Copper spouting theft is not an uncommon occurrence, but when Bear Park Early Childhood Centre, Auckland, had their copper spouting stolen for the third time, enough was enough.
Deterring the copper thieves
While copper spouting has always been admired for its aesthetic effect, the recurring crime was enough to deter the nursery from the copper look permanently… or so they thought.
Marley was made aware of the situation by one of their recommended installers, Supercity Property Services. Marley knew exactly what to do – their New Zealand made, designer uPVC spouting and downpipes known as the Marley Stratus Design Series® was the perfect answer to the situation.
Marley offered to replace Bear Park’s system free of charge with their uPVC Typhoon® spouting and 80mm round downpipe in a copper-metallic finish. This has solved the nursery’s problem once and for all without the need to sacrifice their much loved copper look.
The Stratus spouting and downpipe system is low maintenance, which suits Bear Park’s busy schedule. Even with the centre’s position near the coast, products from the Marley Stratus will never rust and they are guaranteed for 15 years. Not only are there two colour finishes to choose from, the Marley Stratus Design Series® is available with internal or external brackets to create different looks. Knowing that the product is also 100% recyclable ensures complete peace of mind.
We’re really thrilled with the result; the product looks great, and we don’t have to worry about thieves anymore. We can’t thank Marley enough for their generosity
says Nikki Joyce, owner of Bear Park Nursery.
