Marley Alutec has launched Elite, a multi-purpose flat roof and balcony drainage system that is reportedly compatible with all waterproofing membranes and roof build-ups, and an online roof drainage design tool.
The Elite outlets have been engineered to deliver flow performance of up to 19l/s. The membrane compression clamp design on Elite outlets, combined with butyl sealing rings, locks the waterproof membrane to the outlet body, ensuring a durable watertight seal.
The Elite outlets connect to all common PVCu, High Density Polyethylene Pipe (HDPE) and socketless cast iron pipework sizes, while all balcony outlets connect to aluminium (76mm and 72x72mm), PVCu (82mm and 11mm) and socketless cast iron (70mm and 100mm) pipework. PVCu pipe connectors provide an air tight seal and thermal break between the outlet body and connecting pipework. The Elite outlets have also been tested to a rainwater design depth of 1m.
“We identified a need in the market for universally compatible roof and balcony outlet products, so the Elite range was developed to make the specification process significantly easier,” commented Brian Bell, Head of Technical Services at Marley Alutec. “The new range is manufactured from high-quality marine-grade aluminium, which gives an extensive life expectancy of at least 50 years.
“The online roof drainage design tool calculates the number of outlets required based on location and specification, ensuring full compliance with the BS EN12056-3 standard. This provides users with a full set of drainage calculations to confirm suitability of the product, as well as links to detailed product specific information.”
