Halifax Soil & Drain is a socketless, mechanically jointed cast iron drainage and wastewater system. It is designed to minimise installation difficulties and maintenance costs over its lifetime. This is a fit and forget system.
It provides all the benefits of conventional cast iron systems but also offers significant savings on installation costs due to modern jointing techniques which employ ductile iron or stainless steel couplings.
The Halifax System is finished externally in a two part epoxy coating, red for above ground and grey for below ground.
The complete range is fully compliant with BS EN 877:1999 + A1:2006 Incorporating Corrigendum 2008 and has been tested and approved by both BBA and BSI Kitemark
Cast iron drainage products are proven to be reliable, durable and strong. They are safe, non-combustible, quiet and with minimal maintenance will last the life of a building. Cast iron is sustainable and can be fully recycled without any loss of its original properties.
“Iron is the fourth most common element in the earth’s crust and can be fully recycled to produce products of equal integrity to the product it has been recycled from. This makes it a very sustainable material.
Our production process is energy intensive but this can be offset by the durability and longevity of cast iron products which will serve the life of a building and can still be recycled after the building has gone.
These properties, combined with other elements in a well designed, modern building can help achieve the highest environmental ratings”
The Halifax Soil & Drain system consists of a wide range of pipes and fittings which are suitable for the majority of applications including hospitals, prisons, apartments, offices and multi storey car parks.
The products are available in diameters of 50 – 200mm and include bends, branches, access fittings, couplings and brackets.
