Laboratories are found in many different buildings: in hospitals, research facilities, universities and schools, as well as a variety of industrial environments.  In all of these applications, the need to handle chemical waste means safety and long-term system performance are of paramount importance. 

When designing, installing or operating a laboratory, you need to be sure that the drainage system you are working with can give you peace of mind for the lifetime of the application. This peace of mind comes from working with a complete system that is specifically designed for chemical drainage, supported by technical expertise to advise on the requirements of each individual project.

Over 65 years of innovation in chemical drainage, we have developed a reputation for quality that means our systems are now specified globally as the gold standard for complete, safe laboratory drainage. We provide an unrivalled level of support from the beginning of a project right through to completion; whether it is needed around design and specification or on-site installation advice and training, our in-house chemist and technical team are on hand to assist, backed up by our live seminars, video tutorials, and e-learning modules.

To meet the rapidly evolving needs of modern laboratory design, our Vulcathene system includes a comprehensive range of sinks, wastes, traps, floor gullies and other laboratory bench and furniture items that have been developed as part of a fully matched range alongside our pipe and fittings. This means that Vulcathene is trusted as a complete laboratory solution, as well as being the only system on the market to be BBA-approved for laboratory drainage.
