The University of Sheffield


Interior Building Drainage

The University of Sheffield has recently been voted the number one Russell Group university for student experience (2017).  With 27,947 students currently enrolled at the university, there needs to be plenty of places for students to eat.

Component Developments was approached to design, manufacture and supply 16 bespoke stainless steel gullies to be installed into the canteen kitchen. The floor drainage solution needed to be hygienic, meet all hydraulic requirements, have anti-slip properties and be durable.

The final solution was bespoke stainless steel gullies, large enough to cope with the discharge from bratt pans and other kitchen machinery. The gullies included a removable waste basket, filter plate and odour trap. This prevented foul air from circulating around the kitchen, whilst the removable waste basket allowed for debris to be caught, preventing blockages and allowing for periodic emptying of the basket.

All gullies were topped with Component Development’s anti-slip grating, which has a 23mm x 23mm open mesh, large enough for debris to fall into the system and be caught by the waste basket whilst also preventing employee slippage in places when oil, grease and surface water may be likely.
