Introducing the METROPOLIS grating


uctile iron gratings on surface water drainage channels don’t necessarily need to be utilitarian in appearance with geometric slots or meshes. Inspired by the patterns made by water

flowing down a stream, the surface design of the Hauraton METROPOLIS grating is reminiscent of the ART NOUVEAU style and later ART DECO period. Planners and landscape architects can now choose this

grating to add a touch of class to their schemes in historic and pre-modern townscapes or any surface drainage project where an aesthetic, more decretive look is desired. The METROPOLIS grating is sold separately to fit FASERFIX® factory fitted to RECYFIX®

KS 100 and FASERFIX®

KS channels or PRO channels.

Gratings are available in nominal widths of 100mm and 200 mm Sizing details for FASERFIX®

with METROPOLIS gratings can be found in the Hauraton CIVILS catalogue. Sizing details for RECYFIX® RECYFIX®

PRO 100 and PRO 200, with METROPOLIS

gratings can be found in the Hauraton LANDSCAPE catalogue. The channels provide a loading capacity up to Class D400. All METROPOLIS grating are finished in anti-corrosion, Black KTL finish.

Westbury products sound & secure

Westbury Windows & Joinery has recently published its latest in a string of successful test results. Following on from its energy and security (PAS24) achievements in 2016 Westbury’s products have now also had acoustic assessment too. The products, including casement and sliding sash windows, and French doors, were independently tested at a UKAS-accredited laboratory and performed well across the board; particularly in the reduction of traffic noise. However, the unexpected star of the show was the French doorset; a product that is notorious, industry-wide, for poor sound insulation. To our knowledge, no other timber door manufacturer has published an acoustic test result for a French doorset, yet Westbury’s has proved to be as effective as a casement window, scoring 38Rw on the Weighted Sound Reduction Index (meaning it reduces sound by approximately 38 decibels!). Westbury’s combination of classic, heritage design with high tech performance, makes its windows and doors the ideal solution for any new build or renovation project located near to a busy road, railway, flight path or factory. Videos of the testing in action can be found on the website.
