Find out how
This is a simplified version of the other box gutter calculators.
There is no allowance for vertical faces or rain shadow effects.
However the user can allow for vertical faces by adding
half the vertical area to the catchment area.
By not allowing for rain shadow effects, rain is assumed to be coming
from all directions at once. This may result in a slightly larger box gutter.
However this effect is insignificant for flattish roofs, or small vertical faces. Legend: Boxes shown like this are results. No input needed.
