Wrekin first to offer 10 year guarantee on manhole and gully covers
Engineered for a long life and assured performance, the Unite series of manhole covers and gully tops from Wrekin Products now come with a ten-year guarantee. This is the first time a manufacturer has demonstrated such confidence in this type of product.
The leading designer, manufacturer and supplier of products for the civil engineering industry is so certain of the range’s durability – which has been in service on highways around the UK for more than 11 years with zero failures on 250,000 installations – that it is now providing any compliant Unite product installations with added reassurance of their performance.
The guarantee gives merchants an additional selling point, as well as providing security and peace of mind to contractors, local authorities and utilities companies.
Simon Turner, Wrekin’s commercial director, said: “We’re incredibly proud of our Unite series and how its innovative design, which was a decade in the making, has been backed up by its fantastic performance, which is why we’re the first manufacturer to offer a guarantee of this type.
“Correct installation with our Unipak bedding system is essential to ensure performance. Alongside the registration of the installation, it’s a key part of meeting the guarantee requirements.
“This guarantee provides our customers with a simple way to feel assured of the high standard of performance of our products, as well as delivering value through a long-life solution.”
The Unite range is full of patented design features that combine to give the longest life – and therefore lowest whole life cost – of any D400 access covers and gratings on the market. Unite exceeds both BS EN 124:2015 and HA104/09 requirements.
