Halifax Soil & Drain is a socketless, mechanically jointed cast iron drainage and wastewater system. It is designed to minimise installation difficulties and maintenance costs over its lifetime. This is a fit and forget system.
It provides all the benefits of conventional cast iron systems but also offers significant savings on installation costs, due to modern jointing techniques which employ ductile iron or stainless steel couplings.
The Halifax System is finished externally in a two part epoxy coating, red for above ground and grey for below ground.
The complete range is fully compliant with BS EN 877:1999 + A1:2006 Incorporating Corrigendum 2008 and has been tested and approved by both BBA and BSI Kitemark
Independent, third party fire tests undertaken by BRE (Building Research Establishment) on a Halifax Soil system resulted in a classification of A2-s1, d0. This is the best rating currently possible for systems complying with BS EN 877
It is desirable to reduce the ambient noise in any structure and especially so in hospitals, hotels, schools etc. As noted in Annexe F of BS EN 877, cast iron has excellent sound insulating properties due to its material density.
Both our above and below ground systems have achieved a Kitemark from The British Standards Institution (BSI) and BBA Agrément Certificate from the British Board of Agrément. You can download copies of the certificates below
