Stansted Airport in London is the latest in a long line of prestigious installations of Harmer SML lightweight cast iron soil and waste system from Alumasc.
Stansted is the UK’s fourth busiest airport, handling over 18 million passengers every year.
Harmer’s SML is a dry jointed pipework system which was fitted as part of an £80million investment programme including improvements to the public facilities in the terminal building. Other upgrades on the site, owned by the Manchester Airports Group, include a greater choice of shops, bars and restaurants as well as a seventy per cent increase in seating capacity.
Supplied by Alumasc’s merchant partners, BSS Cambridge, the Harmer system was fitted by Stansted company HJ Services. Director Henry Morgan, comments: “This was the first time we’d used Harmer SML on such a large scale and the installation went very smoothly allowing us to deliver on time. We were very pleased with the product and would be happy to use it again on future installations.”
Wayne Willmott, National Sales Manager for Harmer Drainage, said:
“We were pleased to be involved in such a large project. This was a significant installation, which saw over 400 metres of piping installed to meet the needs over 90 new toilet and basin units. Alumasc is continually evolving the Harmer product range to meet industry demands, and the many advantages our SML range will see Stansted Airport and its visitors, benefitting for years to come.”
With a European history spanning over 30 years, Harmer SML offers a cast iron drainage solution which is suitable for a wide range of applications. The system is easy to install with lightweight, strong and durable components requiring minimal maintenance over its lifetime.
With unsurpassed quality and performance standards, Harmer SML carries British Board Agrement Certification, 05/4191. The pipes and fittings meet the European Standard BS EN 877, further assured by the new CE Marking, showing full compliance with EU manufacturing, testing and technical performance requirements.
