Harmer Drainage Solution For Salford Student Accomodation

Posted by judy


ChapelSt_PRpic_smallHarmer Stainless Steel Spa Channels, have been chosen to provide a robust drainage solution for stylish new student accomodation in Salford.

Development of the £3million student block, X1 Chapel Street, was undertaken by Bardsley Construction on behalf of X1 Developments and was completed in September 2014.

Contracted merchant suppliers, BSS Industrial in Manchester, supplied over 50 linear metres of Alumasc’s bespoke stainless steel spa channels for bathrooms across the entire project, following the failure of a previous supplier to deliver a successful solution. The channels were installed by specialist contractor Lorne Stewart.

The project is one of the UK’s first installations of the new Harmer Stainless Steel Floor Drainage range, which was recently added to Alumasc’s already extensive portfolio of drainage solutions for the construction industry.

Pete Wainer, Area Sales Manager at Alumasc Rainwater & Drainage, comments:

“The project was in need of a completely bespoke solution and had already suffered problems with previous suppliers. Harmer was invited to manufacture the spa channels within a very tight timescale, for the entire building, comprising over 100 bathrooms.

“The technical challenge was to clamp the base of the channels into place through the wet room vinyl flooring, dressing it into the floor to provide a seamless and watertight finish.

“By manufacturing a highly effective bespoke working sample, Alumasc was able to first demonstrate an effective solution to the problem before we were commissioned to provide the channels for the entire project. The result was a smooth installation, highlighting the effectiveness of this new Harmer product range.”

Alumasc’s new Harmer range comprises high-performance, highly versatile stainless steel floor drains, channel drains, shower and wet room drainage, capable of withstanding some of the most demanding applications.
