A 930 m² (10,000 ft²) Farmfood store opened its doors to customers this Spring (2017) on the Crompton Retail Park, Doncaster, West Yorkshire. For this new section of the Retail Park’s car park the 150 spaces, was drained by some 73 metres of RECYFIX® MONOTEC, Hauraton’s high capacity channel drainage system.
The store joins a Dunelm outlet at 3720 m² (40,000 ft²) a Marston’s Public House, a Goals Soccer Centre and other retail and leisure facilities on the 13 acre site located just off the Wheatley Hall Road (A630).
Hauraton Limited introduced the RECYFIX® MONOTEC, system in January 2016.The new Home Bargains store joins the numerous installations successfully completed in the United Kingdom.
Two RECYFIX® MONOTEC 100 models were installed in the car park’s asphalt surface, both channels having a grating width of 100mm (Channel internal dimension). The larger channel has an overall height of 380mm and provides a cross-section of 355.5cm2. The smaller channel has an overall height of 280mm and provides a cross-section of 245.5cm2. The 73 metres of channel installed has a total water capacity of just over 2444 litres.
The MONOTEC one metre long channel component is of a sturdy monolithic design where the HEELSAFE grating and the tongue and groove linking system are integral to the channel moulding. The whole unit is made of tough, virtually unbreakable polypropylene (PP) formulated to be very resistant to daily temperature fluctuations from frost conditions to strong sunlight, including the Ultra Violet (UV) spectrum. PP is naturally resistant to de-icing salt. Complying with the requirements of EN 1433, the PP is given its UV resistance by adding just sufficient stabiliser so that the structural strength of the material is unaffected and a consistent appearance is maintained. The MONOTEC channels have a loading category of up to Class D400.
Colin Taff, Hauraton‘s Project Manager for Yorkshire comments;
“One of the features of our monolithic system is that the grating is moulded as part of the channel, so for this type of application in a frequently trafficked public area, there is no potential for gratings to come detached from the channel ”.
All Hauraton surface water drainage systems’ comply with European Standards (hENs) and carries the CE mark.
