Vulcathene is fit for a King!

Vulcathene chemical drainage pipework has been installed in the brand new science laboratories of King’s College School, Wimbledon.

A total of 200 metres of Vulcathene pipework was specified to carry chemical waste from sinks in six science classrooms in the independent boys’ school. Pipework ranging from sizes 1½" to 4" were used in the laboratories which were built as an extension to the existing science block.

Vulcathene has been at the forefront of safe chemical drainage for decades, offering customers peace of mind and guaranteed non leak joints.

Halsion, the installers of the pipework system, took advantage of the two jointing methods available when using Vulcathene; mechanical and Enfusion. Nick Taylor, Project Manager, Halsion, said: “For much of the installation we used the Enfusion jointing process, but directly under the sinks we chose to use the mechanical coupling method. It is essentially for ‘future maintenance’ because the demountable joints make it easy for us to change and add to the pipework without damaging the original system.”

“Durapipe was very helpful during the installation process. We sent the drawings to the specialised technical support team for analysis; this enabled them to inform us which pipework sizes and specifications would be most appropriate.”

Des Dolan, Vulcathene Brand Manager, commented: “Our level of customer service is matched only by the quality of our pipework. Vulcathene can suit any chemical drainage requirement, its corrosion resistant properties and guaranteed non leak joints provide all parties involved with total peace of mind. It has two simple installation methods for ease of installation on site, while the support service we can offer is second to none.”
