Clark-Drain strengthens its ductile iron recessed cover range
Clark-Drain strengthens its ductile iron recessed cover range.
Drainage product and access cover leader, Clark-Drain, introduces CD D930J-DSL, adding to its popular ductile iron recessed manhole covers which include both C250 and D400 loading specifications.
Kite-mark certified to BS EN124-2:2015, the new cover extends the clear opening access of the range to 900mm x 900mm, which also includes 600mm x 600mm options.
Designed for non-carriageway locations, where paving is specified, but can also be filled with concrete, tarmac and resin aggregates, the D400 cover is ideal for use in areas trafficked by slow moving heavy goods vehicles such as retail delivery areas, private access roads, bus depots, petrol stations, commercial and industrial delivery and transport hubs.
All the covers in the range incorporate features which benefit both the built environment and the public. These include locking screws for added security and stability in use, whilst the double seal design of the cover and frame, when used with grease (CD 285), helps to control odour egress.
With a load rating of up to 40T, their durability adds to the sustainable life of Clark-Drain installations, in heavily trafficked areas in the UK, including Blackburn Bus Station, and internationally, at Ventspils Seaport, Latvia.
Products in the range include CD D930J-DSL, CD D630J-DSL and CD C630H-DSL.
Clark Drain Introduces Technodrain into UK Construction
Clark Drain Ltd unveils Technodrain®, a new addition to its popular linear drainage range that broadens the choice for UK construction.
Designed for surface water management, the versatility of Technodrain® enables it to be used across all construction environments as a light, robust, technical solution for run-off surface design.
Made from High Density Polyethylene, Technodrain® encompasses all load classes (A15-F900) in accordance with European standard EN 1433, comprising an array of grating design options in ductile iron, galvanised steel and stainless steel.
The Technodrain® system will be available in 100mm, 150mm, 200mm and 300mm internal widths.
With the advantage of light-weight, polyethylene – e.g. the EXEL 200HV has a 42.61 l/s hydraulic capacity ideal for use in road drainage and car parks and weighs 26.1kg, complete with D400 ductile iron grating – its size to weight ratio maximises savings in transport and installation cost.
Technologically advanced, Technodrain® is resistant to temperature change with a thermal range between -60OC and +100OC. It is also resistant to a wide range of acids, salts and hydrocarbons so that it can be used in challenging environments such as chemical plants, petrol stations and surfaces where ant-freeze salts are used.
Technodrain® incorporates many other benefits. Its robust design adds to its sustainable life, whilst installation is eased with tongue and groove joints enabling the connection of multiple channels with a ready-mounted grate. Its preformed lateral and vertical channel outlets also provide quick and easy connection to discharge pipes.
Furthermore, project design is supported by integrated Tee-and Cross-section joints that can adapt the drainage line, enabling control over the accuracy and cost effectiveness of the whole system.
An important additional accessory is the Technodrain® sump unit. It can be installed as a terminal unit off the line or as a central element of two converging lines. The sump is equipped with an optional anti-odour siphon that can be removed easily for cleaning purposes and a grating to filter leaves and debris. Use of the sump allows you to increase the out-flow diameter of all channels up to Ø200.
Selection of Technodrain range
John Carter, Head of Sales and Marketing at Clark Drain comments: “Both for the contractor and the operator, Technodrain offers technical innovation and a high degree of cost saving, whilst providing a highly efficient system for surface water design and management right across the construction project spectrum”
