We have been asked on a number of occassions for instruction on how to fit the Wendland RS32-790 conservatory gutter brackets. We are considering creating a diagram to illustrate the process but in the mean time we hope that the following summary provides all the information neccessary.
Fitting Wendland RS32790 Gutter Brackets
How the twist-fit brackets work
If you take a look at the rear part of the bracket that stands against the conservatory, you will see two lugs. These lugs are what locks the bracket into the ring beam, which runs around the conservatory behind the gutter. It is likely that it’s one such lug that failed on your broken brackets.
You will see that the lug which is on the top edge has one rounded corner and the bottom lug is rounded on the opposing corner. This is to allow the brackets to be twisted into place.
Fitting the brackets
It is advisable to start by removing the gutter. This will allow you the space to work without having to cause undue stress on either the brackets of the gutter.
Consider how many brackets you will need along each length. The centres of each bracket should be spaced no more than 600mm apart and be no further than 200mm from each corner.
To fit, hold the gutter bracket flat, as though it’s resting in your palm. Introduce the back part of the bracket to the ring beam and twist clockwise to the standing position. Be sure that the lugs engage securely with the aluminium slots of the ring beam.
Once the brackets are fitted the gutter can then be offered up to the brackets. The outside edge of the gutter should hook over the front of the brackets and then be pivotted up into the back of the bracket, where it will snap into place.
We hope this helps and if you need conservatory gutter brackets or any other conservatory parts, then take a look at Truly PVC Supplies online shop.

The long period of heavy snow, followed by the prolonged cold spell that we experienced last winter took many by surprise. In it’s wake it left much damage to many properties, including conservatory guttering.
Snowfall – to much to bare for conservatory guttering
Snow is a key factory that can affect the integrity of a conservatory, as one foot of snow can treble the weight of a conservatory roof. This is clearly structurally significant, in fact, when designing conservatories the specification of the roof must meet certain guidelines in relation to snowfall. Roofs must be designed with the strength to hold the maximum recorded snowfall for the area of installation, plus 50% extra.
We have found that the added weight of snow baring down on conservatory guttering can break conservatory gutter brackets, leaving the guttering unsupported and sagging.
Extreme temperatures – snap under the cold, crack under the heat
It’s not only the snow that can damage gutter brackets, swings in temperature seem to play its part too. The beginning of 2010 saw brief spells of sub zero temperatures, followed by spells of uncharacteristically warm weather. Some brackets didn’t appreciate this see-sawing and fractured, which also resulted in sagging guttering.
Don’t get caught out
Ignoring broken gutter brackets can lead to further problems such as broken conservatory guttering, leaking conservatory guttering, not to mention the fact that it can become a real eyesore.
If you do find a need to buy replacement gutter brackets, then be sure to use an appropriate amount of brackets, spaced at the manufacturers recommended distance, typically between 300mm and 500mm. Truly Conservatory Repairs can advise you on this.
You can help yourself further by ensuring that your gutters are free from leaves and twigs. Clogged gutters is one of the biggest causes of failed gutter joints and can cause a build up of rainwater that may impede the gutters effectivness.

Door and Window Security
Additional security, convenience and peace of mind.
The Sash Jammer is fixed to the internal face of a door or window and has a short arm that can be turned to trap against the frame, thus using the frame to prevent the door or window from being opened. When fitted to an inward opening sash, the Sash Jammer is fitted to the frame instead.
Sash Jammers act as an effective temporary fix to faulty window handles and can be used on conservatory windows and doors, as well as other uPVC windows and doors around the house.
Easy to Use
Sash Jammers are easy to operate, just a simple turn of the Jammer Arm will lock or release the sash. This makes them a great product to provide additional security, whilst allowing hassle free, quick operation when it’s needed.
Recommended by Insurance companies
Insurance companies now specify Sash Jammers to be fitted to doors that don’t lock independently. An example of this is a set of double doors, featuring a ‘slave’ door that locks top and bottom into the frame and a ‘master’ door, which locks into the ‘slave’ door by hooks on it’s edge. Insurance companies are beginning to insist that ‘master’ doors to be locked against the frame also, an effective solution to this is the Sash Jammer. We recommended 4x Sash Jammers be used for a set of double doors.
A Key Locking version of the Sash Jammer is also available. This version allows the arm to be locked in place, providing a further level of security.
