Market knowledge and technical expertise


JFC Plastics is a specialist manufacturer of plastic drainage and water management solutions for the civil engineering and construction sectors. Its sales director, Mark Perry, explains the company’s involvement with the rail sector.


JFC


Plastics’ pioneering CorriPipe range is the material of choice for


numerous largescale rail projects throughout the UK. One such project is the Network Rail Borders Railway project, which will establish a passenger rail from Edinburgh to Tweedbank (through Midlothian) for the fi rst time in 40 years. JFC Plastics was recently selected by Aqua Fabrications, Skelmersdale for the supply of the necessary railway drainage pipe and ducting solutions for this project.


JFC CorriPipe is a Twinwall high density polyethylene pipe manufactured from 100% recycled plastic. Two high density polyethylene walls are extruded simultaneously, one inside the other, and heat-welded together in one continuous process. The outer wall is corrugated providing excellent structural strength which reduces the possibility of on- site damage. The inner wall has a smooth seamless fi nish to assist hydraulic fl ow.


The design, unlike traditional single-wall pipe, prevents silt accumulation. Available perforated, unperforated and half perforated, JFC CorriPipe is suitable for a wide range of surface and stormwater drainage applications including rail track, roads and land reclamation projects. CorriPipe is fully BBA (British Board of Agrément) approved, HAPAS (Highways Agency Product Approval Scheme) certifi ed and is backed with comprehensive technical


support and a network of stockists across the UK. In addition, JFC Plastics has full Network Rail PADS Approval.


JFC also offer a broad range of CorriPipe fi ttings and accessories that are quick and effi cient to use and widen the range of applications for which it can be used. Bespoke pre-fabricated fi ttings are available on request.


We have recently extended the Corri range to include Ducting and Coil solutions for multiple applications. JFC CorriDuct is suitable for the protection of electrical and street lighting cables as well as fi bre optic cabling for telecommunication systems. They are manufactured to two specifi cations depending on the required application:


1. BS EN 50086-2-4:1994 (Conduit Systems for Electrical Installations) 2. ENATS 12-24 – Class 2 (Technical Specifi cations for plastic ducts for buried electric cables)


JFC also design a range of catchpits or silt traps, which are used to separate silt and other particles as part of the drainage systems. As each individual SuDS system is different, the catchpits and traps are individually fabricated to take into account the water fl ow rates and ground conditions of each site. They have been successfully used in a wide range of railway and


highway drainage systems.


JFC also offer an extensive portfolio of stormwater management and wastewater treatment solutions. The HydroChamber system is used to provide an underground storage tank for stormwater runoff in attenuation and soak-away applications and suitable where applicable for railway station or surrounding car park areas.


With over 25 years of manufacturing experience, we pride ourselves in nurturing strong, trusted relationships with our customers. Our blend of market knowledge and technical expertise allows us to deliver distinctive customer service from the initial project specifi cation through to completion. We control all the major aspects of our business including plastic recycling, R&D and engineering which gives us the ability to respond quickly to changing customer needs and market developments.


We consistently refi ne our products and bring new and innovative solutions to the market. Offering a comprehensive product range and expert advice, JFC is the brand of choice for leading contractors and project managers in the rail sector.
