If looking at the installation brochure http://www.windsor.co.th/download/RG_Installation.pdf

They have a joiner which slides 5cm on each side over the other piece (look at picture 6)

Ps; There is a picture of the joiner on the homepage (text says: joiner with smooth linkage)

No idea really but an alternative is those trucks that drive by and will install that cheap (I don't know the English name for it, but in Thai it's call Sang kha See) rain gutter.

You can buy the same profile gutter in galvanised steel from most of the usual places, TW,GH,& DH the price is about 1/4 or less of the price the trucks charge

The WInsor gutter joints: How about to glue them with same glue that is used for blue plastic pipes ? Would not that prevent leaking?

Make sure you can easily remove your downspouts. In our four years at the house, the starlings made those downspouts the highest maintenance item on the whole property. At least two cleanings a year. Even in rainy season, they would make a nest in them. Fortunately, it was an easy job for us, but it could have been a real pain if they didn't come down easily.

To try to avoid birds nests in the downpours I did make a small "ball" of barbed wire and put over the opening. Have not seen any signs of nests after that :-)
But it is a good habit checking the gutters annually for leaves etc, specially if big trees in the area .
