Why Do We Need Headwall Drainage?
Published: 25th March 2021
When you have a drainage pipe designed to discharge water, it is best to install a headwall drainage outlet. Headwalls make sure that the water flow does not erode the pipe or any surrounding area. In addition, they provide support for bridges, roads and other structures while allowing water to pass through without any barriers. So, what places are you most likely to find the use of headwalls? Also, what are the main benefits of installing one? (more…)
Choosing The Perfect Drainage Outfall For Your Project
Published: 9th March 2021
To protect the end of your drainage pipe from the effects of discharging water, you need to have the right drainage outfalls. Drainage outfalls help guard the pipe and adjacent structures from erosion or damage from water pressure. They also increase the efficiency of the drainage pipes, directing the flow of water whilst reducing turbulence. Outfalls can vary based on material used as well as overall design. As such, it is important to make sure that the outfall you choose is the right one for your project. Read on to learn more about the range of outfalls that JKH Drainage can offer you.
Why Do I Need A Silt Trap?
Published: 6th November 2020
Silt traps are an essential element of any efficient surface water run-off system. When silt from draining surface water gets into a drainage system it can affect its ability to function properly. Clogged pipes or silted soakaways can cause a build-up of this surface water. In the worst cases significant surface flooding can occur, and often the drainage system will need replacing. This is not only costly but unnecessary, and can be avoided using efficient silt traps.
