Hauraton Service Channels keep cables safe but accessible


auraton Limited, well known for their surface water drainage products, also offer three ranges of

Service Channel suitable for use as sub-surface cable ducting for both indoor or outdoor locations including; sports venues, major stadiums, exhibition halls, factories, warehousing and container depots. The channels provide safe yet accessible installation of electrical and data cables. Two ranges are based on the company’s one metre long fibre reinforced concrete

channels, FASERFIX® SUPER and KS. The

SUPER models incorporate a 40mm deep galvanised angled housings on their top edges allowing Class E600 ductile iron covers to be fitted. The KS models have a 20mm deep galvanised angled housing and are available for Class C250 or where necessary E600. The third range is based on Hauraton’s RECYFIX®

PRO channel made from 100

per cent recycled polypropylene. These have a 20mm galvanised housing allowing Class C250 covers to be fitted. Weighing less than 25kg the PRO channels are suitable where easy handling is desirable. With SUPER and KS models, the ductile

iron covers are securely located into the housings by the company’s SIDELOCK fixing system. To access the cables, covers are easily removed using a large screwdriver at the appropriate leverage points. In practice, the SIDELOCK system has proved to be 90 per cent quicker than any other fixing method available. Where necessary, covers can be

bolted down. PRO models have bolt down covers as standard. The popular nominal widths offered with Hauraton Service Channels are 200mm and 300mm. These models incorporate a perforated steel galvanised cable tray that is suspended within the channel keeping the cables clear of any water that may access the channel. The water can then be safely drained away.

Kemper System delivers roof refurbishment to Art Deco Gem

Lancashire, required urgent repair. The building was experiencing standing water on a largely zero falls roof with only four drainage outlets, meaning water had started to leak into the occupied offices below. Kemper System’s Stratex Warm Roof system using its Kemperol V210 was specified


he roof of an occupied 1930s art deco municipal office building, situated in the busy town centre of Blackpool,

for the 1,200m2 roof area – offering

exceptional performance and supplied as a complete integrated system of matched components. The roof was extremely complex with

detailing around air-conditioning units, raised steelwork and cable trays in close proximity. Contractors also removed and replaced eight rooflights and boxed-in others that were no longer required. All existing steel work on the roof was treated and encapsulated with plywood and waterproofed with Kemperol to ensure additional life span. The cold-applied Kemperol V210 liquid

resin saturates a non-woven reinforcement fleece that is tailored to the exact contours and details of the roof. The waterproofing is installed in a single process and cures to provide a robust waterproof membrane that cannot delaminate and is UV stable. Mark Atherton, managing director at

Castle Contractors, said: “There were three main challenges to overcome on this project

– the safe removal of the existing ballast, cleaning of the roof prior to application, and the creation of drainage channels to carry water to the outlets.” The project was shortlisted for the Liquid Roofing and Waterproofing Awards due to the complexity of the roof which made this an ideal project for a liquid applied membrane, the technical solution offered, and the difficulties experienced with site preparation and logistics.
