Parking for school buses and cars can be a problem outside many rural schools but not at Tondu Primary School near Bridgend, South Wales.
An extensive asphalted parking area has been created next to the school with surface water drainage channels supplied by Hauraton Limited.
150 metres of FASERFIX® KS 100 Fibre Reinforced Concrete channels fitted with Class E600 ductile iron gratings were installed by Churngold Construction Limited in the school bus drop-off area with a further 50 metres of RECYFIX® PLUS 100 Class D400 channels in the adjacent car park.
RECYFIX® channels are made from tough, 100% recycled polypropylene (PP). Both channels have galvanised steel reinforcement housings that take the gratings. All the gratings had 6mm HEELSAFE slots.
