Saint-Gobain PAM UK to showcase innovations delivering safety, security and reduced costs at traffex 2011

Iron technology leader Saint-Gobain PAM UK will showcase a range of products that significantly contribute towards improvements in road safety, health & safety, asset security and whole life cost optimisation at this year’s Traffex event at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham from 29-31 March 2011.

Visitors to stand A62 can discover the company’s highly innovative ductile iron access covers and gratings products line-up which is the preferred choice of leading utility companies and highways contractors nationwide.

All manufactured in the UK, the company’s products include GripTop, a range of access covers with an aggregate surface designed to reduce the risk of skidding among two-wheeled road users; the Aquamax gully grate whose high absorption capacities allow them to quickly and safely drain roads submitted to increasingly frequent heavy rain. Aquamax also incorporates special, heavy duty features which enable it to cope with stringent traffic conditions with zero minimal noise; Saint-Gobain PAM UK’s acclaimed Load Transfer System which reduces the risk of cracking and premature failure; and an automatic spring bar locking system to deter theft and so minimise future replacement costs.

Paul Thompson, Marketing Manager - Municipal Castings at Saint-Gobain PAM UK, commented: “Our aim is always to establish collaborative client relationships which lead to the adoption of products and methods which respect the needs of all stakeholders.

“This approach has been proven to result in the development of innovative products that significantly contribute towards cost-effective road maintenance, promotion of best practice, sustainable development, and the provision of secure, safe and reliable utility and highway services.

“At Saint-Gobain PAM UK we operate and encourage a programme of continuous improvement in product development, with GripTop and Aquamax just two of many innovative ranges we have brought to market in recent years.”
