Plastic resilience

Richard Brink expands its range of channels

Richard Brink GmbH & Co. KG is expanding its product range to include channel bodies made of polypropylene (PP). The lightweight plastic Kufor channel is used on surfaces that are exposed to low direct loads but are driven across by cars. When equipped with heavy-duty slotted channels, it can even withstand loads up to class D 400. It therefore ensures constant reliable drainage.

The plastic Kufor channel is renowned for being so lightweight. It is available in material thicknesses of 1.5mm or 3.0mm and represents an affordable alternative to channels made of other materials. Both walls of the channel as well as the bottom offer multiple connection options for drainage pipes. Corner and T-connections are also possible between the individual elements. A frame or guide bracket can be used to easily connect one plastic channel body to the next. Different modules can be added to the product: frames, gratings and slotted channel attachments made of stainless steel or hot-dip galvanised sheet steel complete the drainage system.

In combination with a grating cover, the channel meets requirements for load classes A 15 to B 125. If a slotted channel is used, it can be delivered as a heavy-duty version, making the plastic body even stronger. A slotted channel attachment results in a collar height of 160mm. Otherwise the installation height of the Kufor channel with a frame is 101, 151 or 201mm. It is available in nominal widths of DN 100 and DN 150.

Thanks to its modular construction, the Kufor channel can be combined with various covers, e.g. with stainless steel mesh gratings.The polypropylene body can be fitted with a slotted channel attachment. This is also available as a heavy-duty version, allowing it to withstand loads of up to class D 400.
