Zurn solutions are down to earth

Universal Building Materials Merchants (UBM) continues to play an important role in the conservation of natural resources and water safety and hygiene by offering highly engineered water product solutions from Zurn of the US.

Zurn’s linear trench drain systems are pre-engineered, modular systems designed for ease of installation, load-bearing strength, hydraulics, chemical resistance, and structural integrity. They work well in manufacturing and industrial facilities, parking areas, swimming/sport facilities, tracks and athletic fields, high-volume roadside applications, airports, and food processing or pharmaceutical applications, according to a spokesman for UBM, Zurn’s exclusive distributor in Saudi Arabia.

He says: “Zurn develops innovative and performance-driven products focused on water conservation, water control, water safety and hygiene, and water comfort. Its diverse portfolio provides performance and reliability from the source of fresh water through to wastewater treatment.

Zurn offers the following lines of linear trench drainage systems:

Perma-Trench: This is a lightweight solution made from strong corrosion-resistant, high-density polyethylene (HDPE) material for commercial kitchens, convenience stores, travel plazas, shopping malls and industrial parks.

Hi-Cap Slotted: These systems are used where high-volume drainage is needed in applications such as airports, highways, cargo ports, rail stations, and car washing stations. This system is available in three sizes – 12-, 18- and 36-inch corrugated pipes.

Stainless steel linear shower drains: The linear shower drain frame and grate system provides an attractive drainage solution with superior water evacuation for residential, hospitality and healthcare installations.

Reveal frame and grate systems: These systems are used for cast-in-place concrete trench applications and are available in 6- and 12-inch-wide reveal with 10-ft-long sections or 17, 23 and 26-1/4-inch reveal with 80-inch-long sections. 

“Zurn linear drainage systems are strong and durable and can be used for the toughest job applications, with several advantages over on-site, cast-in-place forming or precast polymer concrete systems,” the spokesman claims.

Their lightweight modular assembly reduces labour during installation, thus eliminating costly levelling/alignment hardware, and reducing costly freight charges. The modular sections are assembled together to produce straight, uniform drainage systems.

The built-in moulded slope of the drainage systems produces superior flow characteristics, while their smooth, non-porous internal surface further enhances flow. In addition, optional accessories and ease of modification offer the most versatile trench drainage systems available to satisfy project requirements.

Zurn, headquartered in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, has its regional office in Dubai, UAE. For more than a century, it has established itself as an innovator and leading manufacturer of quality products.
