Waterflow wins WRc approval
30 January 2008, News release from WATERFLOW SERVICES GROUP
The Waterflow Group Plc has gained WRc approval for the installation of the Berolina-Liner manhole-to-manhole cured-in-place lining system.
'WRc Approved' is an independent technical view on whether a product is fit to do the job for which it is intended, or a contractor is fit to provide a specified service. Products and services submitted for approval are assessed by WRc against an existing technical specification or an assessment schedule for the specific product or service.
The Berolina-Liner was awarded 'WRc Approved' product status in May 2007, and Waterflow has been undergoing an assessment process which led to their receiving WRc approval as an installer on 08 November 2007.
The procedure involved reviewing test data, assessment of the installation manual and a check of product specifications and installation techniques against established standards including BS EN 13566. This was followed by site visits and auditing by WRc personnel to establish that the methods used by Waterflow comply with the accepted specifications.
Waterflow Director Roger Kern commented, "We want our customers to have every reassurance that the products and procedures we use have been assessed to meet all relevant specifications for quality and fitness for purpose. The WRc Approved certification is an important part of this, and is part of our commitment to maintaining the highest standards."
Waterflow is currently using the Berolina-Liner for the renovation of 150-300 mm diameter pipes in Canvey Island and Southend, as part of a contract for Barhale Construction and Anglian Water. The pre-impregnated liner tube is cured by UV light rather than conventional thermal methods, which speeds up installation times and minimises environmental risks.
