System & Product Maintenance & Reclaim After Life.

Dura Products are manufactured from recycled polymers and are fully recyclable after use. If units cannot be re-used, they should be stacked and wrapped securely on pallets. We can then arrange collection at our cost and return to our works to be re-made.

Durakerb

1 – Durakerbs  are generally designed to be a permanent kerb edge feature and can be installed in varied hard-landscapes. The units will not rust or degrade over the life of a project and require little maintenance.

2 – Durakerbs are designed to perform in the toughest of trafficked environments and the frequency and necessity for maintenance is project specific.

3 – A visual inspection can be carried out periodically to assess the condition. It is usual to see scuff marks which will not affect the function or longevity of the product. Where damage is evident, generally a simple, safe and quick repair using Durakerb 2-Part Repair kit can bring the kerb back to its original state.

4 – Where there has been a serious accident and the kerbs need to be replaced, new units can be cut to size and patched-in. It is important to take the repair across the extent of any damage and ensure the existing bed and brace are sound. Units can then be re-installed using Durakerb bedding mortar or a strong polymer modified mortar with adhesive properties if considered necessary.

Duradrain & Durachannel

1 – Duradrain and Durachannel are designed to be integrated into varied hard-landscapes and perform the function of drainage within the channel body. After initial installation, each section of CKD/Channel should be jetted to ensure the bores are free of silt and debris. It is possible to jet from the surface through the slots/inlets working from an open access point to outlet. Outlets should also be free of silt and any obstruction. Once cleaned the access lids should be re-fitted and the locking bolts fixed securely.

2 – The frequency and necessity for maintenance is project specific and can be influenced by factors prior to collection and at outlet discharge. If necessary, a maintenance procedure can be agreed as part of the overall drainage strategy with a full risk assessment carried out.

3 – A visual inspection can be carried out periodically to assess the condition. It is usual to see scuff marks which will not affect the function or longevity of the product. Access lids should be checked to ensure they are locked and secure.

4 – Where there has been a serious accident and units require replacing, new units can be cut to size and patched-in. It is important to take the repair across the extent of any damage and ensure the existing bed and brace or huanches are sound. Units can then be re-installed using Durakerb bedding mortar or a strong polymer modified mortar with adhesive properties if considered necessary.

5 – It is important to assess the drainage function also. A visual inspection of the surrounding surfaces will generally provide evidence of pooling which could be a result of a blockage within the channel body. Any leaves, mud, and rubbish should be swept away from the inlet/slots so run-off entry is clear.

6 – Each section of CKD/Channel should be jetted to outlet to ensure the bores are free of silt and debris. It is possible to jet from the surface and loosen any stubborn weed growth through the slots/inlets working from an open access point to outlet. Outlets should also be cleared free of silt and any obstruction and the drainage connections are sound. Once cleaned the access lids should be re-fitted and the locking bolts fixed securely.

7 – Access Lids and Gully Units are bolted and locked using M10 socket head allen keys.
