All You Need To Know About Commercial Box Gutter Systems
Installing and maintaining the right rain gutter is important to any commercial business, and different types of gutter work better for different types of properties. One of the most popular choices over the years has been the traditional commercial box gutter.
Commercial box gutter can be used on many types of buildings. Large box gutter systems are often seen on buildings that have flat roofs and parapet walls.
This system gets its name from its shape and placement on the edge of the roof which runs around the perimeter. Because of their esthetic value, box gutter systems are the go-to solution when renovating historic establishments or constructing large buildings for big businesses. Their shape and size allow them to effectively transport large amounts of water.
Specifics of Box Gutter Systems
Galvalume® and aluminum are the most common materials used to manufacture box gutter systems. Other available materials are copper, stainless steel, Acrylume®, and HDG-90.
Box Gutter Systems vary in size depending on the building’s needs. The ability of box gutters to carry large amounts of water is one of the primary reasons you see them on the outside of big company buildings. Requirements for gutter size are based on the total area of the roof, and rainfall averages in the location of the building.
Box Gutter Systems can be quite versatile with its profile. DMI offers six standard SMACNA profiles as well as the option for a custom profile in lengths up to 32’. We also offer our Continuous Gutter in lengths up to 52’. These long runs of gutter can help reduce installation costs by reducing the number of seams needed with longer runs.

Our Warranties are Second to None
DMI total system warranties protect all aspects of your metal envelope system, whether that be the watertightness of the roof or siding, the Galvalume ® steel, or the durable PVDF KYNAR® finish. When looking at warranties for your system, it is important to note that not all warranties are created equal. DMI warranties ensure the watertightness of all flashing conditions, trims, curbs, valleys, and penetrations. Building owners are protected with a total system warranty - “from the deck up” when using DMI insulation, fasteners, and underlayment. Our warranties are backed-up by a full-service Engineering Department, generating project specific shop drawings. Quality control is monitored by a minimum of two on-site inspections by our Field Technical Inspectors. DMI Total System Warranties give building owners and design professionals confidence that they are receiving the highest quality and most complete warranty available in the industry.
