Vulcathene is top of the class at Rednock School
Vulcathene chemical drainage pipework was the only choice for the major £28 million redevelopment of Rednock School in Gloucestershire.
Under the Building Schools for the Future programme, the majority of the existing buildings have been replaced, with only the music and drama blocks retained from the original structure and incorporated into the 12,800m² new build. Commended for its pioneering eco-friendly design, the state-of-the-art school includes a biomass boiler, wind turbine, grassed roof and uses rainwater in the toilets.
As part of the redevelopment, the Vulcathene Mechanical pipework system in sizes up to 50mm has been installed by Intoheat Ltd for the chemical drainage requirements of the eight science laboratories within the school.
The market leading product was specified due to its proven track record for chemical drainage, as Vulcathene is the market leader in chemical drainage pipework and is the only product that has passed the test of time in terms of safely conveying chemical waste.
Safety has to be the number one priority within schools and with experiments in science laboratories often leading to unknown combinations of chemicals being created, it is imperative that the drainage system can safely transport any chemical concoctions. Vulcathene can offer education establishments the reassurance that it has a proven pedigree in dealing with all manner of chemical waste cocktails from laboratories across the world and over many decades.
Available in sizes from 38mm – 152mm, Vulcathene is a purpose designed chemical drainage system available in two easy jointing methods; Mechanical for demountable joints and Enfusion for welded joints, offering complete flexibility for designers and installers of chemical waste systems.
