Charcon, the commercial hard landscaping division of Aggregate Industries, has reported continued sales growth for its linear drainage product: Safeticurb. Having relaunched the product in January 2016, the innovative technology vastly reduces the need for conventional underground piping, and offers a discrete solution for removing surface water.
The product continues to be specified on a variety of hard landscaping projects, with supermarket chain, Sainsbury’s, the latest name on the list. The product was installed in the Staines superstore in spring 2017, providing an effective and well-priced solution to eliminate standing surface water around the complex.
Safeticurb is designed to fit most hard landscaping projects, including car parks, industrial sites and pedestrianised developments. The product is tested to BS EN 1433 standards and can withstand up to 400kN, Class D, in its heaviest specification.
To create a perfect balance between cost and effectiveness, the product runs parallel drainage sections at 30-35m intervals across the total drainage area. The system also requires very little maintenance, reducing overheads through smart design.
Mike Davies, sector marketing manager for Charcon, comments: “Safeticurb has been a fantastic success and its reputation is still growing today. The system offers substantial cost savings while still providing good performance for the removal of surface water.”
