Conductor heads enhance the beauty and architectural style on a building. They are traditionally installed under the soffit to let air into the line which then prevents excess noise (gurgling) and helps stop vacuum lock. They are also used for through wall scuppers and roof drains.
Why is this conductor head not available in aluminum?
This conductor head can be manufactured in aluminum, however, since every side of this item is one individual piece of metal, that makes the need for a lot of rivets when putting this together, which some customer don't like. For this reason, we decided to offer this one as a standard in stainless steel. This way, we can still solder the seams like in copper, but powder coat it to match the standard colors we offer. If you still decide you want it in aluminum, please contact us for a quote.
