Functional, Sustainable & Accessible – A Specifier’s Guide to Recycled Polymer Surface Water Drain Solutions
Beyond more obvious comments around carbon abatement and so on, one message that emerged from the devastating floods of 2022 was that, in many cases, damage could have been avoided if the properties involved included appropriate drainage systems.
It has become clear that – in these times of climate change and variable rainfall patterns – specifiers need to fully aware of the various draining options, along with their benefits and limitations.
They need to be aware of the difference between Class B and Class D Grates and the types of applications for which each is suitable. They need to understand concepts like ‘Load Rating’ and ‘Flow Rates’, and how they relate to product choice. And, having decided upon an appropriate drainage system, they have to understand how to best integrate into their specific project.
In this session of CPD Live, our speakers address these issues and more. They outline the best ways to secure drainage solutions that are not just functional, but also sustainable and accessible.
At the end of this presentation, you should be able to:
- Explain why good drainage is important and why, if specified correctly, it can help reduce damage caused by flooding
- Outline the various types of drainage systems available and the types of applications they are suitable for
- Identify the regulations that apply to the installation of drainage systems in Australia
- Outline the best ways to secure drainage solutions that are not just functional, but also sustainable and accessible.
