Gatic, the global leader in access covers and civil drainage systems, has installed Slotdrain CastSlot Treadsafe, its high capacity surface water drainage at Hamilton Business Park in Southampton.
The £2m project, spanning 24,000 square feet, involved building brand new industrial and warehouse units; it is the final phase of a 30-year project, which sees the business park now contain a total of 26 units, covering 250,000 square feet and 20 acres of space.
BCT Services worked with the developers to complete the project; John Griffin, buyer for BCT Services, who has three decades of construction experience and is familiar with Gatic’s products, commented: “Our specification called for CastSlot but I would have recommended using it anyway. It’s a good product, practical and easy to handle.
“It comes in three, one and a half metre lengths, which are designed with quick and safe installation in mind, and the metal construction means it’s not liable to breakages – which speeds up installation and improves safety, as well as saving cost.”
CastSlot is part of Gatic’s market leading Slotdrain range, available with a 10mm or 30mm opening and a load classification of up to F900, CastSlot is perfect for areas which are subject to heavy loads and slow turning traffic such as warehouse and industrial units.
Its unobtrusive profile sits neatly within concrete, asphalt and block surface finishes, and an electro painted ductile iron throat section is securely fixed to the galvanised steel channel body for an incredibly robust yet discreet drainage system. The Treadsafe option is recommended for areas where regular foot traffic is common.
