Wavin’s Hepworth Clay releases new one-stop-shop guide for designers and specifiers

  • 17 Feb 2020

Wavin has launched its new Hepworth Clay specification and design guide, aimed to support designers and specifiers in choosing drainage solutions and adhering to the latest legislation and standards.

The new guide includes advice and tips on designing drainage layout, along with guidance on site access point positioning for future maintenance considerations.

Designers and contractors will also be able to use the guide as a reference point for confirming their plans are structurally satisfactory and for advice on how to make sure the suggested system has adequate hydraulic capacity for proposed and future flows.

The design section of the also gives a first look at the upcoming BS 9295 standard regarding recycled aggregates for bedding clay pipes, providing tips and advice on how to best take advantage of recycled aggregates to increase sustainability of a project without increasing risk.

Paul Wydell, Hepworth Clay Product Manager at Wavin, commented: “The new guide provides much more than product details and installation information – we’ve designed it to be a helpful reference point that will help designers and specifiers transfer designs from the page to the site. It will help you every step of the way from concept to commissioning.”

The guide contains sample texts to help with easier and more accurate specification of clay drainage, as well as technical notes on working with difficult site conditions.

This helps to alleviate reliance on specifications that have been copied from previous drawings and documentation, with simple to use specification clauses.

Paul added: “It’s a tool for both those that are familiar with the subject but need to update their reference material and those who are recently qualified engineers who need to build their knowledge and experience quickly and accurately.

“Essentially, it’s a guide that will protect the reputation of your client, the practice and yourself all rolled in to one.”
