Hauraton high capacity drainage systems installed at Port Sunderland

owned and situated on the south side of the River Wear, the latest wharf facilities now


he Port of Sunderland now boasts some impressive infrastructure and associated services. Municipally

allow for multi materials handling. A fleet of fork lift trucks, from four tonne to 29 tonne capacity have a wide range of attachments to meet all cargo handling requirements. Additionally, a drop-sided HGV, an articulated tractor unit and two 40-tonne low-loaders are also available for transportation of cargoes within the port estate. Designed to resist the rigours of site work, 180 metres of Hauraton RECYFIX®


8000 high capacity channels were installed to drain the wharf area. Factory fitted with 14mm wide slotted ductile iron inlets, the channels comply with a loading class of F900 so can easily take the weight of the fully laden vehicles employed. Importantly, once installed the complete channel system is highly resilient to the twisting forces imposed by their wheels. The RECYFIX®

HICAP® one metre

channels used each have a water capacity of 171.4 litres so the 180 metre channel system

installed is able to accept a water volume of 30852 litres. Trash boxes to match the channels were also supplied.

Cost savings with BAL Flexbone 2Easy

Preparation time was reduced dramatically with the use of BAL’s new floating uncoupling mat – Flexbone 2Easy – on a prime redevelopment in County Durham. The 200m² problem screed to be tiled had two days of preparatory work

scheduled before installation could even begin, but this was reduced to just half a day using BAL Flexbone 2Easy. The use of BAL Flexbone 2Easy floating uncoupling mat alleviated the need to abrade and prime the screed, as the only preparation required was a quick sweep of the surface. BAL Flexbone 2Easy is a unique mat to the UK market which is truly uncoupled, protecting floor tiles from lateral movement.
