The 1775 is used as a downspout cover/nozzle for rainwater leaders discharging water from roof drains to the ground or sidewalk and located near the base of the building wall. This item is unique although it does not have the traditional tongue common with the other downspout nozzles. It is made entirely from type 304 stainless steel and features a hinged perforated cover. It has four 3/8” diameter holes for attaching to the building structure. The hinged cover prevents birds from building nests in the opening and prevents vermin from entering into the rainwater leader. For minimal/light flows the rainwater will flow through the perforated holes but during heavy flows the hinged cover will open. It is available from 1½” to 15” diameter pipe sizes. Please refer to the attached submittal and Smith’s website for additional information.
