Component Developments designed a stainless steel drainage channel for GYMBOX

February 2018

Gymbox is revolutionising the world of exercise. Originating in a car park Gymbox has grown from a car park in Holborn to a multitude of gyms through the London area. Now offering 104 different classes a week from “Loaded Yoga” to “Frame Fitness” it has something for everyone and anyone. Component Developments was approached to design, manufacture and supply the stainless steel floor drainage solutions for the Gymbox buildings.
Component Developments designed a stainless steel drainage channel profile specifically for leisure applications. The system comes complete with a 1:100 built in fall to Component Developments trapped outlet gully complete with a removable waste basket, odour trap and rodding port. The removable waste basket is imperative in shower areas where debris such as human hair would otherwise get into the system and cause blockages.
Component Developments also supplied a number of standalone gullies as part of the overall floor drainage solutions. These also included removable waste baskets and odour traps however had side outlets due to slight depth restrictions on site. The side outlet was a 75mm diameter pipe, which Component Developments included a 75.-110mm diameter increaser allowing the contractors on site to easily connect up to the necessary pipes.
All gullies and channels were topped with Component Developments Heelsafe grating. This has a 47 x 5mm open mesh, and a 12 x 3mm load bar which is suitable for pedestrian loadings. The thin, smooth mesh is perfectly safe and comfortable for bare feet.
The overall drainage solution was a sustainable, durable and aesthetically pleasing stainless steel floor drainage solution that would last.
