With record rainfalls fast becoming the norm across the UK, leading manufacturer of plumbing, rainwater and drainage systems Wavin will use Stand N4040 at Ecobuild 2015 to launch QuickStream, a siphonic roof drainage system that offers a highly efficient and extremely cost effective way to discharge rainwater from large or complex roof areas.
Having the advantage of fewer outlets and roof penetrations enabling more design freedom for large roof areas, Wavin QuickStream is the preferred system compared to traditional gravity systems and offers outstanding benefits including smaller pipe dimensions, higher flow rates, reduced installation times and less water on roofs.
Specially designed roof outlets allow the intake of water and prevent the ingress of air. The difference in height between the roof outlets and the rainwater discharge level is utilised to gain the energy that increases flow velocity. Compared to a traditional gravity system, the rainwater is then discharged at a much higher rate, ensuring the water is quickly removed from the roof. This high velocity discharge has the added benefit of self-cleaning the system.
Already proven across Europe on industrial, commercial and public buildings, Wavin’s QuickStream system includes a comprehensive range of 3rd party approved, sea resistant roof outlets; a specially developed safe and easy to install bracketing system, designed to handle the weight and thermal expansion challenges of a suspended siphonic roof drainage system; and a dedicated range of pipes, fittings and accessories. This range is complemented by market leading, tried and tested, AutoCAD compatible design software, with the highest level of security and safety checks in the industry.
Set to be officially unveiled at Ecobuild 2015, to be held at London’s ExCeL exhibition and conference centre on 3rd – 5th March, this latest innovation reinforces Wavin as a leader in managing stormwater at source through efficient capture, transportation, cleansing and attenuation.
