Dura Products unveils new drainage system with 70% recycled content.

Building on the success of its other sustainable construction solutions, Dura Products has expanded its range to include a 160 mm drainer for applications with shallow depth. The UK-based construction company specialised in the manufacture of sustainable road kerbs and drainage solutions made with recycled polymers said the new linear surface draining system is both low-cost and efficient. The Durachannel 160 has been designed to suit mainstream applications such as forecourts, carparks, highways and any surface or structure requiring efficient linear drainage. The Durachannel is made of around 70% recycled plastic, with each unit containing a combination of 227 recycled bottles, caps, and closures. The system uses dual, heel friendly slots across the whole length of the channel line to facilitate quick and safe drainage. Access and outfall units enable easy jetting and general maintenance while its size at 500mm x 187mm x 160mm and weight at 4.5 kg means it can be lifted without machinery. “The addition of the 160mm standard unit to our Durachannel range means that a more sustainable solution can be used across all surface drainage projects where a shallow depth unit is the norm such as on forecourts and in carparks,” said Andy Leah, technical manager at Dura Products. “Since 2003 we have been offering environmentally friendly kerbing and drainage products worldwide to help companies reduce embodied carbon and boost their sustainability principles. This new addition to our range is our most competitive and mainstream solution to date,” he added. Dura Products also offers Durakerb, a lightweight and recycled kerbing unit, and Duradrain, a green combined kerbing and drainage solution. In 2022, the company sold over 100,000 units - over 50km - of Durakerb and Duradrain, an increase of close to 70% over the year before. This follows on from a sustained period of growth in 2020, during which the business grew by over 60%. https://www.sustainableplastics.com/news/dura-products-unveils-new-drainage-system-70-recycled-content

                        The recycled materials ♻️ reused and remade into something greater of more durability and coherent quality synchronizing with the norm in criterion " get from earth and re-apply on earth " is truly OUTSTANDING AND REMARKABLE . How We Humankind matters and objects coexit in ONE GOOD PLANET. 👍🏻 AND I believe the drainage system will be adjustable according to the surroundings including on temperatures , humidity and air quality conditions to bring more comfort and safety to everyone's surprise. Great genuine and dependable Match !! ✌🏻👏🏻
