PLUS drains the new

City Quays in Belfast City Centre T

At about 250 metres long, the new City

Quays promenade is laid with a two tone granite block pavement which is drained with 230 metres of Hauraton RECYFIX® PLUS 200 channels fitted with Class D400, HEELSAFE ductile iron gratings. The RECYFIX®

PLUS channel unit is made

of tough, virtually unbreakable recycled polypropylene (PP) formulated to be very resistant to daily temperature fluctuations from frost conditions to strong sunlight, including the Ultra Violet (UV) spectrum. The channel unit also features galvanised steel top edges which house the ductile iron gratings. Complying with the requirements of EN

1433, the PP is given its UV resistance by adding just sufficient carbon black as a stabiliser so that the structural strength of the material is unaffected and a consistent appearance is maintained. The PP is also naturally resistant to de-icing salt. Andy Beirne, Area Project Manager for Hauraton Limited was please the project

went so smoothly, “The channels were delivered to site with their gratings factory fitted, yet as each one metre unit weighed less than 25kg ground-workers Earney Contracts Limited found them easy to handle and install. As with all Hauraton surface water drainage channels, the performance of the RECYFIX®

PLUS range complies with

European Standards (hENs) and carries the CE mark”.

Unique design and unrivalled fire protection with Lunax doors

Lunax, recently acquired by Vetrotech Saint-Gobain, is delighting architects throughout the UK. With the addition of this new solution, Vetrotech Saint-Gobain has enhanced its range of systems in line with the growing architectural trend of combining building transparency, design and high safety standards. Traditionally, form has followed function when it comes to fire protection – but Lunax has changed that. Incorporating versatile Contraflam safety glass and just four discreet clamps, its aesthetic appeal combines on-trend transparency with heightened fire safety. The development of Lunax has been driven by achieving not just fire protection, but beautiful aesthetics that maximise natural light, whilst integrating its four framing solutions. Doors can be customised with a large choice of handles, screen printing, coloured glass and many additional door accessories. Architects have the option to specify single, double or asymmetrical double doors - ideal for both new build and existing spaces. And as a building’s design affects the wellbeing of its occupants, architects are increasingly seeking to source products that address this. Crucially, Lunax doors are fire resistant on both sides.
