the edge of Trafford Park, Manchester. The 7712m² warehouse has upwards of 1440m² associated office space including an under-croft and reception area.

Surface drainage required at T2 Trafford

Point office car park access road and service yard required the specification of high capacity and very robust channel systems capable of withstanding the daily passage of cars as well as the massive twisting forces exerted by the tyres of manoeuvring HGVs. Hauraton RECYFIX®

sizes of RECYFIX® HICAP® channels were

also installed in the concreted service yard; 78 metres of HICAP 150 and 120 metres of HICAP 300. Both PP moulded channel sizes were supplied with factory fitted 28mm wide slotted ductile iron gratings for Class F900 loading category. The 198 metres of channel installed in the service yard has a total water capacity of just over 24156 litres. With a maximum channel weight of

200/450 channels were installed in the asphalt car park. With a nominal grating width of 200mm (Channel internal

installed in the car park has a total water capacity of just over 9996 litres and a loading category of up to Class D400.

Neaco’s balance of form and function enabled us to fulfill our brief with a cost effective solution, whilst achieving the desired aesthetic.” ‘Legendary’ Resiblock stabilises and protects

During the Summer of 2017, John O’Flynn Developments utilised Resiblock’s ‘Legendary’, Resiblock ‘22’ joint stabiliser, to stabilise and protect paving at a prestigious housing development in Oxfordshire. Bloor Homes used circa 1600m² of Charcoal-coloured Concrete Block Paving as the roadway for this newly developed estate. As such, Resiblock ‘22’ was recommended as the sealer of

choice, as it’s sand stabilisation capabilities will prevent paving failure induced by sand loss, caused by the constant trafficking of the area, environmental elements and cleaning regimes.

23,4kg per unit, both the RECYFIX® MONOTEC and HICAP channels were well within the weight limitation for manual lifting so made the contractors job on site just that little bit easier. For a given area to be drained, these ranges of high capacity channels also mean fewer channel runs, less excavation work, reduced foundation concrete needed and substantially less after care; benefits appreciated by the groundwork contractor, PP O'Connor and site manager.
