Interior Building Drainage

Francis Crick was one of Britain’s greatest scientists, he is best known for his work with James Watson which led to the identification of the structure of DA in 1953. The Francis Crick Institute was named after this famous scientist, and aims to further develop our scientific understanding.

Component Developments was approached by C&C Catering to design, manufacture and supply the stainless steel drainage needed for the canteen kitchen. The floor finish was vinyl, and therefore Component Developments used their Vinoseal range, which has a vinyl clamping assembly. The vinyl is laid over a flange, then is clamped in position, leaving a neat floor finish and prevents the potential for seepage and bacteria growth.

The channel systems were designed in partnership with C&C Catering, to ensure each kitchen appliance has the best possible drainage solution and to ensure the outlets co-ordinated with the connecting drainage pipework at high level below. Component Developments supplied stainless steel drainage channels (3010 profile) with four different widths to accommodate for the different kitchen appliances’ discharges. All systems came complete with built-in falls to a 5200 gully complete with a waste basket, odour trap, rodding port and a 110 diameter spigot. All channels were topped with an anti-slip grating, to prevent employee injury.

Component Developments also designed, manufactured and supplied stainless steel trapped outlet gullies, again with a Vinoseal clamping assembly. They also included removable waste baskets, odour traps, rodding ports and 110mm diameter vertical outlet spigots. Removable tundishes were supplied when it was needed.
