Cast-iron drainage sales surge ahead
Saint-Gobain PAM UK has reported significant increases in demand for its innovative push-fit above-ground drainage system. Sales of the Ensign EEZI-FIT cast-iron push-fit products nearly doubled during 2011 over the previous year. These products combine the established virtues of cast iron (strength, robustness, durability, longevity and minimal maintenance) with the ease of installation associated with push-fit systems.
Mike Rawlings, marketing manager for soil and drain with the company, says, ‘Interest and demand for the Ensign EEZI-FIT range has continued to buck the trend in the construction sector. Specifiers and contractors are attracted by its competitiveness through its speed of installation compared with plastic-based systems which often require fusion welding and extended time before testing.’
