Gray iron downspout boots are used as
a transition piece for connecting sheet metal exposed downspouts to
underground cast soil piping in low areas that are subjected to
vehicular traffic , lawn equipment and in public areas such as
hospitals or schools. Solid cast iron downspout boots ensure that
the bottom part of the exposed metal downspout is protected from
damage. Downspout boots also enhance the building appearance.
There are different types of cast iron
downspout boots: Angular, offset and straight are some examples.
Downspout boots can be connected to trench systems, connected below
grade to a horizontal or vertical pipe, or installed with a splash
A rectangular downspout to a round
discharge outlet is designed to empty into a soil pipe. This
downspout boot is designed with an offset from the building to allow
the pipe hub to fit around the downspout boot. They may be used with
PVC pipe with a no-hub coupling (furnished by others). Most
downspout boots have fastening lug slots to fasten to the building.
When ordering downspout boots, you
will need to know the inside top bell dimension, length and bottom
outside spigot dimension. Some downspout boots are available with a
cleanout plug, with a powdercoat finish or with one coat of primer.

Durability - Cast iron downspout boots are fully resistant to damage by impact and general wear and tear.

All downspout boots are available painted or powder coated in a wide range of colors and may also feature a custom design or special lettering on the front panel.
Mounted Angular Downspout Boot:
Function - An essential element of a downspout boot’s design is consistent flow capacity from the top bell through the outlet. J.R. Hoe downspout
boots’ contoured design ensures positive flow from the top bell into the soil
pipe. Sharp angles inherent in fabricated downspout boots lead to flow
inefficiencies and clogging.
