The re-built athletics facilities at Harrow School included an IAAF-standard running track, facilities for long jump, high jump, discus and all the main athletics events, plus a water jump for the steeplechase and an area for the pole vault event – a relatively rare feature in UK school athletics facilities.
Hauraton SPORTFIX components installed at the Harrow School sports complex include drainage channels around the edge of the running track, sand traps and soft kerb edging around the long jump pit and a water jump kit on the steeplechase track.
At any time in the UK, rain can stop play and on tennis hard courts the build-up of water can take some time to run away if attention has not been paid to the surface water drainage requirement.
At Harrow School tennis courts this is not a problem as a discreet drainage channel run located just below the net efficiently drains away any excess rainwater.
Over the years Hauraton have built up a fund of knowledge, second to none, of how to drain sports areas be they soccer grounds, athletic tracks or tennis courts.
Other components in the SPORTFIX range include; Electrical distribution shafts, Service channels for cable management, pitch dish edging components and drainage channels specifically designed for artificial turf pitches.
