Duradrain & Durachannel are produced to a harmonised standard (EN1433), carry the CE mark and therefore they can, and should be approved for use subject to meeting the minimum stipulated requirements within the standard and any interim revision in force.
For any project with additional approval criteria/qualification beyond the minimum requirements as stipulated above, on receipt of information, we can advise as to the suitability and performance of products within a specific design.
It is important for designers to understand that the CE mark verifies product compliance however the actual load performance and longevity of a product/system is not limited to the strength of the individual unit. Correct design and installation will enhance performance and ensure best integration across a project providing longevity of system.
Additionally, any hydraulic or secondary function needs to be specifically compared and checked against a project’s overall design and drainage strategy.
Our Installation guide provides advice and data to help ensure a best and optimum solution is realised for your project.
