Plumbing & Drainage Shines at Ecobuild 2012

Ecobuild 2012

The UK’s largest independent manufacturer of plastic building products, Brett Martin Plumbing and Drainage, has enjoyed one of the most successful ever Ecobuild exhibitions with the number of visitors to the London show a significant improvement on previous years.

Visitors to the Brett Martin stand were treated to their first glimpse of the new Rainwater Harvesting system, which offers cost and performance benefits to both the homeowner and the installer. Brett Martin’s choice of Home and Garden and Garden Only Rainwater Harvesting solutions both use a direct feed system, which does not require a loft tank and generates much better pressure than header tank systems, making them more suitable for use with many domestic applications.

Visitors also saw firsthand the immediate benefits of the Cascade range of Cast Iron Style Rainwater and Soil Systems, which combines traditional appearances with the convenience of modern materials. Engineered from plastic, the Cascade range meticulously replicates the detail of real cast iron. The attention to such a quality finish means that it is almost impossible to tell the difference between the modern and the traditional materials except of course that it is light in weight, easy to install and maintenance free.

Further to this, visitors were also able to experience many of Brett Martin underground drainage fittings and in particular were impressed by the new innovative Twinwall Multi-Fittings range, which boasts 24 fittings that are compatible with polyethylene Twinwall pipes from other manufacturers and are fully BBA certified for use in Highway Drainage with specified makes of pipes and seals. Brett Martin’s Multi-Fit Twinwall Drainage fittings, in 150mm, 225mm and 300mm diameters, are suitable for use in storm and land drainage applications including highway, agricultural, rail, airport and landfill drainage.

Brett Martin Sales Director Graham Smith commented: “The indications we received from visitors pointed towards an increase in construction activity towards the latter part of the year on major infrastructure and utility projects, which would ultimately see a strengthening in demand for groundworks. In addition, the proposed changes to planning policy in more architecturally sensitive areas resulted in a large number of enquiries for projects requiring heritage style rainwater systems, such as our Cascade range.”

“We also spoke to a lot of consumers who were concerned about the planned hosepipe bans and were expressing an interest in our new Rainwater Harvesting system, which will be available shortly to purchase through builders’ merchants across the country” advised Graham.
