West Cumberland Hospital, Cumbria


Iron technology leader Saint-Gobain PAM UK, part of international materials company Saint-Gobain, has further added to its supply contract to the new West Cumberland Hospital by agreeing a contract to supply shower gullies and floor drainage products from its new VortX range.

The company was already supplying its acclaimed Ensign Soil cast iron above ground pipes and fittings to the hospital in Whitehaven, Cumbria. A further agreement has now been made to supply 137 floor gully units and nickel bronze gratings for shower applications and 28 plant room drains. The gullies were selected thanks to their construction in cast iron and their design in accordance with the BS EN 1253 standard

St G 2The VortX products were required to go through a rigorous approval process by the local Health Authority for use within a hospital environment.

Richard Smith, Technical Sales Manager at Saint-Gobain PAM UK, said: “We are delighted to have secured such a large order for the VortX range, on such a prestigious project, over and above the supply of the Ensign Soil system.

“Our ability to offer a bespoke sized spigot for the drain bodies played a significant part in landing the order that will save the contractor valuable time on site.”
