ACO Building Drainage’s Guide to the Latest Drainage Innovations
(PRWEB UK) 23 September 2012
1. High-performance materials
The latest market-leading drainage system components are manufactured from high-performance materials that make them resistant to corrosion, reducing design risk and ensuring the longevity of the system.
In particular, the use of stainless steel has become more prevalent in applications where both corrosion-free materials and aesthetic considerations are crucial, such as chemical plant rooms, food and drink processing factories and high specialised architectural projects.
Leading manufacturers such as ACO Building Drainage now offer a wide range of stainless steel solutions to provide a sophisticated alternative to traditional PVC-u and cast iron products. ACO Building Drainage's modular channel drain systems for example have been chemically pickled and passivated for optimum durability and corrosion resistance.
2. Modular drainage systems
The latest modular linear drainage systems allow both simple and complex drainage networks to be built into almost all types of floor concrete without the need for onsite fabrication. This leads to a significant cut in the time needed for a project.
ACO Building Drainage's modular drainage systems offer a wide choice of modules in standard lengths between 500mm and 3,000mm with variety of outlet options. All parts have been designed to quickly and easily connect to one another, simplifying the task even further.
When a building will require something more specific than an off-the-shelf solution, the latest range of bespoke drainage products can be custom-manufactured with short lead times and at particularly competitive costs, making even specifying bespoke drainage more straightforward.
3. Technical support
As well as technical innovations to the latest drainage system products, there is more technical support available than ever before. For example, ACO Building Drainage offer accredited CPD, available on a one-to-one basis or to large groups, giving advice on how to 'Specify It Right'.
This expert advice can help all parties to make the right decisions when specifying drainage systems, particularly when the application demands high standards of hygiene and corrosion resistance, and will offer some useful guidelines that building and maintenance engineers need to follow.
By giving careful thought to drainage needs at the design stage, you can make use of the latest drainage technologies and technical support available to reduce installation and lifetime costs, while delivering exceptional finish and performance.
