Stability meets design

Richard Brink to present its new ‘Poly-Fortis’ product at BAU 2019

Richard Brink GmbH & Co. KG will once again prove that modern dewatering solutions do not have to forego modern design at the BAU 2019 trade fair. The new polymer concrete channels and drainage units meet the highest standards of functionality and aesthetics, as will soon be demonstrated by the metal products manufacturer in booth 109, hall B2, of the fair in Munich from 14 to 19 January.

The new trade fair year is set to get off to a flying start in January with an industry highlight: BAU is the world’s leading trade fair for architecture, materials and systems, and one of the most important meeting points for everyone involved in the planning, construction and design of buildings. At Richard Brink’s booth, visitors can discover the many versatile products that are available, including dewatering and drainage solutions and roof and plant systems.

Lightweight resilience

One highlight this year will be the ‘Poly-Fortis’ channels and drainage units made from polymer concrete. They are now available in all standard sizes of the ‘Fortis’ concrete channels already on the market. These new products are impressively lightweight while offering maximum resilience. Despite minimal wall thicknesses and large cross-sections for maximum flow, they are highly resilient, right up to class D 400. This is made possible by a mix of materials comprising selected mineral components and premium resins. The resulting stability and rigidity protects the dewatering systems from all types of damage. From transport and installation to the loads to which it is exposed in the given application area, this material can withstand any adverse strain. Customers do not have to compromise when it comes to functionality and resilience.

Versatile design is the cherry on the cake

Also when it comes to aesthetics, the metal products manufacturer has everything taken care of. The consistently timeless design is incorporated throughout the entire polymer concrete range, regardless of load class. In addition, the channels can be combined with any heavy-duty covers from Richard Brink, including the stainless steel or hot-dip galvanised steel mesh and longitudinal bar gratings. Premium designer gratings are also an option when it comes to meeting top style standards, which Richard Brink can make in heavy-duty versions upon request.

High-quality cast gratings have also been added to the product range. The ‘Zippa’ and ‘Prisma’ designs can handle loads of over 40 tonnes – the ‘Zippa’ grating even meets the requirements for load class E 600. The high resilience of the gratings is ensured not only by the premium cast alloy used to make them but also by their sophisticated shape, which lends these products a high-quality aesthetic.

In general, the cover gratings for all load classes are made to precisely fit the design concept in question, no matter whether they are traditionally perforated, mesh gratings or designer gratings with a wavy shape or bar structure. Trade fair visitors will have the chance to see the high quality and sophisticated design of these new products and all other Richard Brink products for themselves at the booth in January. Richard Brink employees will be happy to advise anyone who is interested in learning more.

Richard Brink will be at BAU 2019, where it will prove once again that functionality and modern design are not mutually exclusive. See for yourself at booth 109 in hall 2.A great example is the new ‘Poly-Fortis’, with a premium look found in all versions and load classes of the polymer concrete channels and drainage units. These products are impressively lightweight and yet still have maximum resilience. The metal products manufacturer also offers a number of compatible heavy-duty gratings, making the design possibilities almost limitless.Premium cast gratings are also new to the product range – the one pictured here is the ‘Prisma’ grating. Its sophisticated shape lends it a high-quality aesthetic. The cast gratings can handle loads of over 40 tonnes – the ‘Zippa’ model even meets the requirements for load class E 600.
