A new distribution centre at Littlebrook Business Park features market leading Gatic CastSlot Littlebrook (Orbital 47) – it is home to several industrial companies which rely on the near constant movement of goods.
Zach Graham, Alumasc Area Sales Manager for London and the South East, commented: “Our work involved the installation of Gatic Slotdrain in a distribution centre at Littlebrook.
“The distribution centre is in an ideal location due to the surrounding environment with easy access to the M25. Further to this, as the loading area was fairly small, it is put under a lot of pressure every day, with constantly turning vehicles.
“This meant that any surface water management product installed had to be guaranteed to withstand extremely heavy and frequent loads.”
In an area where unremitting, slow turning traffic is a major consideration, Gatic CastSlot, from the Gatic Slotdrain range, was an obvious choice in providing a reliable water management system for this project.
Gatic specialises in integrated, high capacity surface water management and Engineered Access Covers – its surface water drainage systems have been used to capture, control and return run-off into the natural water cycle, even in high pressure situations.
Gatic Slotdrain’s reputation as a front runner for surface drainage systems in infrastructure hubs such as ports, airports and industrial units, made it first choice for this project, and ideal overall for sites such as Littlebrook.
The CastSlot system was specially chosen for its high capacity surface water intake, as well as its high-performance loading capabilities. It has been specifically designed to bear load ratings of up to F900, which is 90 tonnes.
Zach added: “The use of our robust CastSlot system was highlighted upon inspection, as no disruption or damage was caused when lorries were visibly turning on it.”
Proven in the most demanding infrastructure, industrial and commercial projects, the Gatic range consists of exterior surface water channels, high capacity channels, linear and slot drainage, as well as access covers.
Gatic CastSlot was also used on another depot within this project. Pleased with the outcome, Zach said: “This just goes to show the strength of the brand and the great reputation of the product. These sites now have solutions that will last and perform, testament to Gatic’s quality manufacturing.”
