durable and weathertight.”

Unlike competitors’ general roofing products, Plygene Gutterline is the only BBA approved gutter lining system specifically engineered to restore and preserve gutter performance for industrial and commercial buildings. It has obtained a Euro-classification ‘E’ to the harmonised European standard EN 13501-1 and provides a 25 year guaranteed, BBA approved, “gutter within a gutter” system. Plygene Gutterline offers a bespoke solution with minimal building disruption and is an effective alternative to full gutter replacement. Through ongoing product development, the system has been designed to meet the challenges of all commercial gutter environments, whatever their configuration and complexity.

It is the only gutter refurbishment system that will provide complete peace of mind for specifiers and contractors who want a proven system specifically designed for the gutter environment.

Billy Heffernan, Technical Services Manager for Sharmans said:

“This project demonstrates why it is critical to refurbish gutters with systems that are designed specifically for the gutter. Having tried and failed with many other products on the market, Barnsley Football Club needed a permanent solution for the 23,000 people who simply wanted to remain dry watching the football on match day!”
