RECYFIX Drainage Systems installed at Oldham Academy North



A Hauraton RECYFIX® PRO 100 channel system, fitted with FIBRETEC® C250, 9mm slot gratings, was used to drain the paved playgrounds and asphalted car parks at Oldham Academy North.

The new Oldham Academy North, designed by architectural practice Aedas Architects, is a spacious and colourful three storey building set in sensitively landscaped grounds. With the site being quite flat, and the building surrounded by paved and asphalted surfaces, it was essential rainwater is drained effectively.

A Hauraton RECYFIX® PRO 100 channel system, fitted with FIBRETEC® C250, 9mm slot gratings, was used by groundwork sub-contractor Westoak Construction to drain the paved playgrounds and asphalted car parks. The channels were also installed along parts the building’s façade and across entrance doors to facilitate drainage.

The material, PA-GF used to make the FIBRETEC® grating, was especially developed by Hauraton; the tough, UV resistant, fibre reinforced moulding offers high stability and huge strength for its weight. Complying with loading category Class C250 (BSEN 1433) the grating can easily take the weight of commercial delivery vehicles. The design is a real innovation as its non-corrosive material provides a visually appealing surface finish that retains its black colour. The slots are super smooth, elliptical openings with the moulded bars having slightly raised triangular bosses along their outside edges. As well as providing an elegant appearance, the feature ensures surface water is directed into the slots.

The RECYFIX® channel component is made from 100% recycled PE-PP. The six sizes offered are 160mm wide and range in height from 75mm to 201mm with the FIBRETEC® grating factory fitted on all models. As the largest unit is only 4.6kg, RECYFIX PRO channelling is easily handle and quickly installed on site.
